Project Popcorn

Project "Popcorn" (Russian: Проект "попкорна") is a fan-made version of Mystery Science Theater 3000 produced in Russia in 2002. It does not try to re-create the original show, instead featuring original characters.[1]

Two episodes were completed and released.


The evil Professor Zamyshlyavkin of the Brain Institute has hired the hapless Styopa Samakatov to participate in an experiment whereby the Professor shows Styopa bad movies to find a means to take over people's minds. Styopa then riffs on the films with his companions, Fidel, a penguin, and Ketchup, a dog. [2]
