During the first two seasons, the characters of Dr. Forrester, Dr. Ehrhardt and TV's Frank are credited as "Special Guest Villains", a la the "Batman" TV series. See more »
Episode 701 (Night of the Bloodbeast), has two different host segments. One was to be aired once on Thanksgiving day of 1995 that went with some earlier bumpers from the marathon. Another was taped for regular rotation. The "Turkey Day Version", ended up being aired a few more times. See more »
MST3K is without a doubt one of the funniest shows ever made. It's hard to believe there could be anything that could make horrible movies like 'Hobgoblins' fun to watch. The show is clever and witty. It's hard to believe a show about a group of three making comments while watching a movie could spawn a ten year series and a movie. But it was done, and I'm sure we're all thankful for that. It's a shame the show has ended but the went out with a bang, making the series finale 'Danger: Diabolik' one of the best of the series; my personal favorite is 'Hobgoblins'. See the reruns and rent the movie whenever possible!
