HALLOWEEN YOU TUBING
Here's the opening to a fondly remembered kid show, The Hilarious House of Frightenstein which was released on DVD recently. Yes, that's Vincent Price doing the opening.

Remember those great local TV horror hosts of the 1960s & 1970s? One of the most creative was Cleveland's Ghoulardi aka Ernie Anderson who was also the voice of ABC in the 1970s, think of the announcer on all those Love Boat promos, ("on the Loooooove Boat"). Anderson passed away in 1997.

L.A. was blessed in the mid-1960s with a very funny local kid show starring a creature created when jellybeans accidentally fell into a Monster Machine - Shrimpenstein. Gene Moss is seen as Dr. Von Schtick with Jim Thurman providing the voices of the puppets.

Speaking of scary things, watch this TV reporter freak out on a Roller Coaster.

REALITY PROOF YOUR HOME
TV BlogThey say, and it's true, that the motion picture industry is recession proof. People who can't afford to get away on vacation or go to a fine dining establishment will still plunk down the cash for a little luxury like a night at the movies. It's always been that way, even during the depression. But that experience today can set you back $13.00 or more per person if you buy a single overpriced snack at the theater.

What about TV shows on DVD? Will they weather the economy? For just a bit more than you'd pay to kill a couple of hours at the cinema you could own an entire season of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Simpsons, Knight Rider, Wonder Woman, S.W.A.T., Sledge Hammer, Family Affair, or Cheers. Those sets are all around $20.00 or less and they're yours to keep, something like 20 hours of entertainment on each.

On the other hand, you can own 'best of' collections of The Twilight Zone, The Commish, I-Spy, and Gene Simmons: Family Jewels for around the price of a Blockbuster rental.

TV shows on DVD is the best entertainment value of all. For instance, you can get the entire run of The Dick Van Dyke Show, Get Smart, or Miami Vice for around $100.00, wallow in the past and forget the current mess. At least for a few days.

SAD PASSINGS
TV BlogJonathan Ball points us to this sad passing: On your page regarding Chucko the Birthday Clown, you have a blurb that reads: "TVparty printed a false rumor that Chucko had passed away and we got this welcome message", and you then reproduce an e-mail you got from the original Chucko, Charles Runyon, affirming that he is alive.

Well, you're going to have to update that page, because now Mr. Runyon has apparently passed away for real. Here's a link to his obituary in the L.A. Times.

Chucko was another friend of this site, a devoted Los Angeles area children's entertainer who positively impacted so many lives in his 10 years on the air, wonderfully creative and a great TV talent. Our condolences to his family.

In related news: House Peters Jr., the original Mr. Clean in Procter & Gamble's commercials, died Wednesday. He was 92. Here's the obit.
