The Mystery Science Theatre 3000 robots are on their way to Atlanta


Robot Roll Call! Fans of the popular 90s cable series “Mystery Science Theatre 3000” will have a chance to see the “stars” of the show on display in Atlanta.

On Sunday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m., Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot from the Emmy-nominated cult television series “Mystery Science Theater 3000” will go on display to the public for the very first time. The Peabody Award-winning sci-fi series has been included in several Top 100 Television Shows of All Time lists in publications including Entertainment Weekly, TIME magazine and Rolling Stone.

The Center for Puppetry Arts will debut these new additions to the Worlds of Puppetry Museum’s Global Collection with a special guest appearance by Joel Hodgson, the creator of “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

The unveiling ceremony will take place in Center’s Mainstage Theater, followed by a special presentation by Hodgson about his journey with puppetry. Immediately following the event, the Center will host a reception with light refreshments, beer and wine for purchase and the opportunity for guests to explore the Worlds of Puppetry Museum.  

A limited number of special VIP tickets are available. The VIP tickets include a photo opportunity with Hodgson and the newly acquired puppets, following the unveiling ceremony and presentation.

These acquisitions were made possible by a Power2Give crowdfunding campaign in conjunction with the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
