* CelebrityResemblance: The riffs have remarked This trope is routine for the show as every episode involves pointing out how people on screen look like famous individuals.
** A hilarious running example of this is showcased during the riffing of ''Film/RedZoneCuba'' which points out
how Creator/ColemanFrancis looks like [[Film/TheThreeStooges Curly Howard]].

Several episodes were repackaged for syndication in a trimmed-down version known as ''The Mystery Science Theater Hour'', with new framing segments parodying the introductions used by classic film channels and featuring Nelson as an expy of avuncular A&E ''Biography'' host Jack Perkins. In general, however, ''[=MST3K=]'' did not lend itself to commercial exploitation; each episode ran for two hours (with commercials), and the production team struggled to obtain and keep the rights to the films it riffed. As a consequence of these issues, ''[=MST3K=]'' was barely broadcast outside the US and remains unknown in large parts of the English-speaking world.

In the years since the show's end, distribution rights to many of the riffed movies reverted to their original owners, which means episodes of ''[=MST3K=]'' featuring those films can't (legally) be redistributed. For several years, [[http://www.rhino.com/mst3k/index.lasso Rhino Entertainment]] released episodes on video and DVD; in 2008, the DVD rights were [[ChannelHop transferred]] to Creator/ShoutFactory, and the Rhino releases slowly went out of print. Most of the episodes released on DVD are available for streaming on Netflix.
