halloween is just super duper hehehehe!!

If there is one thing that the newer generations have sorely missed out on (besides Disco) is the television variety show phenomenon. Yeah sure, Jessica and Nick tried to revive the form with their insincere cut-n-paste Christmas show, but they couldn't even come close to the cheeseball shenanigans of those iconic 70s programs.

The holiday seasons were an especially great time for the variety show lover. Year after year we were treated to Perry Como and his Christmas presence. Donny and Marie, Andy Williams, Mac Davis, Carol Burnett, Sonny and Cher, and a host of others sang and jested their way through the 4th of July, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving, as well. But, the best holiday programming came from the offbeat sources...

Like Paul Lynde and his zany Halloween TV Special
