2 comments on ““Svengoolie” presents his big broadcast of “The Deadly Mantis” (1957), this Sat. on Me-TV

  1. One of my favorite Big Bug movies of the ’50s and I have a professionally framed poster of it hanging in my living room. In 2008, Svengoolie presented a special “Sven-Surround” version of “The Deadly Mantis” here in Chicago that was absolutely hilarious. In addition to his hysterical sound effects and banter going throughout the entire movie, he performed a parody of Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” that had me tapping my feet and laughing at the same time. I even remember his parody song when he presented the movie as Son of Svengoolie nearly 40 years ago (yes, I’m old). He sang “Eating folks alive” to Dolly Parton’s “9-5” and clearly I never forgot it. Looking forward to Saturday and thanks, Chris, for helping to build up the anticipation. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…you’re the BEST!

    • Greetings, David! Forgive me for the delay in responding back- for some unusual reason, WordPress’ commenting system has been having technical glitches on my end.

      Aside from that, glad you and all fellow super Svengoolie SvenPals enjoyed my article on Sven’s upcoming big broadcast of Nathan Hertz Juran’s classic Universal insect creature masterpiece production of “The Deadly Mantis” (1957)! Highly appreciated! Right back atcha, sir! One of my many favorite classic giant sci-fi insect creature feature masterpieces as well!

      And very cool, neat and awesome that you have a framed edition of the original 1957 Universal theatrical poster artwork for “The Deadly Mantis” and that you witnessed Sven/Rich Koz’s WFLD Berwyn/Chicago “Son of Svengoolie” big broadcast of “The Deadly Mantis” nearly four decades ago with Son of Sven & Doug Graves’ “Eating Folks Alive” song parody of Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” and Sven/Rich’s 2008 WCIU “The U” Berwyn/Chicago big broadcast of the 1957 Universal classic sci-fi insect creature masterpiece in the magic of “Svensurround” with Sven & Doug’s song parody of Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” song!

      As of this writing, I found Sven & Doug’s song parody rendition of “Rehab” on your official “Terror From Beyond the Dave” YouTube channel! Very fun, fantastic, hilarious and catchy from Berwyn’s musical maestros! See you all this Sat. in the Sven Sat. airlanes for Svengoolie’s big broadcast of “The Deadly Mantis” (1957) on Me-TV, David & all fellow super SvenPals of Svengoolie everywhere!

      Safety first, stay well, keep healthy, three cheers, two thumbs up, keep up the wonderful & excellent work, peace, “Hi-Keeba” & all the best to you, your family, the entire “Terror From Beyond the Dave” crowd, Sven/Rich, Doug, Kerwyn, Zalman T. Tombstone, the Sven/Me-TV production team & the entire crowd of fellow super Svengoolie SvenPals everywhere, David!

      -All the best,
      Chris Hamby
