Robot Holocaust Recap

In the opening, Joel explains the concept of the show and then sings a blues song about how he's a "hu-man", using the phrase from Robot Monster. In the invention exchange, Joel demonstrates a Monster Truck "funny pipe", for when you want to smoke during Monster Truck rallies when smoking isn't permitted. Clayton has Larry demonstrate their ski mask with remote-control moveable features so that robbers can be more expressive. Then Joel and the bots have to sit through chapter nine of the interminable Radar Man from the Moon, where Cody and Ted escape the previous week's cliffhanger and gad about for a while. The film breaks, interrupting the experiment, so it's on to the show's first color movie, Robot Holocaust.

-----

At the first break, the bots declare the bridge the "We Zone" in honor of the film's "She Zone". To pass, Joel has to perform tricks for them.

-----

Cambot's sitcom simulator goes berserk, giving everything Joel and the bots do a laugh track. Joel is forced to shut it down.

-----

At the third break, Servo directs Tom and Joel in a recreation of the movie. They soon lose interest, particularly when they discover the animal skins they're wearing are roadkill.

-----

Joel and the Bots hold a contest to name the guy who is turned into a giant pod person/avocado in the movie. A father writes in and says that he and his 7-year-old son are fans. The Mads remind Tom to recite the fan club address.
