Red face Cool Ghoul, Larry Smith, Uncle Al

SunnyDee I remember all of these characters! I would LOVE to see some old reruns of Cool Ghool and Bob Shreve. Especially Bob Shreve, he was hilarious! Oh, and to Mikey1003... you heard right; Uncle Al didn't like kids too much; my grandma was a waitress at an establishment that he frequented in Mt Washington back in the day, and well.... let's just say he had some less than pleasant pet names for the kids that loved him and his show!

Sunday, July 4, 2004 Late TV host Shreve thriving on the 'Net By Jim Knippenberg
Enquirer staff writer

Television people never die, they are just reborn all over the Internet.

Witness the case of local TV great Bob Shreve, who died in 1990, but is alive and well on two fan sites.

Shreve is best remembered for hosting the almost all-night Past Prime Playhouse, a program that ran 1966-85 and showed really bad movies. But everyone watched because of Shreve's one-liners and the incredibly bizarre things he did on the air, from gags with his rubber chicken to his semi-obscene pop-up tie.

The popular belief at the time was that he had a few sips of brew between his segments and that the show got better - lots better - as the evening wore on. If you want to relive the Shreve experience:

• tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/shrevefans/ was founded in June of 2003 and now has a slew of members sharing photos and actively engaging in chats about Shreve memories and stunts. It's a busy site, with 252 messages in the past seven days alone. You have to register to use it, but once you do you have access to the chat, photos and Shreve's hand-written notes.
Bob Shreve's Past Prime Playhouse was also founded in 2003, this one with the approval and cooperation of Bob Shreve Jr., who takes questions from members in a feature called "Ask Bob Jr."

LOL! I was never an Uncle Al fan, but the other local talent was great!

Default Local tv

You guys have ressurected some fond memories of old local tv...I lived in Richmond Indiana, so I picked up stations from Indy to Cinci...I was a kid when Bob Shreeve was on PPP, and I look back and he must of had a boozing every show, that chicken was hilarious...The Kool Ghoul on Saturday afternoons was great, watching all those old Gamara monster movies...Roller Derby out of Cinci, Wrestling out of Dayton, the Dayton Gems, the Cinci Royals, the old red machine, the Indiana Pacers back when they were ABA, remember the old Royals point guard, he was like 5ft tall...I remember George McGinnis on the Pacers, great player...

Out of Indy you had Janie, Cowboy Bob....Both local cartoon shows...

Dayton wrestling had Bobo Brazil, and so many others...Indy wrestling had Dick, the most dangerous man in the world, the Bruiser, and his brother the Crusher...GREAT TV....Not like today...I remember seeing Nick Clooney on channel 12 out of Cincy...I guess I could go on and on....Its awesome....

Does anyone remember the "Kwik Brothers" from the King Kwik commercials? "Ice is nice". Mike Tangi played both the brothers.
