Before Cinema Insomnia, before Elvira, before MST3K/Cinematic Titanic/Rifftrax, and before Svengoolie, there was Ernie Anderson- Ghoulardi. One of the most outrageous(-ly funny) shows to hit Northeast Ohio (or anywhere, for that matter)! The show brimmed with all sorts of laugh-out-loud mischief, such as Ghoulardi messing around with the cheesy "B"-grade and "Z"-grade films he presented, cracking (frequently off-color) jokes, and, yes, even setting off M-80s and other firecrackers on set. The show's lifespan was then later expanded after Anderson left for Hollywood, as it was overhauled into "Hoolihan and Big Chuck", with WJW's weatherman Bob "Hoolihan" Wells, and Ernie's cameraman, "Big" Chuck Schodowski (who is most recognizable for his "certain ethnic" bits). After Wells departed Cleveland, another generation (mine) then saw the continuation of the series with Chuck and wee-sized local jeweler John Rinaldi (as "The Big Chuck and Lil' John Show"). Although Big Chuck and Lil' John no longer make new episodes of the show, they continue to host their old skits, still making Saturday mornings fun after all these years! Furthermore, the Ghouldari character has a successor as well in the "Son of Ghoul", who also continues to host his own show on Northeastern Ohio TV. Stay sick, ya finks! Turn blue!
