The Adventures of Edward the Less is a short lived, animated web-series published on the SciFi Channel's website in 2001 that was written and performed by most of the core cast and crew members of Mystery Science Theater 3000.  It ran for a total of 13 episodes, with plans for more, though the SciFI Channel never renewed it.


The series, primarily a combination of voice-over work mixed with still-frame paintings, is a parody of high fantasy literature, specifically J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.  The basic story arc deals with a "Pudge" named Edward (voiced by Bill Corbett) who embarks on a great quest with his friend Soapwort (Kevin Murphy) and the wizard Primatene (Paul Chaplin) to throw a magic token into the Crater of Despair located in Mount Pain to destroy it and keep it out of the hands of the evil Dark Person.


The series was kept on the website for the SciFi Channel until the site was removed and replaced with the channel's makeover into the "SyFy Channel" at which point it seemed lost to anyone who hadn't seen it until mirrored and downloaded copies eventually made it to the internet.
