My question is in the Turkey Day marathons I remember there being a dirty hobo looking guy with a cigar. Was that supposed to be Torgo?
Secondly I’m going to profess my love for “Bobo” and “Brain Guy”
Honestly I think Kevin & Bill blew these roles outta the park!!!
I think it’s “Prince of Space” ((probably my new favorite)) where the skit at the beginning sees Bobo go into a black hole so Pearl and Brain Guy won’t see him as he is tethered outside as he had to “go” LOL!!
I like TV’s Frank also but have to hand it to these 2!
Lastly TV’s Son of TV’s Frank is great!
Who’s your favorite second banana and why?
The dirty hobo guy is Ortega from The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed Up Zombies
Ortega kind of became the Sci-Fi era Torgo.
And the Public Pearl Broadcasting fundraiser telephone bank!
As played by Paul Chaplin!
To quote Mr. B Natural in regards to Second Bananas: “They’re members of my family, boy! I love 'em all!”
Thank you @MichaelRobertson !
It’s just been in the back of my head for years now.
And he has a catering business, though he does tend to ash in the food.
If you think about it, the PPB fundraiser telethon was the MST3k Kickstarter before there was an MST3k Kickstarter.
I’d sure love me a tote bag.
Of course! We have so much stuff to tote!
As for me, I’d say Frank. For his ultimate Second Banana song, “If Chauffeurs Ruled The World.”
How much of Mike’s money do you need?
I’m gonna go with TV’s Frank because Frank Conniff crafted such a memorably silly and enjoyable character. Nostalgia plays into this a lot, because the first few episodes I discovered were all TV’s Frank episodes.
But I enjoy them all. There isn’t a second banana in the MST3K bunch that I don’t like. My second pick, though? Probably Bill Corbett as Brain Guy.
I’ll thank you not to quote Mr B Natural again. I have to shower now. Ick. shudder rocking back and forth
Have to go with TV’s Frank too. He’s got a radio station named after him, after all!
Which has BROOKS AND DUNN.
… Brooks and Dunn?
