Yes, it’s another quick look at Rich Koz, star and writer of the Son of Svengoolie show from 1979-1986, later known as just plain Svengoolie like his predecessor Jerry Bishop. That second show was launched in 1995 and is still on the air. This glimpse at the work of the Babe Ruth of movie hosts deals with the schlocker Track of the Vampire. Sven does a sketch and a song parody about Dorena’s awkward dance on the beach, which to bad movie lovers like me is the equivalent of Elaine’s dance on Seinfeld. The song parody is to the tune of Help Me Rhonda by the Beach Boys – click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8bPMykijGY

Love this! Rich Koz doesn’t get the credit he deserves considering how many people imitated his style. .
Thanks for commenting! I agree, his influence affects the bad movie and movie host “sub-culture” to this very day.
I love the way I’m searching for an image to use for your title card in your post about Son of Svengoolie and Google sends me to you.
Wow! That’s good to hear I guess! Thanks for letting me know!
