The "Our Gang" Connection!
That cute little guy pictured to your left? That is none other than Winky from shows #413 Manhunt in Space & #417 Crash of the Moons. Only when this photo was taken he was known as Spanky's best bud, Scotty, from the Our Gang serials.
Beckett had a pretty tough time of it, suffering from depression and alcoholism. He died 2 days after a serious beating at the age of 38.
To your right is a picture of Johnny Downs. Johnny was one of the early era Our Gang actors, starring in the series in the 1920's! Johnny's MST connection comes from playing reporter Tom Gregory in the season one episode...Mad Monster.
Ray "Crash" Corrigan from the "Undersea Kingdom" shorts, had a son named Tom. Tom, then 14, was in the house when his stepfather, Bud Stiltz, shot and killed Carl Switzer, AKA Alfalfa, in a dispute over $50. Tho the stepfather claimed self defense and was exonerated. Tom stated in an interview in the "Philadelphia Daily News" in Jan 2001, that it was "More like murder". Switzer was only 31.
A quick note about a contest...
And the Winner is.... In August of 2008 I celebrated the 6th anniversary of Mighty Jack's, and the 2nd anniversary of the Superhero Marathon, by hosting a contest that asked entrants to create a superhero or villain based on MST3K.
Queen Shadowrama won a Puma Man T shirt for her super villainous take on the Master - I love the design, the color and the hands logo. Truly a baddie who looks like he could stand against Marvel or DCs finest
