Fans of Mystery Science Theater may remember the Santa Claus Conquers the Martians episode from the third season, often considered one of the best in the series. Later on after Joel left, Mike got to do his own Christmas episode about Santa Claus, a movie from 1959 that involves the devil sending a henchmen named Pitch to destroy Christmas. Oh and also Merlin makes his way into the plot somehow.
If you haven’t been to a Rifftrax in a theater it’s a real blast and it’s live so you really never know what will happen. While it may not be quite the same as seeing Tom Servo and Crow’s silhouettes it’s still a lot of fun.
And if you act soon, you have a chance to win free tickets from WXRY. All you have to do is join their mailing list and you’ll be entered to win a pair of tickets.
