Screaming Yellow Theater Trivia

Jerry Bishop spoke with a voice that imitated Bela Lugosi on the very first episode of Screaming Yellow Theater because Lugosi starred in the first episode's movie, "Ghosts On The Loose" and decided to keep the accent for the rest of the series.

Jerry also has the distinction of being one of very few reporters to have interviewed the Beatles at the height of their popularity. In fact, he traveled with them as they toured the U.S. during 1965 and 1966.

Other eerie characters would appear on Screaming Yellow Theater during commercial breaks including Zelda the talking skull and Durwood the ventriloquist dummy.

The series became so popular that it gained a nation-wide cult following. Celebrities were also followers of the show and would call in and ask to appear as a guest when in Chicago. Guests would open the show by signing Svengoolie's guest book and then opening his coffin so he could introduce the movie of the evening.
