Happy Thanksgiving/Turkey Day to all fellow Svengoolie SvenPals, MSTies of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” and all fellow classic/cult motion picture and TV aficionados everywhere from the author of “Silver Screen Reflections!”
An announcement was made recently on the official Mystery Science Theater 3000 site that the first nationwide touring production of MST3K will be brought to 29 major cities throughout the country.
