Johnny at the Fair is one of my favorite shorts with some of the most hilariously dark riffs: “Johnny feels dark hands pressing him onward. The voices in his head start to get meaner.”

This is great movie. But it also comes with one of my favorite shirts of all time, "Johnny at the fair"😆

Sinister will win, it’s Ed Wood. IMO this is the better ep. The short’s funnier, the movie’s watchable and has a plot, the riffs are on point. But hey, Ed Wood and all. I am bugged!

One time after watching this episode, I became curious enough to try looking up Merritt Stone on IMDb. I was barely able to find anything about him O_o

I haven’t seen either of these episodes, but of the two I would rather see Rebel Set. Sinister Urges sounds like the movie Touch of Satan ripped off and remade.

Both episodes are examples of the short tail wagging the movie dog, but I remember the riffing keeping up somewhat during Rebel Set as opposed to Sinister Urge.

For the Clean and Neat short. It is my favorite of the two shorts. I'm not really a big fan of either ot the experiments' movies. They are ok, but their shorts are better.

This is a tough call, but I think this is the best of the Ed Wood episodes (thanks to its bizarre take on the "smut picture" racket). That being said, I think "Johnny at the Fair" a funnier short.

Love Prince of Space, but 505 is peak MST3K. Old-school style riff to be sure, but the warmth of the early years is in full bloom on this one with A+ sketches and even an in-theater stunt. Also, weird movie.
