    1979 Muppet Movie Screen Test / part 2
    {via Melissa K}

    A joke from every episode of MST3K

    The fan who created the compilation says:
    “At the end of three months that I’ll never get back, here is a project I’ve been wanting to do for some time. Every single movie that MST3k ever riffed. And as many shorts as I could get. And anything else MST3k related I felt belonged here. Enjoy.”


    Featured image is Mantis Shrimp by Perry Aragon and was used in the Crayola-ification story. Incidentally the Mantis Shrimp was the Geologic Podcast’s Interesting Fauna, Show 268.
