    Feel like it should be noted there will be new hosts.

    Loved the episode about the dubbed Mexican Santa Claus film.

    Kid's letter: Santa, will you bring me a little brother for Christmas?
    Santa: Oh ho ho! Can do, can do!

    Or the Rifftrax version of it.

    Mike as Santa: Oh ho ho, looks like Santa's gonna have to get BIZ-ZAAAYYY!!!

    Saw this on my Twitter feed and almost screamed on the bus!

    The idea of this succeeding and MST3K being picked up by a network for a whole new run has me shaking. This is awesome! I'm going to try to donate as much as I can!

    I really love that one as well. Hell, I actually watch this and the episode with the film called Santa Claus Conquers The Martians every year as part of my own Christmas marathon. Never saw the Rifftrax one though.

    The Rifftrax one was a live show for last year actually; there's a preview clip of it on their YouTube channel.

    I'm excited. I met Joel at a convention last year and he told me that he had this in mind with the kickstarter and everything. I think it's impressive that they've made so much funding just in the first day. I don't mind a new host and new mads, as that's all changed before, but it's going to be weird having different voices for Servo and Crow, unless Trace Bealiue is doing Crow again that is, but the Rifftrax guys have said they're not involved and to me, Kevin Murphy IS the voice of Tom Servo. In any case, I hope they have a cool in universe explanation as to why this is happening again. In the final episode the Satellite of Love was destroyed and Crow and Servo went on to live with Mike.

    I'm really happy to see the support this is already garnering. I'd love to donate myself, but right now I have other priorities, like feeding my kids.

    Damn right.
    Servo's my boy. Won't sound right with someone else's voice. But I did get used to Bill Corbett instead of Trace doing Crow, so I'll live with it. I doubt the new guy will have Tom's great singing voice, though.

    Just repeat to yourself "It's just a show, I should really just relax" :p 

    Just messin' with ya. There may be an explanation, but it will probably be very quick and contrived (on purpose). I bet they briefly touch on the new puppet voices, too.

    You know people are probably tight lipped on whats planned and theres a few misinformation being thrown around to throw people off track. I find it strange how MST3K episodes have just became available on Rifftrax and they are not somehow involved.

    Let me play devils advocate here and ask, do we need MST3K back? We got Rifftrax and the version Joel and them do. I think things like Rifftrax are good. You can do big huge movies and have zero rights issues. Plus you have shorts you can do too. We don't need a tv show again to be honest.


    I love MST3K and all, but it has been a long time since I watched it if bought a Rifftrax. I'm fine either way they go, but I honestly don't see a need for it. Rifftrax fills the void well enough.

    Did you read the Kickstarter page. It answers your question and touches on the subject that you pointed out.

    Goddamnit. I spent to much goddamn money on the Megarobots kickstarter so I could eventually see battle mechs beat the shit out of each other. And now MST3K is coming back?

    Do I really need that $100 keychain? Hmmm...so much for ultimately something so small, but fucking hell do I love the idea of using the keychain as an excuse to call my sporty little Mazda2 a Megaweapon because Warrior of the Lost World is one of my all-time favorite MST3K eps...

    Speculation time.

    I predict that the new mad is a Forrester. Maybe an unknown offspring of Pearl or the Son of Clayton. Or better yet, Clayton's father.

    I almost want to see them get a billion dollars to see if they will follow through with the promise of adopting a real live teenage boy and “Truman Show” him into believing he is the Pumaman!

    Watch as in that scenario, the teenage boy in question turns out to be the new show host.
