Mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester and his assistant, TV's Frank, have trapped a hapless soul (Joel, later Mike) in the vacuum of outer space. With their guinea pig aboard the bone-shaped Satellite of Love, they force upon him experiment after evil experiment from their underground lair. The sinister goal: find a movie so bad that it will break a man's soul, driving him to insanity. Once found, this cinematic weapon would be unleashed upon the world, turning the populace to zombies, and opening the door for Dr. Forrester's omnipotency. With the company of his robot pals Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo, the trio of deep space jesters makes the best of the situation and maintains just enough sanity through wisecracking commentary and an occasional song and dance.
In the not-too-distant future, a man and his robots are trapped aboard the Satellite of Love, where mad scientists force them to sit through the worst movies ever made.
A stranded spaceship pilot captured by mad scientists survives a blitz of cheesy B movies by riffing on them with his funny robot pals.
Series Parental Guide
Several inneundos throughout in some episodes.
Any movie they watch with nudity, is thoroughly blurred out to keep it family friendly.
Not much than a couple cheesy or funny shots of violence either in the movies they watch or with the characters.
Usually nothing worse than "hell," "damn," and "ass"
Whenever a movie has foul language it is blanked out, sometimes the characters make fun of this.
Rarely and, maybe a couple of references.
NEVER ANYTHING FRIGHTENING! The characters keep it funny the entire time.
