Mystery Science Theater 3000, Ep. 821: Time Chasers
This was always one of my favorite Mike sketches…probably because it feels like a Joel sketch, y'know? I just love the idea of the hero and the villain just chillin’ and shootin’ the shit, sharing a mug of coffee in the infinite vacuum of space…
In 1967, Pearl Bailey & Cab Calloway headlined an all-black cast version of the musical on Broadway where it played to sold-out houses. Bailey was given a special Tony Award for her performance and RCA released a second original cast album featuring the performers.
We couldn’t just go through this series without having a few Mad
Scientists! Hehehe. This is Pearl Forrester (played by Mary Jo Pehl)
from Mystery Science Theater 3000– probably my favorite show ever. If
you want to make quick friends with me just be a fellow fan of this
works to rule the world through mad science while torturing people with
bad movies on the side. Surprisingly, I ended up liking Pearl even more
than Dr. Forrester. A+ choice to keep her on as the main villain once

Since I drew Pearl Forrester (Mystery Science Theater 3000) for my
little women of science series, why not also throw in 11th season
newcomer, Kinga Forrester! Having been a backer for their reboot
kickstarter, I got to view the first new episode early with my sister
and we loved it! Can’t wait to watch more. *.*
Dewey: Oh yeah, back in my internship at Gizmonics Institute. You probably haven’t heard of them, they went defunct as of recently. Next Sunday, AD, I think.
Dewey: See, these mad scientists who worked on floor Deep 13 were working on an experiment to take over the world by playing the worst movies ever made to drive the populous mad. They needed a test subject, so they kept me prisoner on a satellite and beamed up a bad movie for me to watch about every week.
Dewey: Oh, but I was crafty. I built some robots to keep me company. Some to run the higher functions of the ship, but others were my buddies who kept me sane from the experiments.
Dewey: Oh, I can still remember the memories…
Buck: Dad, for the last time, you were not stranded in space.
