Mystery Spatula Theatre?

It seems that some MST3K-loving cable access TV types have created a loving tribute in the form of Mystery Spatula Theater 11. (The YouTube clip mentions their website.

We put Duracells in this French chanteuse and normal batteries in...

A YouTube wag thinks that this medley of 1960s videos by French singer Sheila is really a disguised ad for Duracell. I would say that the cover of Hello Little Girl by Lennon and McCartney, in particular, reveals that this was the day that Sheila forgot to stick to decaf. :)

All singing! All dancing! All Lemony-fresh!

Here's a link to Bold Detergent:The Musical. And only 59 seconds too!

Worst Record Covers ever

This collection of Worst Album covers includes the LP "Can I Borrow A Feelin'?" And I thought that was a Kirk Van Houten song!

I expect to find the first LP by the 1960s German rock band The Tonics on one of these sites someday. It shows the band members jumping in a distrubingly crazy way.

Artist Upton recalls that the strip was "Mysteriously popular with kids." But Socialist Turtle is such a cuddly-looking agitator!
