  • I haven't seen many episodes of MST3K, but I think this one is definitely the funniest.

    "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" is definitely my favorite episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Yes, I like it even more than "Manos."

    Everything is in fine form: Crow is his usual cynical self, the film is as horrible as ever, and the jokes are spot-on and hilarious. Who can forget such classic MST3K lines as "So what's in the pipe, Santa?", "We can still make it to happy hour!", and one of my personal favorites, this exchange between Tom Servo and Crow:
    "So, Crow, what do you want for Christmas?"
    "I wanna decide who lives and who dies!"

    But easily the best part of this episode is the song "A Patrick Swayze Christmas." I can watch this scene innumerable times and still laugh.

    Altogether, this is a classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode.
