These are props from my own personal collection.
Except for the bots they were all used in actual episodes.
|I guess I'll start with my own Tom and Crow. Unfortunately not from the show, but built personally by master bot builder Gary Glover.|
|Enok, the King of the Demon Dogs from Robot vs. the Aztec Monster (102). This is a working puppet that was voiced by Jim Mallon until Enok was eaten by Gypsy.|
|Another actual demon dog from Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (102) and the season 1 intro. The big guy was one that hung from the SOL desk. The little one is seen at the end of episode 102 chasing a tennis ball into space.|
|This is the Satellite of Love shipping case that can be seen in the show opening from 201-512. It blasts off out of a Gizmonic Institute building and delivers the SOL to space. I'll put a list of all the little stickers in my Ouch, Minutiae section.|
|The two Mole Man masks, Jerry and Sylvia. After
first appearing in Rocketship X-M (201) they added the respirator for 202. The masks
were even used during the first Turkey Day marathon in 1991.
(The respirator was used again for the Jack Palance Impersonator Kit in 405.)
|Tom sports his Rommel hat as seen in The Sidehackers (202). Tom again wore this hat as the director of the Emotional Scientist sketch in King Dinosaur (210).|
|Here is the water foosball
invention exchange from Rocket Attack USA (205).
I picked this up from none other than Beez McKeever.
|Just in case anyone wanted to see a close up of the foosball players.|
|Joel's "warrior" hat worn during a Cave
Dwellers (301) host segment.
It was also worn by Jack Perkins during the intro to Part 2 of the MST3K Hour version of Cave Dwellers
|This is Joel's teal jumpsuit that he wore in episodes
208 through 211. Joel switched to a burgundy outfit in 212 that he wore up until he
departed the Satellite Of Love. At the beginning of Mighty Jack (314) during a
disaster on the SOL the retired jumpsuit was mussed up a bit.
The behind the scenes picture to the right was in the MST3K 2002 Calendar of Days.
|Pat Buchanan facial tissue that really is nothing to be sneezed at. Part of the Mads' invention exchange in Space Travelers (401).|
|Here's Crow modeling his fashionable duct-tape shirt worn in the Teenagers From Outer Space (404) fashion show.|
|A personal favorite. A Tragic Moments figure from Being From Another Planet (405).|
|It's Jim Henson's Edgar Winter Baby! as seen in The Killer Shrews (407).|
|During the second Turkey Day marathon in 1992 Frank is forced to eat a turkey from each movie shown. This is obviously the one forced upon him for The Unearthly.|
|This waffle from Viking Women vs. the Sea Serpent (317) was given to a MSTie by Jef Maynard during a tour of the studio back in 1992.|
|During the Attack of the Eye Creatures (418) the ghost of Ethan Allen channels the Router Ouija Board.|
|When Hugh Beaumont visited the SOL during The Human Duplicators (420) he was flying this suburban spaceship. The ship was first seen in (208) The Lost Continent.|
|This is Bridget's Amazon Mom shirt from Hercules (502).|
|It's a Daktari Stool!
Joel's last invention exchange during Mitchell (512).
(The supports between the legs broke off years ago)
(The stool was used again by Professor Bobo in 802)
|This hammer bonked Mike on the noggin' at the beginning
of episodes 513-624.
It had previously been used in a skit during The Magic Voyage of Sinbad (505) and would be used again in The Thing That Couldn't Die (805).
|Mike's green jumpsuit used during
Mike wore this in his first episode as host, The Brain That Wouldn't Die (513), the Wisconsin patch was added for Beginning of the End (517) and the jumpsuit made it's last appearance in episode (1011) Horrors of Spider Island.
(Note: I'm using the picture to the left from the original eBay auction until I get a chance to take my own.)
|Here are close ups of the Wisconsin patch and name plate.|
|When Joel left after 512 the Gizmonic logo also departed. This is one of the Deep 13 logos made to replace it. (This exact one was never actually used on the show).|
|On the left is the working model for Door 5 from Mike's doorway sequence that was used in episodes 513 to 1013.|
|Crow's fire helmet used during the fire drill in The Dead Talk Back (603) and again for the 1994 Red Cross public service commercial.|

|Crow's Earth vs. Soup script seen in The Incredible Melting Man (704).|
|In the "Guys Night Out" sketch during Escape 2000 (705) Mike is holding this SOL ICE dead soldier in his left hand.|
|Another personal favorite. The last time we see Dr. Forrester he has transformed into this star baby at the end of Laserblast (706).|
|The manipulator gloves from MST3K: The Movie.|
|One of the many small bowling pins that can be seen attached to the set of the movie.|
|This group of toy pliers was used for a section of the SOL set during the Sci-Fi Channel era. It was above and to the right of the door behind Mike and the bots.|
|The dog and bear costumes used in Prince of Space (816). Crow had previously used the bear get up in Jack Frost (813).|
|When Bobo steals this big cheese wheel he knocks over a
lantern and sets Rome a blaze at the end of Space Mutiny (820).
The wedge was also seen at SOL's Deli from Teen-age Crime Wave (522).
|When the Mads move into Castle Forrester Bobo is carrying
a box of LIVER ATS that turns out to be LIVE RATS in The Phantom Planet
Frank's drinking jacket also featured one of these critters during Tormented (414).
|One of Servo's madrigal costumes from Quest of the Delta Knights (913).|
|During the very last shot of the series in Danger: Diabolik (1013) we see Mike and the bots watching The Crawling Eye on TV. This is one of the posters on the wall in that shot.|
And finally a prop that has lasted through the years
|This potty seat was from the Sci-Fi Channel set directly under the hexfield viewscreen. Notice the light blue paint with light gray speckles.|
|This same potty seat was also featured directly above
the doors on the Comedy Central set during seasons 2 through 7.
The color was a light gray even though the lighting sometimes made it appear beige.
|The picture at right shows that when the Comedy Central set was constructed the potty seats and reindeer above the door were already painted the same color, a darker blue/gray than the eventual set paint.|
|When I removed a piece of tape that was stuck to the back of this potty seat I found a darker gray layer of paint.|
|I believe that this potty seat was below the KTMA
doors and has the original paint that was used to paint the set for the pilot and KTMA
The KTMA set sometimes looked red/ orange due to lighting.
