Mystery Science Theater 3000 - MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000/COM/1989-96/SCI/1997-99 was one of cable's hottest cult hits of the 1990s.

Joel Robinson, Crow and Tom Servo - MYSTERY SCIENCE TEATER 3000

Lab technician Joel Robinson (played by Joel Hodgson) was shot into space to the Satellite of Love by mad scientists and forced to watch dreadful "B" movies with his friends, robot Tom Servo (voice of Kevin Murphy) and another robot named Crow T. (voice of Trace Beaulieu).

Tom's body consisted of bits of an old bubble-gum machine, a penny bank and a flashlight. Crow's body was constructed from a Lacrosse face mask, a plastic bowling pin and a soap dish.

The robot's parts reflected the same poor quality of the movies shown on the program (for instance, Robots vs. the Aztec Mummy (1959), and The Giant Spider Invasion (1975).

Seen as silhouettes at the bottom right of the screen, these three space castaways spoofed the movies with a rapid fire delivery of hip, irreverent one-liners.
