Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Album Artwork - I've Seen that Movie Too - MST3K

Joel Hodgson says he got the idea for “Mystery Science Theater” in high school.

“I was listening to Elton John’s album ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ while working on a float,” he says. “There were illustrations for every song and one was of three heads watching a Clark Gable movie.”

Hodgson says it occurred to him that silhouettes cracking jokes at the expense of a movie might make for a good, not to mention inexpensive, show.
