Mystery Fandom Theater 3000 was put together by some friends who loved the show and wanted to do something along those lines themselves. They hewed pretty closely to the original, in that they remade the Mike-era Comedy Central opening, complete with its audio and a few clips taken directly from it, but with different people playing the roles. The movie is extremely bad: it turns out that those Santa's Enchanted Village shorts with Stinky the Skunk and The Ferocious Wolf, that Rifftrax riffed in Santa's Village of Madness, have a secret backstory with those two characters! Come see the foundation of the K. Gordon Murray Cinematic Universe! [more inside]
Mystery Science Theater 3000: SANTA CLAUS Rewatch Season 5, Ep 21
Re-rewatch! As any child knows, Santa Claus lives in a castle in the sky high above the North Pole, the center of a surveillance network that spans the globe. Living with him is Merlin and an international horde of kids who sing and help him make toys. But the forces of darkness no like this, and so Satan sends his lieutenant Pitch to thwart his gift-giving journey, threatening the lactose-intolerant demon with eating ice cream should he fail.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: SANTA CLAUS Season 5, Ep 21
"An Enchanting World of Make-Believe!" All the aspects of Santa Claus that have enchanted kids for centuries are here: his floating palace high above the North Pole, his working relationship with Merlin the Wizard, his magical surveillance equipment, the many kids he holds captive in his singing work-dungeon, and his unending battle against the forces of hell. Merry Christmas! The second of the two MST3K Christmas episodes, and if anything even better than the first one. Santa Claus, made to give Mexican children their own version of the myth, is a truly disturbing movie. I say it does have its merits: the story of poor Lupita and her family is saddening. But don't worry, there's plenty of madness on display too, and the riffing is excellent. One of the best episodes. YouTube (1h33m) Premiered Christmas Eve, 1993. [more inside]
