  • TV's Frank, played by Frank Conniff, is a fictional character who is lab assistant to mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester's in the television comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000. He appears at the beginning of Season 2, with the departure of Forrester's earlier co-scientist Dr. Laurence Erhardt, and continues through Season 6. According to The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, Dr. Forrester discovered Frank working at a nearby Arby's. Early on he was simply called Frank; later he acquired the more ostentatious name which is a reference to how a TV personality would sometimes be introduced as "TV's so-and-so" on talk shows and other programming. Frank wears a black chauffeur's uniform and his hairstyle includes a spit-curl (resulting in a resemblance to that of Marlon Brando's Jor-El role in the 1978 Superman film). He has an unusual habit of calling Dr. Forrester "Steve". He is listed in Deep 13's employee records as "Frank, TV's," indicating that "Frank" is actually his surname and "TV's" is his given name. Little is known about Frank's past save that he attended Harriet Tubman High School (a real high school in Compton, California), where he was held back at least twice. While working at Arby's, Frank was allegedly nicknamed "Zeppo" due to his supposed sense of humor, which was somewhat ironic since Zeppo was the least funny Marx Brother. Frank had a surprisingly large personal fortune which surfaced whenever a large amount of money was required for a particular skit. (en)
