Hooray for Santy Claus!

So, it's Christmas Eve. Tomorrow, there will be presents, feasting, and general good tidings, but for tonight... let's have some mockery, shall we?

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is often considered to be one of the worst sci-fi movies ever made, and quite possibly the worst Christmas movie (though Skipping Christmas comes pretty fucking close). The title says, if not all, then most of it: Santa Claus, along with two annoying little kids, is kidnapped by Martians, who decide their children need a Santa figure to lessen the fact that they're being turned into rigid little robots by Martian childhood. Throw in a "comedically" incompetent Martian tag-along (complete with "WAH-wah"-type sound effects), the world's most unbelievable piece of robotics, and Pia "She's In The Attic!" Zadora as a young Martian, and you have a piece of crap for the ages.

That is why I give you Mystery Science Theatre 3000 vivisecting Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, in ten parts. God bless you, YouTube and Best Brains.

Ha! I actually own the DVD of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians! I think I'll watch it again first, then watch your YouTube links. My kids won't fall asleep until 2 a.m. anyway, so I'll need something to keep me awake (and laughing)(quietly!).

Merry Christmas to the Cognito clan!
Merry Christmas, Badger!
