Corrected entry: Mike and the Bots are supposedly being forced to watch the film, "This Island Earth", but the version they watch has had quite a bit of material edited out for time.

Correction: This isn't a mistake. In the series they often edit many sections of the films out. One I remember particularly is a robot fight scene in the episode where they mocked 'Hobgoblins.'

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when Crow says "Woo Hoo... Woo Hoo...." you can hear some sort of an echo, which is another "Woo Hoo...."


Correction: Well, they are in a theater, so it's a possibility that that could happen.

Revealing mistake: After the second movie sign, when everyone gets into the theater and sits down, there's a very obvious cut, as all the characters cut immediately from the position that they sat down in to a completely different position. (00:28:05)

Question: This applies to the TV series as well as the Movie. How are the "watching the movie" segments filmed? Are they literally sitting in front of a large screen? In some of the TV episodes, Joel/Mike is seen pointing to something on the screen. And do they film each segment as one, or is it cut into different takes?

Chosen answer: They sit in front of a big screen -- or rather Joel or Mike sat. The puppeteers crouch down below the row of seats and hold up special black puppets to project the silhouettes. They did do takes for segments of the movies. I imagine it would be painful for the puppeteers to crouch for 90 minutes!
