Maybe Bannon and Yarborough physical appearances resembled their radio voices, but poor Randall didn't and the radio show didn't want him in the movie because it might ruin what listeners imagined what Reggie looked like.
Whatever the cause, Tony Randall would have to wait about another ten years or say to get his movie fame,while Jim Bannon and Barton Yarborough would fade to nostalgic obscurity of what-ever-happened-to-land and answers to Trivial Pursuit Games.

During the Sci-Fi era, Best Brains found themselves more limited by the network: the pool of available films was smaller and they were required to use science fiction films as per the network's name and programming focus ,  and the USA Network executives managing the show wanted to see a story arc and had more demands on how the show should be produced.
The season 10 finale, Danger: Diabolik , premiered on August 8, , during which, in the show's narrative, Pearl Forrester sent the Satellite of Love out of orbit, with Mike and the 'bots escaping and taking up residence in an apartment near Milwaukee, where they continue to riff movies.
The shows later moved to off-network syndication. Starting in , Hodgson had been trying to bring back MST3K , spurred on by fan appreciation of the cast and crew 25 years since the show's premiere and the success of his Cinematic Titanic project. By , Hodgson was working closely with Shout! Factory , the distribution company handling the home media releases of MST3K , and completed negotiations with Mallon to buy the rights for MST3K for a seven-figure sum by August ,  enabling a Kickstarter campaign to fund the revival to move forward.
Hodgson believed that the revival would need a whole new cast, pointing out that the cast had completely turned over in the original series. Hodgson had met Ray while recording an episode of The Nerdist Podcast , and felt he would be a good fit. Hodgson felt it was important for Ray to have his say on who would play these parts, since it would help Ray be comfortable in the role.
Hodgson had seen Day's performance in shows like The Guild and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog , and felt she matched his idea for the character he had envisioned. However, Nelson and Beaulieu stated that they would not be involved with the MST3K revival;   Nelson said, "The brand does not belong to me, and I make and have made almost zero dollars off it since it stopped production in Factory would be "cutting [the former cast members] in, financially at least" on the profits from the series.
Laurence Erhardt in the second season of the Netflix revival. Hodgson aimed to follow in the pattern of what made for fan-favorite episodes from the original series, borrowing equally from the Joel and Mike eras; he noted there were about 30 episodes that he and fans universally agreed were the show's best, and expected to use these as templates as the basis of the new show. Additionally, while not required by the streaming format of Netflix, the new episodes include bumpers that would have wrapped around commercial breaks if shown on network television; Hodgson considered these breaks necessary as a "palate cleanser" as well as to support the narrative for Kinga attempting to commercialize on the MST3K brand.
The revival retains the live, handcrafted look from the original, a decision that Hodgson had to set down against others involved in production. Production for the new season began on January 4, , with movie selection and script writing. Factory was working to secure worldwide distribution rights for the others. Recording and most of the production was completed over September and October in Los Angeles on a very condensed schedule.
This also helped to simplify the process of recording the theater segments, since they then only needed to act out their parts. The 'bots were controlled by multiple puppeteers both in the theater and in skits; Yount and Vaughn used radio-controlled equipment to move the 'bots' mouths, while members from The Jim Henson Company helped with manipulating the bodies, allowing them to achieve effects they could not do in the series' original run such as having Crow appear to walk on his own.
All skits for the episodes were completed within a single day, which did not allow them for doing multiple takes unless necessary. Campaign backers at higher tiers were able to see the first episode at limited "Red Carpet Kickstarter Screening" events shown in a few theaters during February and March Donna St.
Phibes, a "B-movie monster conservationist" who works with the Mads. Hodgson had been trying to also bring back both Beaulieu and Conniff for this season, but could not work out the logistics in time. The 12th season was broadcast on Netflix on Thanksgiving aka "Turkey Day", November 22, , which coincided with the show's 30th anniversary. In November , Hodgson confirmed to Kickstarter backers that the show would not return for a third season on Netflix, but that he would be looking into alternative outlets to carry the show on.
The two seasons made for Netflix will remain on the service. None of the KTMA episodes were rerun nationally or have been released onto home video, primarily due to rights issues.
For many years, the first three KTMA episodes were considered to be "missing episodes" , as no fan copies are known to exist, but master copies of all these episodes still exist according to Mallon.
The credits in the first four seasons on Comedy Central included the phrase "Keep circulating the tapes" to encourage fans to share VHS tapings they made with others as Comedy Central was not widely distributed then , despite the questionable copyright practice.
Though the phrase was removed from the credits due to legal reasons, the concept of "keep circulating the tapes" was held by the show's fans to continue to help introduce others to the show following its broadcast run.
An annual event in the Comedy Central era was the Turkey Day marathon that ran on or near the Thanksgiving holiday. The marathon would show between six and twelve rebroadcasts of episodes, often with new material between the episodes from the cast and crew. Following its acquisition of the series rights, Shout! Factory has streamed Turkey Day marathons on Thanksgiving since , broadcasting six of the MST3K episodes and wrapped with introductions from Hodgson alongside other cast members at times.
Home video releases of MST3K episodes are complicated by the licensing rights of the featured film and any shorts, and as such many of the nationally televised episodes have not yet been released onto home video. Through the current distributor, Shout! Factory , over of the films have been cleared for home media distribution.
Original home media releases were issued by Rhino Entertainment , initially starting with single disc releases before switching to semi-regular four-episode volume sets. In , 80 episodes of the show were made available for purchase or rental on the video streaming site Vimeo.
In , the show's staff selected 30 episodes to split into 60 one-hour segments for The Mystery Science Theater Hour. The repackaged series' first-run airings of these half-shows ran from November to July Reruns continued through December , and it was syndicated to local stations from September to September , allowing stations to run the series in a one-hour slot, or the original two hour version.
The show premiered on IFC on January 7, In , the book, The Amazing Colossal Episode Guide written by many of the cast members , was released, which contained a synopsis for every episode from seasons one through six, and even included some behind-the-scenes stories as well. In it, Murphy related two tales about celebrity reactions he encountered. In one, the cast went to a taping of Dennis Miller 's eponymous show ; when they were brought backstage to meet Miller, the comedian proceeded to criticize the MST3K cast for their choice of movie to mock in the then-recent episode "Space Travelers" a re-branded version of the Oscar-winning film Marooned.
When he had mentioned the show and its premise to Vonnegut, the author suggested that even people who work hard on bad films deserve some respect. Murphy then invited Vonnegut to dine with his group, which Vonnegut declined, claiming that he had other plans.
When Murphy and friends ate later that night, he saw Vonnegut dining alone in the same restaurant, and remarked that he had been "faced Dark Horse Comics announced on February 16, that it had planned a MST3K comic book series that was set for initial release in The first comic was released on September 12, and it focuses on Jonah and the Bots trying to get out of comics while trying to save Crow when he starts to become a monster in the pages of Horrific.

Vaughn was unavailable to perform Servo due to the birth of his child and the role was covered by Tim Ryder. Hodgson and Ray also toured in late as part of a 30th anniversary of MST3K in a similar format to the tour. Hodgson reprised the role of Joel Robinson and riffed movies alongside Ray and the bots during these shows. Rebecca Hanson also joined in her role as Synthia as the host of the show. During the tour, Hodgson announced that Deanna Rooney will be joining the cast in the twelfth season as a new "Mad" working with Kinga and Max.
Emily Marsh also features in the tour as the new character Crenshaw. In , during promotion for the film, Nelson and the bots were interviewed in-character on MTV , and seen in silhouettes heckling footage from MTV News featuring the band Radiohead.
