RIP Rip Taylor

BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF–Rip Taylor, (aka Charles Elmer Taylor Jr.) the exuberant comedian whose zany shtick and over-the-top delivery made him a television and nightclub mainstay for more than six decades, has died. He was 84.

MSTies will recall that Joel and the bots devoted a whole host segment to him in episode 418- ATTACK OF THE THE EYE CREATURES.

The Hollywood Reporter has a nice remembrance.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

Weekend Discussion Thread: Did They Find It?

Alert and frequent submitter Duke of Puddles turns up again:

If memory serves, the premise of the CC era and the MST3k Movie was that Dr, F was looking for the worst movie ever to use for his world domination scheme. Question: did he find it before the whole end of season 7? and if so, in your opinion which one was it? For me: yes with Castle of Fu Manchu.

This isn’t really about the worst movie the Mads sent, but it’s more about: what movie, shown by the Mads or not, is THE movie that will allow them to take over the world.

Me? I’m going with “The Way We Were.”

You?

Don’t Let Duke of Puddles have ALL the fun! Keep sending those WDT suggestions.

Also, FYI- I tentatively plan to begin posting official season 12 episode guide pages once a week beginning Oct. 24. These plans may change (like, if I get a job), but that’s the plan right now.
