There Is (Was?) a Russian Mystery Science Theater

Recommended Videos

Mind blowing whole episode here.  From the YouTube Description, Google Translated:

The protagonist – Stepa is a guinea pig at the Institute of Brain. His mind processes the old movies the villain Professor Zamyshlyavkin. But friends – talking dog ketchup and cynical penguin Fidel always ready to joke in the most dangerous places for the psyche! Watch movies with the steppe, ketchup and Fidel – the best entertainment for fans of black humor!

The premise, the globe spinning mad scientist, the red robot and the yellow beaked robot, the robot roll call, the shot in the theater where one of the robots looks directly into the camera… it’s all there.  That guy even looks kind of like Mike.  For comparison.

We don’t doubt that Russia has some amazingly bad films to give the MST3K treatment, but do they have Rifftrax?
