Not much time to blog on a busy Thanksgiving, so instead, here's a Turkey Day treat: a Mystery Science Theater 3000 short film that was never released on TV. Assignment: Venezuela was an industrial film about the oil boom in Venezuela at mid-century. MST3K gave it the business for a CD-ROM project in the mid-to-late '90s. The project fell through, and they showed the short at the 1996 "Conventio-Con Expo Fest-a-Rama II: Electric Bugaloo" in Minneapolis. Later it was included as an extra on one of their DVDs. I remember it being funny, and through the wonder of YouTube, we can confirm or deny. It's in three parts, top to bottom. Enjoy!
