It's the the day of the Snow King election ball. Jackie expected to compensate her lost wealth by excelling popularity, so she was friendly -to some- for two whole weeks. Michael is elected king, but when vice principal Cole announces a tornado red alert his admirable efforts to preside over emergency measures, the royal leadership is hardly taken as seriously as it deserves. Jackie is crushed to be mere runner up for queen, so Kelso's girl, not the other way around. Hyde came with some of 'his best', to build a party his style in coach's office, gets caught in the act, but when coach hears about his phobia -tornado- decides to try something: smoking weed! Fez and Rhonda decide also to get rid of their virginity, but... Meanwhile Bob and his floozy Joanne Stupac, who have no shelter, kill time in Red's basement, and his mood...

This was Mila Kunis' favorite episode because she got to play Dorothy in the fantasy scene, a role she was denied in grade school. See more »


Eric had no idea a tornado was behind his car. During a tornado, there would be strong winds, & debris but the air was calm. He would have noticed some kind of weather change, like humidity, rain, wind, etc. The tornado comes & goes without leaving any signs of it blowing through. See more »


Jackie Burkhart: [Begins the dream sequence as Dorothy walking to her direction] Oh, Toto. Losing Snow Queen has left me searching for guidance. Surely, the Wizard of oz can help.
[Stops walking as she bumps into Kelso as Scarecrow]
Michael Kelso: Oh, well, Jackie, why'd you make me the Scarecrow? He needs a brain!
Jackie Burkhart: No. No, I made you the Scarecrow because you love chasing birds.
Michael Kelso: I do love chasing birds.

A good party with a Tornado.
30 July 2006 | by anali74See all my reviews

There is a "Party of the Snow" in the high school, so the gang plan to go with their best clothes. Eric said to Donna that he will pick up her from the Radio. When all arrive to the party, Eric remembers that he didn't pick up her, so he takes his car. Meanwhile, Kelso is named "King of the snow" and Jackie is second after the Queen, so she gets really angry. A teacher says everybody in the party that a tornado is coming to the city that night. Fez and Rhonda decide that would be a good opportunity for making love for first time during the tornado. The Headmaster surprises Hyde in his office with Marijuana. At first he get very angry, but then Hyde convinced him to join to it during the tornado. Kelso and Jackie appear in the office too. Eric arrives to the Radio and Donna tells him he is her hero, for coming to get her in the middle of a tornado. Eric didn't know about the tornado so he don't say anything. They have a nice night laughing together. A teacher says the tornado is already in another state. Then Rhonda decides isn't a good idea to make it with Fez without a tornado. Donna and Eric hear in the radio that the danger is out, then he kisses her and finally he confess he forgot to pick up her and he hadn't any idea of the tornado, so he isn't a hero. Donna says he stoled her a kiss, and that it doesn't mind now.
