Rare B&W 1960's...We've had the original in our studio since the 1970's. Believed to be a Kansas City original broadcast of "Nightmare", a local horror TV show produced in the 60's. Features five different local sponsors, including an appliance store promoting washing machine sales, and a music store. This show, "Nightmare", has a sidekick named "Rodney", who always gets into mischief and is mistreated by his master. On this video, you will find rare cuts of the actual studio footage, shot for cutaways for other horror programming. The host and "Rodney" were always in different locations, great sets, they even drove a car onto the set for a simulated golf game on the set! We wish we had more detailed information on the original production of this video. We found this on a 3/4 inch video tape, preserved in the 70's through Kinescope. Almost 40 minutes long, cult classic material!!

Heres how one TV guy remembers the show,he writes:  "HI, I watched rodney and the host when i was around six or seven and I am 50 now! This was out of Wichita KS and I am from Garden City, Ks 200 miles from Wichita. The HOST was a news Broadcaster and I believe on friday or saturday late nite is when the HOST was on. He would do a little intro and then go to a scary movie. This went on thru every break.About 3 or 4 years later he hosted a cartoon show where he was called MAJOR ASTRO. He was in a space suit and a "rocket ship" doing intros into commercials then to cartoons. sorry to go to memory lane but I thought you might like to know."
