My VIP pick from Starcrash is the cheesy Southern-accented robot. He’s delightfully punchable! (but don’t punch robots, they’re made of metal)

Have there been any Torgo levels of MVP during these past 3 season, or even an unheralded MVP like Mikey (Teen-Age Strangler)? Lets see.

Not using what’s been named… from season 11

  • Danny McKee from Time Travelers - actor Steve Franken also was in Avalanche, so he could be a supporting MVP candidate (along with other repeat episode actors like Caroline Munroe and their characters)
  • Jim, our laughing Indian from Cry Wilderness
  • I’d also consider the Janitor in Reptilicus, though he’s not at 100% power without his song (seen only in the foreign version)
  • But if talking chimps count, I’ll chose Alexander the Great

Season 12

  • Dancing green elf in The Day Time Ended (and I like Roon, but yeah, I’d probably go along with Bull Butter man, played by the esteemed, though slumming it, Graham Green)

Season 13 - you’ve named a lot of the good ones (East Eddie, Perico) but who else is there?

  • “Cab, Mister?” from the Bubble
  • The cast of Demon Squad (how can I select just one?)
  • The doodad lady, The Masks own Mrs. Kelly
  • Bloodthirsty Susan in Gamera vs. Jiger

I’m still taking Torgo as the overall MVP of MST3K, but I think, after more opinions come in, maybe we could put together a poll of all the named candidates for MVP of season 11, then 12, then 13… and finally take the winners and have a Nu-MST MVP-off.

EDIT: Yeah, for some reason my eyes scrambled, and I saw MVP instead of VIP, but it’s just about the same. So, I’ll stick with the post as is.

Outside of the principals, Mr Fifty Shades of Beige was the standout of that movie.

Shout-Out to Mrs. Kelly from The Mask. The word “Doodads” has seen a renaissance in this household and we’re all the better for it.

I’d like to think that Doctor Mordrid has something like that in the big bad Kabal. I’m always game for an amusing villain, and Brian Thompson delivers big time as Kabal.

That’s also why I would throw nods to Mooney from The Beatniks, Troxartas from Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell, and Baba Yaga from Jack Frost as key figures of their respective movies.

There are a couple particular actors- not characters- that I would brand VIPs. Tor Johnson and Doug McLure come to mind. And Joe Don Baker, for more infamous reasons.
