In my teens, the best way for me to watch a bad horror movie such as " Creature From the Black Lagoon" or "Plan-9 From Outer Space" was on the TV show "The Son of Svengoolie." TV Horror hosts have been fairly popular (after all, who has not heard of Elvira? ) but in the midwest, in the 80's, the best host in Chicago was the Son of Svengoolie, played by Rich Koz.

Each weekly show was wrapped around a bad movie, and in a style very similar to Mystery Science Theater 3000 had a segment of the movie in 'Svensurround' with added sound-effects and dubbed in dialogue. He helped popularize rubber chickens, bad movies, and immortalized the town of Berwyn, IL!
