    I look forward to a complete, uncut version of Santa Claus, which I’m sure will be much more coherent. More senile Merlin!

    aww, I was kinda hoping for the Ice Cream Bunny, I’d love to see Bill do Hurr, Hurr, Hurr, live. That’s cool about National Geographic though

    Not as excited about Santa Claus, although maybe it’s time to introduce my nephews to Rifftrax, but looking forward to more Riff Off.

    I’ve always considered Santa Claus to be the top MST3K-related Christmas-related production. I suppose most others prefer SCCtM, but the K. Gordon Murray movie just has so much absurdity that it keeps me entertained regardless of how good the riffs are.

    We’ll also get to see Vulcan (the Roman god, not the Planet of Space Elves).

    Is “Santa Claus” short enough that they could include some extra Christmas shorts with it? After that crazy one from last year with the annoying Jack-In-The-Box and the random ice queen, I want to see what else Rifftrax has in the vault.

    Was kind of hoping for something new that we haven’t seen before. Not to say that I won’t happily be forking over my $12 to go see it!

    Wiki sez the K. Gordon cut runs 94 minutes, so that leaves time for at least one short.

    This one will be in Nashville. Us Kickstarters got an email a few hours before the Q&A.

    I hope this is so successful for them that they decide to tackle another K. Gordon Murray movie that desperately needs the Rifftrax treatment … “Little Red Riding Hood and the Monsters”:

    I am holding on to a strong hope that this batch of Total Riff Off will include a little bit of Brain Games. That show is VERY riffable.
