WKBS Channel 48 - Son Of Svengoolie - "The Crawling Hand" (Promo, 1982?)

Views: 4166

Here's a rare promo for Son of Svengoolie on one of the Field Communications affiliates - Philadelphia's WKBS Channel 48.

One interesting thing to note - Son of Sven never showed "The Crawling Hand" on the Chicago version, so this tells us that other movies were used at least once. I wonder if he did any movie related gags for this one or if it was just recycled bits from other shows?

Not sure when this aired but 1982 seems likely.

WFLD Channel 32 - The Koz Zone - "The Futile Gourmet" (1989)

Views: 1968

Here's another great sketch from Episode 13 of The Koz Zone on WFLD Channel 32 - "The Futile Gourmet".

Some parts of this were recycled from bits the original Svengoolie, Jerry G. Bishop did - but Koz probably wrote them for him anyway. :-)

Starring Rich Koz as The Futile Gourmet with Jim Barton doing the opening voiceover.

"The missing link between dinner and the emergency ward..."

This aired on local Chicago TV on Saturday,...

WFLD Channel 32 - Son of Svengoolie - "Evil Of Frankenstein" - "Doug Hosts" (1985)

Views: 2042

Here's a compilation of all the "bits" that survived from a recording of Son of Svengoolie episode #316 featuring the movie "Evil of Frankenstein". (there wasn't a whole lot so I just decided to put it all in one)

The notable thing about this episode was that there's no Sven - Rich was absent for some reason and so Doug fills in as host.

Anyone know the real name of the song that Doug does a parody of? Is it by Alan Parsons Project?
