    I only know this from the blurry print shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (and even then it’s one of my favorite episodes), so this looks perfect. Thanks!

    True, it’s the full version, but the embedded subtitles are off (probably belonging to the shorter ver.) and I can’t find them for this version :(
