Riffed Movies


  • Roy Thinnes is one of the few identifiable actors to have appeared in both a short and a feature used on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (see also Chick Chandler & Lon Chaney Jr.) though all of Mr. Thinnes appearances were in material originally produced for television.
  • Thinnes was one of the actors name-checked in the Quinn-Martin Nature Preserve sketch during Experiment #520 Radar Secret Service, where it was said he could be found picking nits off of Buddy Ebsen (though Crow later realized that the idea was implausible).
