Jackie Coogan's makeup in Mesa of Lost Women.

The big cardboard box robot from Devil Girl From Mars.

Plan 9, sure, but what about some of Ed's other efforts -- Night of the Ghoul has an extended sequence of one guy leading another down what is supposed to be a darkened corridor -- but there is nothing behind them, absolutely nothing.  So you have two spotlighted guys walking across a black screen.  Over and over again.

The dinosaur puppets from Future War (I only know this one from MST but I can't imagine it gets any better uncut.)

Geez, the list goes on and on ....

Oh, I forgot "The Brainiac." Wow. People standing in front of "exterior scenery" which appears to be poster-sized enlarged photographs pasted to the studio wall; a comet strike that consists of a blurry "cartoon" still followed by a papier-mache (uh oh, that's French, isn't it?--I mean "Freedom wad") clump faling down to Earth like the huge weight in a Monty Python skit...and Brainy himself: the silliest-looking horror monster of all time, with a fixed stuck-out tongue and pulsating air-bladders that enhance the silliness, not the horror. Joy.

Wow!!  I knew this would be a good topic -- so many happy memories!!
I tried not to mention Robot Monster or good old Ed Wood in my post because they are sort of the unspoken Industry Standard in this category -- but Squishy's mention of the rickety wooden table really does deserve to be mentioned, if only because the first thing you think of  in Plan 9 are the bad saucer/bad cemetary effects, and such masterpieces as the table get (unjustly) overlooked.
Yes!!  Grinning Marionette Spiders!!  I had forgotten -- we need more like this --
Yes!!  The Killer Shrews!! -- I love especially how you can see the dogs panting happily under their shrew-skins in some scenes -- obviously having fun with this new "cover-me-up!" game.
I own "Beginning of The End".  You can quite clearly see a grasshopper walk off the side of the building and into "open sky" on the photograph that the hopper-wrangler just threw them on.
What the hell was that Corman-released Italian sword & sorcery thing about the 2 princesses?  They have this really bad bat-winged lion-demon in the sky at one point fighting this gal who looks like the rocket-in-the-eye guy from George Melies' "Journey to the Moon".  Anyway, the hero gets attacked in a forest at one point by all these red apes, and you can see the BOOTIE-FEET on their zip-up costumes.

Ah, "Sorceress" - that is where some more of the "Wizards of the Lost Kingdom" footage came from.  I also think that, as has been said, it used stuff from "The Warrior and the Sorceress."

Could have sworn that I had a copy of "Sorceress" around here.  It must be buried under other movies on the shelves.   Some of the VHS shelves are three movies deep.  Not looking foward to moving all this and hoping that base housing in New York has ample shelving.  If not, I will have to build some.

Darn it, I know that I own that movie.  Where is it?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
