Shock Theatre was a late night TV show in Dayton, Ohio from 1972 to 1985. The program played low budget horror movies with local cut-outs that featured skits, commercial parodies, and satire. For a few years, the show was called "Saturday Night Dead," since the program followed Saturday Night Live on the local station.
The host was Dr. Creep (aka Barry Hobart -- www.drcreep.com (at the Internet Archive's WayBack Machine). Various characters shared the screen with Dr. Creep over the years; various producers were responsible for the on-screen chaos.
The Shock Theatre years covered on this site are from 1977 to 1980, when OBIEYOYO and other NIGHT VISION PUPPETS worked on-screen with the Creeper, and John Higgins was producer. All available segments are available on YouTube at www.youtube.com/shocktheatre.
