Cleverly Named MST3K Page
Just the facts now, Pearl Forrester is played by Mary Jo Pehl, who has written for the series for quite some time and has played various parts in the past.. Her reception on the show at first was.. Well.. Not very good, (that's putting it mildly) but after Dr Forrester left and she took over, she's started to come out into her own.
Mrs. Forrester (I shudder to think of the Mr Forrester) is much, much, more evil than Dr Forrester ever was. Period. She is very, very, very evil. Heck she strangled the second Dr Forrester, and once even un-plugged the power on the SOL allowing alien life forms to try and infiltrate it.. She also seems to have the power to control people like her pair of cohorts Professor Bobo (see below) and the Observer. (again, see below) She occasionally appears to have a soft-side, but it always turns away, she's pure evil in every sense of the word..
In her two seasons she has tormented her son, along with Mike and the bots. (for some reason she knows Crow really well and calls him Art..) Then at the beginning of the eighth season it was revealed that she was cryogenically frozen and dethawed to become the ape lawgiver, well, after Mike blew her planet up, she followed him from planet to planet, picking up the survivors in her ship (A flying VW Bus called the "Widowmaker") and sending movie after movie to Mike and the bots..
Prof Bobo (A professor in what, I don't know) is played by Kevin Murphy (who also voices Tom Servo) in lots of ape makeup. He's a new addition to the show in this (the eighth) season. After his planet was blown up, he stowed away in Pearl's ship, and has followed her around since.. Oh, but don't get Bobo upset he'll... fling his... doodie at you. Oh, and supposedly, he requires allot of cleaning... One shivers at the thought..
This paticular Observer was the dummest of the Observers, Observer (played by Bill Corbitt, who also voices Crow) actually had a lower test score than Tom Servo, and had his brain chomped on by Prof Bobo.. He now flies around with Pearl and Bobo in the Widowmaker going from planet to planet and force feeding Mike and the bots movies.. Oh, by the way, that famous philosopher is none other than MST's own Mike Nelson.. Go figure.
