Tonight, at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, join us in the Kingadome for the premiere of a BRAND NEW SHORT, featuring our beloved Joel Robinson, “Sleep for Health!”
Then, for this MEGA MONSTER MONTH tribute episode, giant turtle Gamera and inexplicably knife-headed Guiron meet on the field of battle, while two plucky kids fight off creepy aliens who want to eat their brains, in GAMERA VS GUIRON.
Then, stick around for a special screening of “So Happy Together: A Look Back At MST3K and Gamera,” a documentary featurette originally included in the Gamera DVD set.
Please note: the JACKBOX SHOWDOWN that was announced to follow this tribute show has been rescheduled, and will now be a standalone event on either JULY 26 or JULY 27. Your ticket for this event will also give you access to the live showdown!
Finally, your preshow question: why are we worried about murder hornets when there are train-hopping giant meningitis snails invading?? Discuss.
Tonight, we ALL believe in Gamera.
Gamera: Really Neat!
Meningitis Snails: Not So Much!
Why can’t we be invaded by some of these instead? And maybe a herd of Pushmi-Pullyus?
@Lesley just a heads up to pass to @ivan, people are reporting that Crow is telling them they don’t have a ticket. Not sure if something needs to be reset on the Virtual Theater side or not.

So excited for a new big tribute and all the extras included! Let’s rock!
Tonight it’s a whole lotta turtles!
Reload and try it now? Should be working!
Danny Husk to the rescue!
Can confirm: It works now. Thanks!
When I first heard of Gamera, I thought: “wait. I thought the only turtle kids love was this thing.”
If I could make a request for the Jackbox livestream: could it be July 27? Mary Jo Pehl has a new episode of the Mary Jo Pehl Show on July 26.
We don’t want conflicting MSTie events.
We are aware and yes, we’re aiming for the 27th if possible! Thanks for mentioning it, though.
Anybody remember that one scene where the kids ate and drank the donuts and miluk?
I can get into the Kingadome now as well, w00t!
Maddest props to Ivan and company for making it happen!
While we wait, how about some delicious Mock Turtle Soup? (shared this on YouTube but it has a better shot at post posterity here)
