Stingers for Stinger-Less Episodes

Starting with episode 205, “Rocket Attack USA”, MST3K almost always put up a stinger with a moment from the movie (or sometimes the short) they just riffed on. Like I said though, this didn’t start until the 5th episode of Season 2, and even then one more Season 2 episode didn’t have one, nor did one Season 5 episode (which was used to pay tribute to a recently deceased) and four Season 8 episodes.

So, let’s have a discussion of what would be good stingers for these episodes. Just doing the national run for this, but if someone wants to try KTMA ones they’re free too. The ones I’m seeing are:
101: The Crawling Eye
102: The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy (w/Commando Cody Chapter 1)
103: The Mad Monster (w/Commando Cody Chapter 2)
104: Women of the Prehistoric Planet
105: The Corpse Vanishes (w/Commando Cody Chapter 3)
106: The Crawling Hand
107: Robot Monster (w/Commando Cody Chapters 4 and 5)
108: The Slime People (w/Commando Cody Chapter 6)
109: Project Moon Base (w/Commando Cody Chapters 7 and 8)
110: Robot Holocaust (w/Commando Cody Chapter 9)
111: Moon Zero Two
112: Untamed Youth
113: The Black Scorpion
201: Rocketship X-M
202: The Side Hackers
203: Jungle Goddess (w/The Phantom Creeps Part 1)
204: Catalina Caper
207: Wild Rebels
523: Village of the Giants
805: The Thing That Couldn’t Die
806: The Undead
807: Terror from the Year 5000
808: The She-Creature

I’ll say that I think for Wild Rebels, they could have used Fats making the train noise. First one that popped into my head.

107: Robot Monster

“To be like the hu-man! To laugh! Feel! Want!”

Rocketship X-M - The guy from Texas getting all upset that it was referred to as a mere speck.

Jungle Goddess is obvious - “I can’t wait to have a hamburger sandwich and french fries!”

Alternatively, if they wanted to use the short instead of the movie (they’ve done it a few times):

Yeah the Village of the Giants one is pretty obvious… I mean that’s the image used on most of the posters

Don’t have anything to add to this thread except that every time I see this topic line pop up I keep thinking it has something to do with Sting and now I can’t get the image of Sting standing on the SOL wearing a space bee suit out of my head so thank you very much for that thought.

Singer Sting or wrestler Sting (the latter of which has the trademark, but only charges the former a minimal fee to use)?

Singer Sting, though I say let’s double the Sting and get them both onboard!
