Episode 508: Operation Double 007
First aired: Comedy Central on 11 September 1993
It aired 14 or 15 times on Comedy Central between September 1994 and August 1996 (one scheduled airing may not have occurred, but records for that particular 2:00 AM showing aren't that reliable). I never saw any of them.
Now, I had heard of the movie. It was released as Operation Kid Brother, and was rather infamous as, well, exactly what it was: an attempt to capitalize on an actor's fame by making a film with the famous actor's brother.

Like I said, I had heard of this film long before there was ever a Mystery Science Theater 3000, but didn't see it until well after there was no longer a Mystery Science Theater 3000. I saw it just recently, in fact, when I obtained a fan copy.
This episode has never been released, and a fan copy is the only way to see it.
The movie, in fact, has only been released on VHS, but it's out of print and not available. Maybe on eBay.
|Frank likes Lederhosen.
|Torgo returns with the Mr Pibbs.
Remember at the end of Episode 424: Manos: The Hands of Fate, Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank had pizza delivered? And Torgo, the delivery man, forgot the Mr Pibbs? Well, he finally got them out of the car.
Lots of silly and fun stuff. And, for me, it clicked.
It was only recently that I first saw this episode. It won't be that long before I watch it again.
Bad movie with bad acting and bad writing and good riffing. What's not to love?
