Mike and the 'bots get terminal enchantment from Jack Frost (1965), a dimwitted Russo-Finnish children's film featuring an old elf with a mushroom on his head, a witch whose answer to everything is sitting on a shovel, and the magical title character who has the power to reverse film. Meanwhile, Michael Nelson is Lord of the Dance. Professor Bobo and Observer fight over who is in charge. Observer discovers that even without a body, he smells bad. Crow hires Yakof Smirnoff and a guy named Earl Torgeson to lecture about the film. Crow becomes a bear. Servo puts on a babushka in a hopeless attempt to be adorable. Pearl nominates Dunston Checks In (1996) as the greatest ape movie ever. Written by J. Spurlin

Jack Frost is another funny episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000"
20 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Okay, I just finished watching this American-dubbed version of the Russian-Finnish Jack Frost on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" on YouTube. The girl playing Nastenka was quite beautiful and is obviously the "Cinderella" character here but I thought this film was about Jack Frost, you know, the title character who doesn't even appear until the movie's almost over? Good thing Mike and the 'bots are there to make fun of every boring and/or confusing scene that occurs. Too many riffs to mention here but there were several references to the "It's" character on "Monty Python's Flying Circus" including when we see a bunch of bearded men, "...a bunch of Michael Palin impersonators!" LOL! There's also a Yogi Bear reference concerning a bear character ("...pic-nic basket.") and one of three famous fictional pigs ("Wilbur! Gordy! Babe!") when we see three such-looking animals being led on a leash. Also loved hearing Mike imitate the "Benny Hill Show" theme when trees start running in under-cranked speed. The film itself actually looked beautiful (when it didn't get blurry) so I'm thinking the original unedited version in its native language was probably artistically superior but this American-dubbed one does seem cheesy much of the time. Not all of the riffs were hilarious but there weren't too much dead spots either so, once again, this was another nearly excellent episode of "MST3K".
