As a teen in the 80's, I remember watching this show on TV on channel 5. It came on right after the news. It was hair raising for sure from the start. I say 'watching' but most of the time it was more like hiding behind my eyes. I digress. Anyway, it was one of those things you just did on a Friday night.
|The Addams Family|
The Addams Family and The Munsters were two weird families "alive" and well on TV. I loved to tune in to them. I enjoyed watching Cousin It and Thing from the Addams Family converse in a language only known to them. I though Uncle Fester would have been fun to be my uncle with the light bulb trick. Of course who didn't know the theme song for this great show?
I always felt sorry for Marilyn of the Munsters. Having the face of of a beauty queen must have been too much in a family of ghouls. I loved watching what mischief Grandpa and Herman would get in to. It was delightful.
|Elvira, Mistress of the Dark|
|The Twilight Zone|
The Twilight Zone's Rod Sterling wrote and hosted the spookie TV series in the 1960's. I watched many of these shows in re-runs. This show stretched the imagination and highlighted the disturbing. None of the shows related to one another which made its appeal even that more fascinating. Rod Sterling's appearances at the end with his messages sometimes were just as freaky as the show itself.
|Tales From the Crypt|
There are several other TV shows that I could mention here but these were and are some of my favorites. What are your favorites? Tell me in comments. I would like to hear about them.
Your Crypt Keeper,
