What was the show with the characters making cracks about the films?

Every Sat night, on one of the cable stations, there's a different old monster movie hosted by a guy called Svengoolie. They have ranged from the original classics Bride of Frankenstein and the Wolf Man to last night's Deadly Mantis.
Similar schtick to MST3K.
He does a corny intro (from his coffin while people off camera throw rubber chickens at him) and there are equally corny gags during commercial breaks.

MST3K doesn't just introduce bad movies and make jokes during commercial breaks. They sit down front and watch the movie WITH you and yell funny (and less funny) shit at the screen throughout. It's like watching a bad horror movie in Times Square in the 1970s. But without the pungent aroma of cannibis pervading the air... and the floors are less sticky (at least in my house).

Watched several old public service films about grooming and cleanliness and how to catch a woman/man last night. Snarky :D

Svengoolie tries to do that, too. But he doesn't do that as well as MST3K.

Svengoolie was a tad hilarious!
