So, who were America's great heroes in 1951 (at least according to Fawcett Comics)?
Look, those of you with your quaint and silly fear of clowns...please. That is nothing compared to the terror caused by puppets--especially magician puppets!!!
The Great Foodini (with his assistant, Pinhead) was one of the earliest children's shows. They first appeared on The Adventures of Lucky Pup, but for some unfathomable reason, they proved more popular, and took over the show!! See, they killed Lucky Pup (probably!)!
Here, you can watch an entire episode...just don't blame me if you can't sleep for a week or so:
Thank you for the nightmares, CBS!
Apparently, Foodini and Pinhead (Pinhead!!! Are you listening!! PINHEAD!! AHHHHHH) proved popular, and quickly became masters of all primitive early 1950s media.
They had records:
After their series at Continental Comics died, they proved their evil by coming back from to dead to infest Fawcett Comics, in a series that actually lasted longer than the television show!!
Sorry, man...puppets freak me out!!!!
Foodini #1-4 appeared in 1950. Pinhead and Foodini #1-4 appeared in 1951-1952. This explains why you're parents are so frakked up. The ad appeared in Worlds Beyond #1 (1951)
