This week on It Was a Thing on TV we’re hitting the California retirement communities with Nipsey Russell as we chase ghosts with a Gorilla.
First, Your Number’s Up may be a blip on the map of television history, but it holds a place in our hearts. Nipsey Russell hosted it! All the geriatrics in Burbank loved it. Need we say more?
Then, one of the more fascinating and entertaining Saturday morning shows in the mid-70s was The Ghost Busters, starring Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch, who worked together in the 60s on F Troop. Unrelated to the movie franchise of the same name, it got a second life in the 80s thanks to that movie, but that’s another episode. It was cancelled for a reason we haven’t covered thus far on this show, but you’ll have to listen to find out.
