Are the "live-action" puppet movies (Mysterons, etc) on MST at all related to the Thunderbirds show from the mid-60s?

Are these two marionette movies on the early MST3K shows (Revenge of the Mysterons & Invaders of the Deep (?? is that the title?) at all related to those 1965-era THUNDERBIRDS shows? It really looks like it (e.g., if you want to know what I mean, there's a 35 min. documentary on this on You Tube: I guess some people are going to do an "updated" version of the Thunderbirds stuff. But, really, if you saw the doc on YT & then saw these movies on MST, you'd understand why I'm curious!! Anyone out there know about any possible connections? Right-o.

1. The door-to-door salesman's real problem is that he couldn't bring his product to even the fifth house on the street. It was only a four-door car.

2. Lobo takes several shots point blank and keeps advancing. When he turns around, there's no sign of a bullet hole. What's he made of?

3. Then Dr. I Can't Believe It's Not Bela Legosiā„¢ drops a glass jar on his head, and he's down for the count?

4. That is one massive, fiery mushroom cloud. You'd need a multi-megaton explosion to get a cloud like that. How does it not wipe out everything within a mile? And how do you get an octopus of unusual size (though there are larger squid) to blow up like that?

How lame!! At least you can watch this one in the MST season THREE, #310. I personally like that sort of "proto-season" (the "KTMA" episodes, hence the "Season K") as well as the 1st season, when Josh (or "J. Elvis" as he's known by these days) did Tom Servo's voice. I like Murphy a lot too but there's just something about that voice that Josh did that sort of spiced it up a bit. (Can't remember when Kevin started doing the voice; was it after "Larry Earhardt" left the show for good, replaced by TV's Frank? or was it while Josh was still Dr F's "sidekick"?

I'm Surprised that no one has tried to Reboot or Remake MST3K. And I hope that no one does. Or has someone already?


Who is that voice in the DC-IL plane scene?

Right at 52:00 up to about 52:15 or so, when Peter Graves & the military brass guy are on the plane from DC to IL the pilot suddenly gets on the intercom-thing & tells him that they can't land at Paxton cuz of giant locusts in the way so he says to land in Chicago...anyway, I can't quite place it at the moment but that voice (we never do see who this pilot is; the plane scene is probably less than a minute). But I know that voice from somewhere: it sounds like maybe an announcer from something familiar from the 50s or 60s. Anyone else recognize that voice?

Rondo "The Brute Man" Hatten played basically this same role in an old Sherlock Holmes movie (the ones that had Basil Rathbone as Holmes), except that instead of a bitter, "deformed" ex-collegiate football star he plays this "back-breaking" muscle for some jewel thief or whatnot that Holmes is tracking down. I guess there must've been a thing for "back-breakers" as the "bad guy" in movies for a couple minutes about 60-70 years ago.

When Dr. Forrester calls Joel "Pink Boy", is that a subgenius reference?

What does Crow say at 2:17? And what's the joke? I don't get it, and I've tried looking it up but I guess I'm spelling it wrong.

Um...it seems as if Joel doesn't know what "abhor" means (hint: it isn't a synonym for "implore")

RE: the 1st couple of seasons of MST3K (& yes, I include the so-callled "K" season ("K" y, so MST3K got its start on KTMA, in Minneapolis. Anyway, my point is that although TV's Frank was a good sidekick for Dr Forrester & had his own endearing personality, I actually thought Josh (now going by "J. Elvis") Weinstein was kind of funny. I don't know why so many people are down on him. And, re the dynamic between "Larry Earhardt" & "Dr. C Forrester" was a different one than the one w/Dr F & TV's Frank; though I don't think I could say that one was better than the other. I liked them both a lot. Anyway, while Frank was more of a true sidekick, a sort of whipping post for Clay & had his own, subtle wit & kooky humor, I also enjoyed Josh's smarmy-satire style & the way he & Clay were on more equal terms than Dr. F & Frank, though, through it all (except maybe in that 1st KTMA season, when the show is still "under construction" so to speak & the 2 "mads" were not the personae they came to be, especially Dr F (in fact, when they were working at the "Satellite Loading Bay" (according to the theme song) Clay had a totally different outfit & didn't wear the trademark specs. But in Season 1 & 2 (and 3 too, but it was not as great as the 1st 2 + "season 'k'". One of the things I enjoyed about those days was the more "minimalistic" (and I don't mean in an art kind of way but as a matter of style) of "Dr F" & "Larry Earhardt" (Trace & Josh). Also, unlike many, it seems, I liked the 2nd Servo voice- after the higher pitched one stopped after about 3 or 4 episodes or maybe more, can't recall 100%. But when Josh was doing Servo's voice, the deeper one, it also had more of a deadpan action to it.

This makes an excellent theater-style Double Feature with my ~favorite~ 'truck-driving movie', the French epic of Venezuela "The Evil That Men Do" (some may have seen the Freidkin re-make 'Sorcerer', with Roy Scheider and a pair of deuce-and-a-halfs). They carry two truckloads (since they'll be lucky if ~one~ makes it) of unstable, 'sweating' nitroglycerin across the cordillera to put out a raging oil-derrick fire....the other side of the triumphant 'Creole Oil' story. Get ready for subtitles in the original, though (unless you're fluent at French).
