Some notable negative reactions include that of Sandy Frank , who held the rights to several Gamera films parodied on the show. He said he was "intensely displeased" by the mockery directed at him. The crew once sang the "Sandy Frank Song", which said that Frank was "the source of all our pain", "thinks that people come from trees", Steven Spielberg "won't return his calls", and implied that he was too lazy to make his own films.
Because of this, Frank reportedly refused to allow the shows to be rebroadcast once MST3K ' s rights ran out. According to Shout Factory , the Japanese movie studio Kadokawa Pictures were so horrified with MST3K's treatment of five Gamera films that they refused to let Shout release the episodes on home video.

Factory explained to fans on the forums of the official Shout! Factory website that they tried their best to convince them, but the Japanese take their Gamera films very seriously and do not appreciate their being mocked.

I had a blast, never laughed so hard in my life. West apparently held no grudges, as he hosted the "Turkey Day" marathon in which the episode featuring Zombie Nightmare had its broadcast premiere.
