Dr. Clayton Forrester and TV’s Frank

(Drawing by Fanboy Wife.)
The first adversary on the show Mystery Science Theater 3000 was Dr. Clayton Forrester. He was a mad scientist that worked at Gizmonic Institute with green classes and a mustache. Since he was evil, he launched the hapless Joel Robison into space. Not only did he force Joel to watch horrible movies as an evil experiment, he also ran the Invention Exchange.
Dr. Forrester also tormented his assistants. His first assistant was Dr. Larry Erhardt, but he was replaced with TV’s Frank after he left the show. TV’s Frank is evil, but dumb. He also managed to survive many odd experiments performed on him. In the end, Frank ascended to henchmen heaven. Dr. Forrester turned into a star child, and had to be raised to an adult again, but his own mother killed him.

  1. Dr. Clayton Forrester was also the name of Gene Barry's character (a good guy, BTW) in War of the Worlds (1953).
