A man and two robots trapped on an Earth-orbiting space station are forced to watch the worst movies ever conceived

With the help of the bots (Crow T. Robot & Tom Servo) Joel Robinson (Seasons KTMA, 1-5) & Mike Nelson (Seasons 5-10) survived the horrid movies, educational shorts, and movie serials that were sent by the evil Forrester family (Dr. Clayton Forrester on seasons KTMA, Seasons 1-7 & Pearl Forrester Seasons 7-10) with the help of such sidekicks as TV's Frank, Observer/Brain Guy, and Professor Bobo. The end result gives the creation of one of the best and most creative shows on television. They also had a feature film in 1996 entitled Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. They also have adventures & fun with time travel, aliens, inventions and much more over many years filled with humor and pop culture.

The show started as a cable access program on KTMA and then was picked up by Comedy Central (Known as The Comedy Channel in the early years). The final seasons were aired on the Sci-Fi Channel.

Many films were made fun over the years staring a lot of young & popular talents including Adam West, Tia Carrere, Raul Julia, Lee Van Cleef, Demi Moore and many more.
