This is the greatest local TV show in television history in my opinion. It's general wackiness has never been equaled. Here in Northeast Ohio, it's THE greatest show EVER. Host Ghoulardi, played by "Golden Throat" Ernie Anderson, makes all other horror hosts pale in comparison. Sadly, not much footage remains today, but what has survived is the stuff legends are made of. The show really had no plot to speak of, Ghoulardi showed a bad movie, added sound effects, often superimposed himself in the film, and created havoc wherever he went. He made a local legend out of making fun of PARMA, and the catchphrases "Stay Sick", "Turn Blue", and "Ova Dey" are still spoken here. I was very sad when Anderson died in 1997, it made front page headlines here, and everyone still misses him. In 1971, Ron Sweed, who did work for Ernie, took up the beard and goatee and became The Ghoul, and his show "The Ghoul Show" is still running today, as is the other local show "The Big Chuck and Little John Show". While nothing will EVER match this show, at least we have many things to remember it by.
