Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Scrapbook

Here is the MST3K Video Scrapbook - a 96 minute long behind the scenes/clip show which was originally released on VHS by Best Brains in 1995. I don't believe it's ever been aired on TV and hasn't been put on any of the official DVDs yet. Plus that VHS is out of print so I think the only way to actually see this thing is to find it on the interweb somewhere.

The file is split over 5 parts totaling about 405 MB. Despite the smaller file size, this actually runs about the length on an episode of the show. The quality is just a little lower than the usual episodes I've posted. It's still very watchable and given the amount of rare footage contained within I'd say it's a must see video for any fans of the show.

Things to look for:

  • The filming of the multi-doored corridor to the theater shot - a shot which they nailed on the second try.
  • Thanksgiving with the Molemen
  • Footage from the long lost pilot episode in which Joel viewed The Green Slime. (No copy of the pilot (and the three episodes that followed) has ever turned up. I guess nobody was home to record those first few shows.)
  • Footage from the MST3K Conventio-Con and ExpoFest-a-Rama from 1994
  • Pre-Voice Tom Servo (or Beeper, if you will) - complete with fishbowl(?) cranium.
  • Kevin and Trace partaking in the actual building of the set
  • The Chiropractic Helmet
  • Stand-Up With Joel
  • Bald-cap Mike
  • Bevel Leveling Level Bevels

Oh my gosh I remember when this aired! It was hilarious! It took me forever to realize that was Mike Nelson in all the make-up.
