Bishop as Svengoolie). Starring young wisecracker Rich Koz, the show was an immediate cult favorite, sort of a Dr. Demento of TV, airing multitudes of low budget Sci-Fi and Horror movies, sometimes with Koz's wisecracks and various sound effects thrown in. Temporarily suspended in 1986 when Rupert Murdoch bought WFLD 32 and made it into the current day FOX network, it subsequently found a home on Chicago Cable/UHF station WCIU, where it airs to this day (2003).
