Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The first time we see the bulldozer in the chase sequence, the smoke is going into the exhaust.
  • The Cadillac that Mitchell picks up the old lady in is a 1975 model. When he later blows the car up, it turns into a 1967 model.
  • The main rotor of the police helicopter is turning much slower in the close ups than in the long shots; revealing that the close ups were shot on the ground or on a sound stage (the sound of the rotors is steady throughout the scene).
  • This was Joel Hodgson's final episode as host.
  • Joe Don Baker was purportedly furious about MST3K's treatment of his film in this episode, and even said in an interview that he would "kick [the writers'] @$" if he ever met them. As a result, the MST3K writers would later mock another Baker film called Final Justice, in which they were deliberately cruel and relentless in making fun of Baker and his performance.
