Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return – The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t (2017)

It’s embarrassing to admit, but the movie covered by the gang in this episode (1966’s “The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t”) is the kind of movie I would have loved as a child. Growing up bilingual in the late 1980s near a ma-and-pa video store, I’m used to binging on dubbed children’s movies, like 1970’s “Peau d’Ane” and 1984’s “J’ai Rencontré le Père Noël” among others, so I tremendously enjoyed this Italian oddity. Mind you, it’s a terrible movie, but it’s an enjoyable one, and the gang clearly has a good time ripping into it.
