Shorts-Tacular Shorts-Stravaganza

Instructional shorts are no longer just the things that you were forced to watch in silence by hungover substitute teachers! Now they’re a foundation for hilarity when Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy, of Mystery Science Theater 3000® and® team up to heckle them with their signature running commentary!

Spanning some of the blandest & fear-ridden decades in American history, this latest collection of 10 shorts clocks in with over 120 minutes of laughs! The twin horrors of Plaid and Clowns meet in If Mirrors Could Speak! No concept is too basic to be lectured on for minutes at a time in Cooking Terms and What They Mean. What audience could Playing Together have possibly been intended for? And what on earth was Your Chance to Live: Technological Failures about? Relive your finest note-passing days with Mike, Kevin and Bill. It’s like serving detention with your funniest friends!
