On this day in 1997, the Sci Fi Channel era of MST3K began with Experiment 801 - Revenge Of The Creature!
After seven seasons on Comedy Central (stretching back to when it was still The Comedy Channel) and one film, the Satellite of Love crew turned into pure energy at the edge of the universe. In 801, they return to their bodies and the SOL after hundreds of years to continue riffing on cheesy movies, this time under the watchful eye of Pearl Forrester.
The episode was Bill Corbett's inaugural performance as the voice of Crow and kicked off a beloved run of the series that brought such fan-favorite episodes as Prince of Space, Space Mutiny and The Final Sacrifice.
Revenge Of The Creature can be seen on the Volume XXV DVD set.
