We’re just in time for a spooktacular look at two beloved Halloween specials. The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t (1979) has a disco-battle with 1976’s The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (not really), and we duke it out ourselves with some serious Skype issues, including a sound delay which makes the whole recording just a touch bit awkward. But our love of the season is in check, and so is the fake Paul Lynde chest hair, so give us a whirl, disco baby!
And, as promised, here is a side by side comparison of the interiors of the (Paul?) Lyndhurst Mansion as it looked in The Halloween that Almost Wasn’t, and how it looks now:
At the end of the show, I also mention the book I edited, Are You in the House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium: 1964-1999, which is already listed on Amazon, in case you’d like to pre-order a copy!
Although the book’s street date is in April 2017, Monster Fest in Melbourne, Australia is hosting a launch next month! Read all about it here.
We’re also taking a pod-hiatus, but we’ll be back in December when the book launch has settled. That certainly does not mean that we don’t want to hear from you, so check out our Contact Us page, or comment on this post. See you soon!
