Teaser for “The Frank”

THE FRANK is a short film starring Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank) and Trace Beaulieu (Dr. Forrester, Crow T. Robot) from the Emmy nominated and Peabody Award-winning cult hit show Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The short is a music video about an evil Dr. Frankenstein-type scientist and his man’s man butler, Uncle Gruber, played by Dave (Gruber) Allen from FREAKS AND GEEEKS as they construct a brand new FRANK.

The result is, of course, singing and dancing. It’s Busby Berkeley meets Jack Davis.

THE FRANK also brings together many cast members of MST3K, including Bill Corbett (Brain Guy, and Crow T. Robot), Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester, Magic Voice, and other characters), and a few surprises.

This spot was created for the London premiere of THE FRANK

  2. Tarantulas says:

    It also features, Bill, Mary Jo, Beez, Josh, and lots of different friends of the show!

    They showed this at the last Cinematic Titanic shows. Pretty cute. “Do the Frank! Eeeuuuk-uueee!”


  4. maclen says:

    I especially liked this bit…”Special London premiere of the “The Frank”. Starring Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu.”


  5. Captn Ross Hagen says:

    Will the be on DVD or for down load?


  6. hellokittee says:

    Got to see this at the last Cinematic Titanic show in San Francisco. Something any big MST fan would enjoy. They didn’t mention if it would be available for people to watch on DVD or download or anything like that however…


  7. @horrordad says:

    Always want to ask this, especially after seeing this short at CT shows:

    “Eeeuuuk-uueee!” is basically Frank’s impersonation of a wacky retro-crooner, right?

    If not, what the hell is it?!


  8. Depressing Aunt says:

    Pray tell, what is Sci-Fi London? Is it the more sensibly spelled version of our SyFy channel? Is it a museum? I want to go to London and see Large Bob and the the Frank!


  9. Cheapskate Crow says:

    Saw this in San Francisco so how can this be a premiere? And @horrordad I always thought Eyukayee was an expression of joy. I asked him about how he came up with it after a CT show once and he said he was on drugs, which I have since learned is probably not true since I gather he has been sober for many years.


  10. Luther Heggs aka Number 6 says:

    @9 I believe he was referring to drugs other people were on and he was on those people (literally sitting on those people)and he omitted that detail.
