Pop Culture Classics from the 50s & 60s (Video Resources, 1993). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

This fun tape mines a hodgepodge of TV weirdness from the 50s and early 60s. Highlights include the Three Stooges as network vice-presidents, Dave Garroway trying to explain the concept behind "The Today Show", Froggie the Gremlin (who may have been the first mster) foiling at every turn the attempts of an extremely sappy kid show performer to tell a fairy tale, Poochie, the puppet dog on "Rootie Kazootie" singing like Mario Lanza, and McHale's Navy rocking out to "Papa Oom Mow Mow." A fun collection of weird moments, which is a lot of what collecting film ephemera is all about.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: *****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
