While in space Joel builds wacky robot sidekicks Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot to help him withstand an onslaught of grade 'Z' movies that the mad scientists force him to watch. Written by

The lyrics to the opening theme were changed four times during the show's eleven-year run, mostly to accommodate story changes required when key cast members left. See more »
Throughout the series, several references are made to the fact that the robots' arms don't work. Many times though, they're indicated as having completed projects requiring working arms or performing deeds where their arms are moving. See more »
The greatest thing ever to hit the face of the Earth!
If there is ever a show greater than this, it'll be the day I die. This TV show is the greatest achievement of the human race, and a true classic. I'm talking of MST3K, of course! No other show on television can possibly hope to be as funny or as original as this all time legend. I was very sad when it went off the air in 1999. It actually hurt to record it, but it had to be done as a full time Mystie. Never will there ever be a show as great as this wonderful comedy.
