Santa Claus, by Howard Nemerov

Somewhere on his travels the strange Child
Picked up with this overstuffed confidence man,
Affection’s inverted thief, who climbs at night
Down chimneys, into dreams, with this world’s goods.
Bringing all the benevolence of money,
He teaches the innocent to want, thus keeps
Our fat world rolling. His prescribed costume,
White flannel beard, red belly of cotton waste,
Conceals the thinness of essential hunger,
An appetite that feeds on satisfaction;
Or, pregnant with possessions, he brings forth
Vanity and the void. His name itself
Is corrupted, and even Saint Nicholas, in his turn,
Gives off a faint and reminiscent stench,
The merest soupcon, of brimstone and the pit.
Now, at the season when the Child is born
To suffer for the world, suffer the world,
His bloated Other, jovial satellite
And sycophant, makes his appearance also
In a glitter of goodies, in a rock candy glare.
Played at the better stores by bums, for money,
This annual savior of the economy
Speaks in the parables of the dollar sign:
Suffer the little children to come to Him.
At Easter, he’s anonymous again,
Just one of the crowd lunching on Calvary.

And now for something... not quite the same... o_O

It turns out Terry Gilliam's animation work wasn't limited to Monty Python stuff...

So... did Bunny Rabbit and Mr. Moose just buy ping pong balls by the gross behind Captain Kangaroo's back?

C'mon down! I'll chew on a dog!

Oh my GOOAAUUGH! by notatracer
Remember The Great Space Coaster? Remember how the one guy had that little teeny tiny TV/video player and he'd show short films? This was one of them... I remember this one, though I never saw it in its entirety until now...

There were also a lot of shorts of "La Linea", that little big-nosed gibberish-speaking silhouette guy who would interact with the scenery (or lack thereof) and the hand holding the pencil that would bumble into the shot to draw something...

But one of the shorts I want to find again that I did see in its entirety was something called Happy Feet. No, no dancing penguins in this one. Instead, there seemed to be... a disembodied set of stick-figure legs... on the run from a bunch of spiders, a giant sentient baseball (uh, yeah) and a giant six-legged thing with one huge eye. At some point near the end, the film breaks and melts in the projector, and the characters interact with the blobby melty celluloid...

After MST3K...?
Kong? by cleolinda
A while back I posted the intro for Project Popcorn, an all but inexplicable Russian ripoff of the venerable Mystery Science Theater 3000. I might post it again since nobody said anything about it, but anyway.

Of course, the remnants of Best Brains have done MST-like things over the years... most notably Rifftrax (download rifftastic commentary for that Twilight DVD!). There was also Cinematic Titanic... and something called The Film Crew... which I think was actually shown on Showtime or something...

Not to mention the oddball local non-profit "tribute" called Mystery Spatula Theater 11...

Here's something, though...

The people behind this web video series, Incognito Cinema Warriors XP (or ICWXP for short) wear their MSTie influence on their sleeves, up to the point where they had a mad scientist villain who was named after the heroic scientist character of the oddball sequel TV series to the 1953 George Pal War of the Worlds film*. Of course, this show is not necessarily as family-friendly as MST3K...

*Mystery Science Theater 3000 has Dr. Clayton Forrester. Dr. Clayton Forrester was the hero scientist of the 1950s War of the Worlds. Incognito Cinema Warriors XP features Dr. Harrison Blackwood. Dr. Harrison Blackwood was the hero scientist of the War of the Worlds TV series...
