20 MST3k B-Movie Backgrounds

In a Not Too Distant Future

We’re in deep love with the Satellite of Love, or SOL for short.

Deeper still is our appreciation for the cult classic that kept the satellite in orbit, Mystery Science Theatre 3000. The show features a human passenger stranded in space with his plucky robot sidekicks, Tom Servo, Gypsie, and Crow T. Robot (who is sometimes referred to as “Art” by one of the show’s antagonists, Pearl Forrester).

Together, the crew is held captive by the Forresters, a mad scientist mother-son duo, who subject the bots and sole human prisoner to horrible cinematic abominations best left untouched. Known as MST3k to its most die-hard fans, appropriately named MSTies (pronounced MIS-teez), the gang aboard the SOL had a strong 11-year run — spanning 197 episodes, 3 TV stations, several casting changes, and a feature film on the silver screen.

Through the comedic genius of MST3k’s creator, Joel Hodgson, new life was given to so many b(ad) movies that the world completely forgot. More than 15 years after the show’s cancellation, we present an eclectic collection of posters plucked from some of our most cherished episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Not surprising, the posters are often more compelling than the films they advertise.
