thanksgiving just got better


Good news for MST3K fans: Joel Hodgson, the show’s creator/original star, will be hosting an MST3K Turkey Day Marathon again. Twelve hours of classic riffs from Joel, Mike, and the bots. The MST3K-TDM starts at 9 AM EST, and will be streamed online by Shout! Factory, the company that produces the show’s DVD collection. I watched some of the marathon last year. It included some of my favorites, like Space Mutiny and The Final Sacrifice. There were also episodes I had never seen before, like the riff of Mitchell, starring Joe Don Baker. I’m sure this year’s selections will be every bit as good. Here’s a link to the MST3K Youtube channel, where they’ll be streaming the marathon.

  1. John D.:
    Now THAT most definitely makes my holiday…!
    Nothing goes better with stuffing and cranberry sauce than Tom Servo, Gypsy and Crow.
    Toss in Joel and/or Mike with a “B” movie, and the day is complete.

    Sounds like a WINNER.

    Thanks for passing this on.
    Stay safe out there.


  2. Mitchell is the changing of the guard episode between Joel and Mike and is a must see for that reason alone. How can you go wrong with a movie that ends with a freeze frame of the hero busting his hooker girlfriend?


    • Believe it or not, I had never seen it before. I started watching MST3K when it moved to Sci Fi, so I hadn’t seen too many of the Joel episodes. I’ve seen a number of them now, and MItchell is my favorite from the Joel era.
