A Redundant Tradition: The Paul Lynde Halloween Special!


Paul's guests include Tim Conway, Margaret Hamilton, Billie "Witchie-Poo" Hayes, Roz "Pinky Tuscadero" Kelly, Billy Barty, the dreaded Florence Henderson, Betty White, and KISS. Need we say more???

  1. Must we drag this out every Halloween? Indeed we must! Few train wrecks compare. Happy Halloween! :-)

    1. I would post this every day of the year but would probably alienate a lot of people. So once a year will have to suffice!

    2. Is there any way we can convince the Library of Congress to preserve this?

  2. This aired on my birthday. Which explains a lot.

  4. Roz Kelly. There is a woman who gained two minutes of fame and spent the rest of her life skidding towards all things bad.

    1. Appearing on this show must have been enough to drive anyone to fire a shotgun at a neighbour's car... Jx

  5. I have the immense pleasure of owning this hoot on DVD and love to drag it out for unsuspecting viewers. Paul's jumpsuit has been cut "about as fer as it can go" as the song goes! For some reason, in those chest-hairy 1970s, it never registered with me back then to be as provocative as it seems now! My very favorite part, though, is that delirious disco version of "Ol' Black Magic" that Flo does. Wow.....................

    1. The whole thing just can't be topped. Unlike Mr. Lynde!

    2. I thought Paul was a mean top, and stay away from the windows, if you know what I mean...

    3. Oh, you're probably right, but you know me, I'll say anything for a cheap laugh!
