|~ Max pushing the button.|
TV's Son of TV's Frank, more commonly called Max, was an antagonist on Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return.
Max was portrayed by Patton Oswalt.
The son of TV's Frank, Max became Kinga Forrester's assistant on Moon 13 as she resurrected her father's most successful experiment, MST3K. As part of the experiment Max and Kinga captured Jonah Heston and put him on the rebuilt Satellite of Love along with the bots Cambot, Gypsy, Tom Servo, and Crow T. Robot.
The Kinga and Max would force Jonah and the bots to watch bad movies while they monitored Jonah's mind. Max would help Kinga with invention exhanges, and at the end of each episode would push the button when Kinga ordered him to.
Early on in the 11th season he discovered the key for Reptilicus Metallicus that Kinga had hidden. He kept the key, intending to make use of Reptilicus at the proper time.
While the 11th season of MST3K progressed, Max had fallen in love with Kinga. Kinga however was not interested in him, and sought to marry another man. Her existing relationships fell through, and she set her sights on marrying Jonah Heston. On Kinga's wedding day, Max, in a fit of jealousy, activated Reptilicus Metallicus. Reptilicus swallowed Jonah whole.
Kinga ran off, furious that her wedding had been ruined, while a frightened Max ordered himself to push the button to end the 11th season of MST3K.
