MST3K: I Accuse My Parents

Get this MST3K Episode!

Please choose a format above.

Local essay contest winner Jimmy is on trial for manslaughter and does what every child of affluence would do: he accuses his parents. Hey, we have a title!

It’s a typical Norman Rockwell vision of the nuclear family. Mom leaves out the Martini and Rossi for Jimmy, and Dad gives him a whole five dollars to spend on loose-leaf paper. Sure, Dad screams at Mom all the time and Mom shows up to the local mother’s dinner three sheets to the wind, but at least his songstress girlfriend ordered four lobsters at the restaurant. 

In order to pay for this rampant shellfish ordering, Jimmy takes up a “side-job” with a “totally legitimate businessman,” picking up “packages” and doing “favors.” If it was obvious to you that this guy’s a gangster, good news: you’re smarter than a local essay contest winner.

Will Jimmy get out of the mobster’s grasp? Will there be yet another musical number? Will the judge buy that this has anything to do with his parents?

Find out with Joel, Servo, and Crow as they point an accusatory finger at I Accuse My Parents!
