Celebrate the spooky season with Svengoolie's Halloween BOOnanza, starting Oct. 1!

It's all treats, no tricks, with an often-requested movie, a season premiere and Sven's first-ever one-hour primetime special!

Halloween has been Svengoolie's season for years now, but this year the party is busting out of the coffin all month long! 

It starts with a shriek on October 1st when we kick off with a movie that still haunts the nightmares of MeTV viewers to this day... Trilogy of Terror! We've heard over the years how many of you were terrified by the Zuni doll growing up, so he's finally getting the Svengoolie treatment!

The night is going to be so packed with spooky goodies that we had to start the party an hour early! Svengoolie on Oct. 1 will be showing Trilogy of Terror starting at 7P | 6C.

Following the classic horror anthology, tune in for Svengoolie's biggest adventure yet in Svengoolie Uncrypted. In his first-ever one-hour primetime special, the coolest of the ghouliest escapes his dungeon to journey far and wide, meeting new friends and having new adventures along the way. You won't want to miss this look at Svengoolie's career over more than four decades... and especially the crypt-shaking special reveal at the end! Catch Svengoolie Uncrypted Saturday, Oct. 1 at 9P | 8C.

Following the special, the red tuna of terror swims back to the screen with the Sventoonie season two premiere! Sventoonie and his "blob of the macabre" co-host Blob E. Blob are celebrating the season with a special one-hour premiere episode starting Saturday, Oct. 1 at 10P | 9C.

American Pie 🥧 (1971)sung by
Don McLean a classic song.
The Day The Music Died is one
of the Lyrics in the song called
American Pie .What does it mean when Don McLean sings the words the day the music died in the song American Pie?
He's talking about the day Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Richie Valens died in a plane crash on their way to a concert. Those three rockers were the big three of the Rock n' Roll music scene back in the 50's. The day and the way they died was tragic. That's why McLean called it "the day the music died".
