50 years ago to the day this Saturday, our founding host Bob Wilkins launched the first episode of Creature Features upon an unsuspecting nation. And we’ll be celebrating this jubilee of a day with you! Also with John Stanley, Bob’s successor who took over when Bob went on to do other things. We’ll also be joined by our current director, Tom Wyrsch, who inherited what was left of the original show from Bob (including his rocking chair) and single-handedly revived Creature Features himself. They’ll tell us all about the old days of Creature Features as we show some clips from the original show.
We’ll also be screening the first film Bob showed on that premiere night: The Horror of Party Beach from 1964. Often noted as “the worst film ever made” we have to say, it really isn’t all that bad. Yes, the monsters are a bit goofy, but it seems like a group of people put a lot of love and effort into this little film and it shows.
All this while Tangella demonstrates a variety of explosive confetti dispensers, this Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time on KOFY TV20, the YouTube link below, our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels and on a commemorative selection of golden television stations nationwide. Don’t miss it!
