HO - HO - HO, kids! Let’s keep the holiday magic RO - HO - HO - HO - LLING with a festive watch party featuring the 1964 classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and humble but cheerful bookkeeper Joel Robinson Cratchit.
Watch along with us in the Gizmoplex:
…Or wherever else Santa drops MST episodes down your particular chimney. We’ll hit “Play” on the episode at 8:00 PM Eastern / 5:00 PM Pacific. If you join us past the start time, just fast-forward the episode to catch up - so if you’re 20 minutes late, pick up the episode at 20 minutes in and jump into the chat.
Please help yourself to some holiday punch and crock pot meatballs, and- you want to what? Oh, I don’t know…
Yay! This is a holiday favorite around my house. Since I am under the weather, and unable to attend the company Holiday party today, I will happily join the watch party. It’s gonna be way more fun than watching people I don’t like do stupid things.
Wait a minute, that sounds a lot like movie riffing…
This was on my rewatch list for last night, but I switched it with Santa Claus so that I could watch with everyone here tonight.
I’ve probably seen this about 30 times by now, including in the theater in 1964.
It was part of Iconfest (Iconathon? I can’t remember what they call it) at our local Drive In this summer. The Blob, Night of the Living Dead, and Little Shop of Horrors were on the other screen that night, so that was our choice. Would be cool to see it on a big screen one day, though.
