Those who follow the Major Spoilers Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/majorspoilers) know when I’m heading off to bed, I pull that line from the famous MST3K episode featuring Manos: The Hands of Fate.  If you don’t know who Torgo is, then I weep for you.  For those who do, check out Torgo Jones.

    I first learned of Torgo through MST3K, and will forever have the haunting “Torgo’s Theme” in my brain. Live long, Torgo!

    Oh man. Torgo doesn’t say “Time for go to bed,” Tor Johnson does in “The Unearthly” IIRC. Torgo is the Satyr from “Manos: The Hands of Fate” and is mostly known for saying “the Master would not approve.”

    Wow. The fact that you know that Torgo and Tor Johnson exists makes you a MST3K fan, I guess, but how could you possibly get the two mixed up?

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
