MST3K on CBS Morning. The Subject: GODZILLA

This little video is from 1998 and was shown as (probably) a way to attract viewers to the new film from CBS. Clips are shown and questions are answered by who other than Mike, Crow and Tom Servo! I’ve never seen this footage before and I loved seeing it.

So which upcoming Godzilla Blu-ray/DVD re-release are YOU most looking forward to? Personally I can’t wait to get KING KONG ESCAPES in high-definition, regardless of it only being the US version only. It’s one of my very favourite Toho kaiju films.
