Screaming Yellow Theater (Svengoolie) - "Wilderness Road" - Ask Svengoolie (Segment #1-3, 1973)
Here's another segment from Screaming Yellow Theater - the original Svengoolie, which aired on WFLD Channel 32 from 1970-1973. Svengoolie was played by Jerry G. Bishop. By this point, if the clapboard is of any indication, the SYT title had been eschewed in favor of Svengoolie.
This segment (#1-3) is from Show #59 (according to the clapboard). However, there is no recording date.
In this segment, Svengoolie answers questions from viewers and "members of our studio audience." One was from a man whose wife made him so nervous he lost 50 pounds; another enquired about Sven's occupation before becoming a movie show host (a lumberjack in the Sahara Desert); and another from "an Oriental man in the audience" asking about his vision problems ("I don't have a cataract - I have a Rincoln Continental").
Directed by Phil Doty.
This aired on local Chicago TV sometime in early 1973.
