Somewhere within the A1:O32 crescent of the best MST3K episodes lies experiment #319: War of the Colossal Beast, which features Joel and the ‘bots tackling the sequel to The Amazing Colossal Man (experiment # 309). The Colossal man, having been disfigured and brain damaged, is drugged and transported by the Army, which sets them on a collision course for wackiness!
This episode is more infamous still for featuring the short film: Mr. B Natural. Mr. B Natural (played by Betty Luster) is a hyped up, androgynous, musical pixie who would go on to become a recurring and popular character in the pantheon of side-MSTie players (given new life by Bridget Jones). Also delightful is an appearance by pre-host duties Mike Nelson as Glenn, the amazing colossal man himself, paying a visit to the Satellite of Love. Join us, won’t you? (Chuck Francisco)
