I saw both of these when they were first shown (via remote, not in Nashville), and I thought they both turned out OK. SCCTM (which, while shown first, was the latter release) held up for one more riffing session. While some of the jokes were reminiscent of the MST version, they were still quite funny. And the short "Santa and the Fairy Snow Queen" was very off-kilter, with Snoopy being basically Mr. B Natural's younger cousin.
Meanwhile, the shorts program was also OK. It was nice to have "Weird Al" Yankovick stop by to help riff on "Three Magic Words", which extolls the magnificence of pork. While some shorts worked better than others, the biggest laugh came from the Fleischer version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". (If you've seen it, you know what part I'm talking about.)

What do I need to say about "Prince of Space". It's one of the best shows from the TSNWSRN era, with great riffing and funny host segments. (Whoever has the Mike puppet is a deeply lucky person.) And while the movie is pretty stupid, it's a lot more fun than the similar "Invasion of the Neptune Men".
So, your thoughts?
Watch out for snakes.
