The Bulging Android of MST3K
The second episode that Jonah and the bots riff on, The Time Travelers (1964), sends the hapless scientists Dr. Von Steiner (Preston Foster) and Steve (Philip Carey) into the future, along with dumb blond "What's a proton?" Carol (Merry Anders) and comic relief "What does this button do?" Danny (Steve Franken).
They find a wilderness occupied by barbaric mutants. The last survivors of humanity live in caves, where they are assisted by androids with weird faces.
The surviving humans are trying to build a spaceship to go to Alpha Centauri before they're killed by "the creeping death" or the marching mutants. Meanwhile the scientists try to find a way home.
The plot is topheavy, cliched, and horrible -- which is why MST3K chose it, after all -- but take a look at the androids as they march in to confront the startled time-travelers. Apparently it's important to for the surviving humans to gawk at android pecs.
And #32, on the left: that's quite a package for loose-fitting green dungarees.
The only male android listed in the credits is "Wayne Anderson," who was primarily known as a special effects artist.
And, apparently, for his Kovbasa+++.
