Does anybody else remember this TV series? I believe it aired on Nickelodeon on the late 80s/early 90s. They would chop up older movies then redub them in the hopes of making them funny. I don't remember much about it, other than it being my introduction to the original Night of the Living Dead. Any ways, it kinda reminds me of MSTK3, but predates by a good long while.

I have vague but fond memories of "Mad Movies with the LA Connection." It was on in syndication around 1985-1986 and then briefly on Nick at Nite shortly afterward (or maybe even at the same time). I'm a big fan of MST3K and I can definitely say that this show was my first exposure to that sort of "mocking commentary" humor.

The only movie I remember for sure that they did was a version of "Cyrano de Bergerac." The only downside was that it was a half-hour show, so the movies were severely edited.

It was very funny, and my best memories of it also were from the Night of the Living Dead Episode. "Looks like the lettuce has gone bad" Laughing

Definatly started the roots to me becoming such a huge MST3K fan I agree!

I think I remember this. Didn't they dub some old Kung Fu movies? I can't remember. Maybe I'm thinking of something totally different.
