Call me a Homer, but Rich Koz’s Son of Svengoolie (later, with Jerry G Bishop’s permission, just Svengoolie) has consistently been the funniest horror host the nation has offered up.
A (like so many of us back then) very young and svelte Koz assumed the role in 1979–a perfect time, as I was a sophomore in high school–and is still playing the role today. Soon he’ll hit that 40 year anniversary, and it’s a testament to his program that it’s changed very little over the decades. The man knows his business. Hell, his pal Doug Graves is still on the show (as far as I know, I don’t get MeTV sadly).
Best Moment Ever:
Svengoolie: “Hey, Tombstone, are you a blood donor?”
Norman Z. Tombstone Jr. (A floating skull with a bit plastic cigar): “Blood donor? I’m not even a blooood own-er.”
It helps if you know the voices.
