25 Years of True Comedy Entertainment!
Although this screen shot picture is from the episode K00-The Green Slime (http://youtu.be/Zr0gOx-LXQM), the first episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 to air, aired 25 years ago today, November 24, 1988 on the UHF TV-station KTMA in Minnesota. The first 3 episodes are considered “The Lost Episodes”, but since K04 onward, I’ve have had a blast watching episodes over and over, finding something new and laughing my ass off.
I was 8 (1988) when it premiered, but I was 14/15 (1995) when I discovered MST3K Hour being played on (the now defunct) KOOG Channel 30 here in Utah because my mom wanted to watch it over SNL… Thank you so much mom! I bought two copies of the MST3K book (first one fell apart because I went through it so much!). Found out they released MST3K:TM, so I went and seen it in theater 3 times. I still own a couple of t-shirts that still fit me to this day. Now 33, I only wish the show stayed on the air because it kept getting funnier each episode. But it ended in 1999, but was kept alive by the crew members of MST3K by starting their own productions, RiffTrax and Cinematic Titanic.
Besides from studying and getting my type of body behavior/humor from John Lithgow’s when he was on “3rd Rock from the Sun”, most of my style of comedy humor I tell comes from Mystery Science Theater 3000.
