Southern Ontario Remembers
What can be said about a great locally produced kids show that was on in mornings? I remember always getting up in the morning to watch "Hilarious House" before going to school. All of us who were kids in the 70's from Southern Ontario watched it all the time. Even when it was on reruns early weekend mornings in the 80's. A show that had all hilarious characters mainly played by Billy Van. The Wolfman was the best with is "Chime Time" and then throwing a golf ball at a clock to tell what time it was. Then watching Igor dance with him with psychedelic visuals behind them to some 60's rock. Or Aaron the ape getting nailed with a golf ball and falling over. Or how about 'it's Zany Zoo Time" "Ooga Booga". Too bad Global didn't snag the rights to the show when they bought CHCH 11 (known also as ONTV). E-mail Global and maybe they will do it for their Prime or Deja View specialty channels. Hilarious House will always be a classic show for us from Southern Ontario. Remember Vincent Price at the end.."The castle lights are growing dim, there's no one left but me and him. When next we meet in Frankenstone, Don't come alone"
