    Jon Pertwee on Son of Svengoolie Views: 947
     Saturday, July 07 2007 @ 07:00 PM EDT
    Another awesome YouTube discovery. Here in Chicago we've had a long-running local TV horror-movie show called The Son of Svengoolie, where the host, Svengoolie, introduces classic (and not so classic) horror movies and breaks with comedy, novelty songs, etc. I have a picture of me and Svengoolie from around 1979 when I was 10 years old. So I was searching YouTube for Svengoolie clips and stumbled on the following. Jon Pertwee was in town for a Dr. Who convention and appeared on Svengoolie's show.



    /- edited to add -/
    I Googled and found out that TARDIS 21 was back in November 1984, so that's when this Svengoolie clip is from. Wink

    I've been a fan of the Son of Svengoolie for going on 30 years now...as evidenced by the following:

    I was about 10 in that picture. It's from around 1979. The Corn Pops t-shirt featuring Big Yella helps nail down the approximate year. Big Grin
