As mentioned elsewhere here, there was pamphleteering and harassment from certain "religious" groups against DS back in the 1960s.  It just wasn't given the kind of press it would be given today.  Back then, the media took the line that anyone in those churches was a kook and nobody cared.

Supposedly, Dr Joyce Brothers went on a talk show and claimed that DS promoted "alienation," whatever the hell THAT means.

It was quite a decade...

They did have some very cool photos on, or sometimes inside, the covers.

In just how many stories was "Inna-gadda-da-vida" used as an evil Satanic incantation??? Oh dear, the poor pastor in the thread above would flee shrieking in horror... could it be ... SATAN?

If your connection is fast enough to allow you to watch Youtube, that allows you to watch the DS Minisodes.  The last time I checked they were well into 1897.  I think all of 1967, 1795, and 1968 is there.  Each ep is pared down to 9 minutes or so but it does help you get your fix when you really need it.

Best wishes,

If you keep checking Amazon Vendor for your target volumes, you can often get them around $25 apiece including postage.  I'm talking about NEW sets here, not USED.  But you have to check.  When I was shopping for them actively I just checked once a month or so.

Very cute.  I could have done without the nonstop musical track which sometimes drowned out Depp's delivery.  Who mixes this stuff?

In the 1930s this type of agitated scoring became known as ... wait for it ... Mickey Mousing.

I take it Depp is currently filming this one?  It would seem highly dubious that the 2011 release date for Depp Shadows is going to happen...

The panel was focused on the Gold Key reissue, and that's supposed to be big news?

Golly.  We live in a strange world.

Perhaps sample pages of the "art" were shown and those attending quickly decided they needed to find another way of spending their valuable time at a very crowded, packed convention with some pretty major high-profile presentations on tap....

Ugh!  Witchcraft and Satanism are NOT the same thing!  The I Ching comes from ancient China and was already over a thousand years old at the time of Christ's birth.  It has zero to do with the Christian religion or its putative opponents.

The Twilight series is thinly veiled propaganda for the author's hardcore Mormon moralism.

Will these religious fanatics EVER have a close encounter with the real world???

Don't ask me.  Just reporting the story here.  I don't personally listen to this kind of music.

I did think it was very cute that my buddy heard it in a store and thought of me.

"Julia," if that's supposed to be her, seems to have been derived from a still of Grayson as Pepe in "Satan in High Heels"!

And "Angelique" looks more like Samantha--the DS Samantha.

The Twilight Zone figures have real style about them.  I guess that's the assignment they give their artists who actually have talent.  Love the copy of the little devil box from that Shatner episode.

This is fascinating.  Many thanks, Midnite.  I'd love to see Sy's photos from the work on the 1995 sets.

I would have suggested a scene between Maggie Collins and Hoffman from the 1st week of Parallel Time 1970.  Maggie asks where Ange's bedroom was and Hoffman looks as if she's remembering seeing God and says something like "it faced the sea... the sun always seemed so much bright there..." And Maggie snaps, "Only you could turn an answer to a question into a testimonial."

I think it shows both actresses at the top of their game...

Dear fans, a friend emailed me this track by "King Geedorah featuring Mf. Doom," I presume they are rap/hip-hop artists.  He sent it to me because the song features the original DS title theme prominently samped throughout the short song.   The track name seems to be "The final hours":

For what it's worth... a fan who helped run GH's revived fan club in the late 1970s (the club which published Shades of Grayson) told me that GH had been approached to attend some of the conventions of that time, which were I think organized by a woman named Barb who is no longer involved in fandom.  Apparently GH felt very nervous about being around big crowds of enthusiastic fans and that was why she hesitated to agree and ultimately never did attend a fan event.  When a dinner in GH's honor was organized in '82 (the "Grayson Gathering"), she was very particular about the length of the guest list and whittled it down until it was only about 15 people, I think.

In the original edition of the DS Almanac, they print from an interview somebody did (which I was never able to track down) where GH described doing a pub appearance alongside JF at some point in the late Sixties and how the police cordon gave way and there was this surge of screaming, semi hysterical fans towards the car where GH and JF was sitting.  Grayson commented something like "I'm an old war-horse, but THAT frightened me!"

So, I personally think that if GH were around today, it's unlikely we would be seeing her at the fan conventions.  I imagine her in blissful retirement, happily tending her flowers at her estate.

Thank you so much, Midnite.  You are truly a Lioness amongst Scribes!
