MST3k, Experiment #0605

In a Time of Titans Colussus Towered Above All!!! Colossus and The Headhunters.

They are captured by the Urias but when the Queen Amoha meets Maciste, she tells that the traitor Kermis has joined the tribe of Head Hunters and slaughtered her people, but the warrior Taro has saved them from the annihilation; however, her father King Olibauna was missing in action. She asks Maciste to help her against the Head Hunters, but Maciste tells that he is protecting the tribe of Ario. When the Urias are attacked by the Head Hunters, Maciste decides to help Queen Amoha.

Oh Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter...

What is there really to say about this episode except that the host segments are classic. The whole premise of Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter is just... insane... yet so endearing and cute and fun and... insane. I really wish they would sell little stuffed doll versions of Muffin for people to buy...

Although they do kind of answer this simply by its existence, I have to wonder why they didn't have Frank singing more often!! This is one of my favourite songs, and definitely one of Frank's shining moments... The song is actually very sweet and heartfelt, and yet I cry from laughing every time I even think of it. Kudos to Frank for that wonderful rendition of a lovely song!!!

As for the movie... it's kind of bland. There really isn't much to it, but it's another fun "herc" style film, and provides some really great jokes. I never once grew tired of the "my cheesesteak" jokes, and I never once found myself bored by the riffing.

All in all, a great episode... yet mostly due to Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter.


Favourite line: "It would be really great if we found some land!!!"
