"That's something that I feel like I learned from Mystery Science Theater, I felt like they were always dropping... either references to a joke they had already made that was totally exclusive to the show, or making some weird reference to a commercial from the late '70s or something, that... they knew that only about 10 people were gonna get, but they made that joke anyway, so it was just sort of like... 'This is for you 10 dudes that're gonna like this joke.'" — Matt Chapman, Late Nite JengaJam Interview - 4 Oct 2007

Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a cult TV show that ran from 1989 to 1999 on Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel. The main premise of the show is a man is trapped in space by an evil scientist and shown the "worst movies they can find." To keep sane, he has two robot companions and talk back to the movie. The show has proven to be influential, The Brothers Chaps occasionally reference the show.


  • A Jorb Well DoneTom Servo can be seen in silhouette, similar to the way he appears during the movie portion of the show.
  • Personal Favorites — Coach Z says, "I'm a blade man, man", a reference to the riff of Santa Claus Versus the Martians: "Santa's gonna cut you, man. Santa's a blade man, man!"
  • Random toon — Nicknamed Rando, which is a running gag in the feature film version's end credits.
