In the Bay Area, we had an afternoon show called "Chillers from Science Fiction" which showed mostly the post-atomic mutation horror films. Of course, they were more campy than horror. Some of them I still regard as classics, especially "Them!" which is a very good film. The Roger Corman movies were the best, though my favorite, the original "Not of This Earth" never airs anymore and is even difficult to find on DVD. I did find a copy in a bargain bin once, that had two films on it, neither of which were mastered in any kind of qualitry. I seriously had the hots for Elvira.

I had Creature Feature on Saturday nights. From wikipedia:

WDCA-Channel 20 (Washington, D.C.)

Creature Feature was also the name for a horror show in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, broadcast on WDCA Channel 20, from 1973 to 1987. It was hosted by Dick Dyszel, known locally for his work as Bozo the Clown and Captain 20. On air he was known as Count Gore de Vol (a pun on the name of American writer Gore Vidal), and to this day is considered to be the longest running horror host in history. Today Count Gore de Vol hosts a Creature Feature website horror show.[2]


I had a fun childhood. We were a house full of monkeys. Lots of world-wide trips.


I... do not remember watching this when I was a kid. But I do remember Svengoolie.

I seen that show last year with a friend it was very strange but pretty cool.


there was a character that came on local TV here name sir Cecil creep... idealistically cheesy, we thought it was great. how many of you remember the Doctor Demento show? was a radio show where this guy played all these bizarre songs. like nun names, my dead dog Rover, does anyone else remember that?

I have never heard of that, sounds pretty cool.

I do! I used to listen to it every week. ?


i have never heard of it, but if i had, my mom wouldn't have let me watch it anyway.

my childhood was rocky, to put it mildly.

I come from a very strict family growing up.

@Sheannutt not me, but they were nuts smile001.gif)



Never watched it.

I watched a few reruns I was not impressed


I grew up in my father's retail bicycle store. Most think it was a awesome childhood, but I was no more then labor and a double tax deduction for my dad; once as his son and once as his employee.

I only got to see this at my Granny's. We didn't have cable and weren't allowed to watch anything that didn't "glorify Jesus" unless my dad liked it, then it was fair game.

Never watched it growing up matter of fact never knew about it until the late 90s and they were reruns.


I grew up with older sisters and classic horror! Dracula, The Mummy, Frankenstein!!!!

Never got into horror. My childhood was more lasers pew pewing and splosions in space.

I grew up on a tropical Haiti mission during the 1950s-60s, and my childhood was awesome!


I think I was too old for this. I didn't grow up with TV so I didn't see a lot of things until they were reruns.
