With Pearl.

Leonard Maltin is an American film critic, best known for his annually updated Movie and Video Guide and for being the in-house movie critic for TV's Entertainment Tonight.

In the MST3K episodes Laserblast and The Undead, as well as in the Amazing Colossal Episode Guide, Maltin was ridiculed for assigning relatively high star ratings to certain MST-ied movies, while giving lower ratings to comparatively high-quality films (such as Clint Eastwood's 1992 Oscar-winning Western Unforgiven).

Far from taking offense at the Brains' drubbing, Maltin went on to guest star as himself in the episode Gorgo, in which Pearl Forrester sought out his advice for a particularly painful movie to subject Mike and the Bots to.

Maltin was later featured as one of the many praising critics on the cover of Mike Nelson's popular book Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese.

Maltin is the co-host of the podcast "Maltin on Movies" with Baron Vaughn.
