We've already covered the original Poopie! release, the bloopers tape. Now, it's The MST Scrapbook, which was both a behind-the-scenes look at the show as well as a collection of clips from the beginnings of MST3K.
Many of the clips from the KTMA season are from shows I've already seen. But, there were a couple of clips from the "lost" episodes. There are also lots of clips from other KTMA episodes, but we've seen those. However, that's because of the Fan Copies you can find at Websites -- such as MST3KVideos.com -- allow you to see those episodes.
|These clips from the "lost" episodes...||...are all we can see.|
There are also excerpts from the sales tape presented to The Comedy Channel that helped them decide to pick up the show for national broadcast. And, we are treated to the building of the new sets for when the show went national.
|Crow. Or parts of Crow.||Building Deep 13.|
|Kevin and Trace operate Servo and Crow on the SOL bridge.||Trace/Crow, Joel, & Kevin/Servo riff a movie.|
|The first Turkey Day Marathon.||Toolmaster Jeff Maynard.|
I could take those, take all the episodes that aired, and have my very own 30-hour marathon (although it would only run about 22½ hours) I could watch...
|A Comedy Central commercial from 1992.||A Joke... by Ingmar Bergman, from 1994.|
The MST Scrapbook is interesting to watch ... for most of the tape. The 16-minute segment from the 1994 ConventionCon was ... heck, I'll just say it bored me. But, for most of the Scrapbook, it was fun.
