The latest addition to our DVD collection:




That's right, Ladies & Gents, it's the Paul Lynde Halloween Special!
{{ crowd goes wild }}




This little gem apparently aired only one time, in the '70s. Why that is, I don't know. It seems to me to be a treasure to be broadcase year after year! Of course, I haven't watched it yet, but how could that not be so?! In addition to comedy legend Paul Lynde, the show features Margaret Hamilton (a.k.a., the Wicked Witch of the West, in full witch regalia no less), diminutive Mormon entertainer Billy Barty, the great Tim Conway, awesome rock band KISS, and a host of others!


I know what you're thinking. "KATERZ! Where can I get *my* copy of this amazing piece of TV history?!" Well, search no more. Get it here at Amazon, or, if you prefer, rent it from Netflix!

Well, my friend... Paul Lynde is great... but you let me know when the Charles Nelson Reilly Halloween Special comes out. THEN I will be running down to my local Wal-Mart looking for DVDs. Sheesh, Wal-Mart. I guess CNR could get me down to Wal-Mart. Since half my Amazon.com orders I have ever placed have ended up M.I.A., it would need to be Wal-Mart.

WAIT!! I have spent WAAAAAAAY too much time talking about Wal-Mart. GO K-MART!! WOO-HOOO!!

Well, I can't believe that you neglected to mention that Witchiepoo from H.R. Pufnstuf (aka Billie Hayes) makes an appearance, also in full witch regalia! The Wicked Witch of the West doing a song-and-dance number with Witchiepoo...how meta is that?
