MST3K: The Day The Earth Froze

Get this MST3K Episode!

Please choose a format above.

The good people of Kalevala have everything they need, so of course they want more. They want a SAMPO, a magical machine that will give them gold! And salt! And… flour?  

But all is not golden muffins in Kalevala, as a horrible witch resembling Strom Thurmond plagues the  good Kalevalans, threatening to freeze the earth on Day the Earth Froze Day. Who can save them? Humble Lemminkäinen, a hero who pretty much fails at every turn. 

Witness fantastical feats such as plowing, sheep shearing, feather plucking and log riding! And logging! Does this have anything to do with freezing the earth in any way? Who cares. Sampo! Sampo!

Join Joel, Servo, and Crow as they put on their best Kromers and pacs for The Day The Earth Froze!
