SOME LEFTOVER TURKEY AND A JUMP ON CHRISTMAS SHOPPING ON THIS WEEK’S FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

There’s a couple of tasty helpings of turkeys and some great tips and suggestions to get your Christmas shopping going in this week’s Beta Max TV FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

Uncle Pete‘s got a great gift idea, a sinister snowman, and a giant sized problem for The Dark Vault Of Public Domain presentation of GAMMERA.  An atomic blast rouses a gigantic flying, fire-breathing turtle that sets its sights on destroying Tokyo in this debut feature for the raucous reptile. And between trailers, gift spotlights, a cartoon called the Snowman and our feature, Uncle Pete works on a size enhancement formula for an unnamed client and the experiments create a huge problem!

How about some gifts you would never want to get and maybe not even give?  Find them here in the HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE on Beaucoup Askew’s Fashion Trashin.  Cinnamon and Diamond’s guest is Roxxy Quattro who shares some interesting Christmas gift ideas. Santa pops in unexpectedly and gets a little frisky!

Did you have enough turkey on Thanksgiving day to last you for a while?  Or maybe you’re more like Ozzie and Ricky and David in THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING on The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet.  The day after Ozzie and the family have Thanksgiving dinner at a relatives, they’re convinced they have eaten enough turkey for a good long time. But Ozzie and the boys develop a craving for turkey and start searching for leftovers anywhere they can think of! (1952)

And this next helping isn’t just turkey – it’s JIVE TURKEY!  In this 1974 serving of classic blaxploitation, a Harlem kingpin finds himself and his gang in a deadly turf battle with Italian mobsters while the police close in on his operations.

And finding the right gift can be challenging especially for Jack Benny.  Join Jack and Rochester for CHRISTMAS SHOPPING on The Jack Benny Program.  Jack and Rochester go Christmas shopping and meet an assortment of interesting characters – creating more than a little humorous exasperation for all involved!. guests include Mel Blanc and Richard Deacon

Have a snack, grab some gifts and join the fun of this week’s FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies… and sometimes more than one holiday at a time!  Beta Max TV!!!

WE’RE GIVING YOU THE BIRD TODAY ON BETA MAX TV (WELL. 5 BIRDS ACTUALLY)ON THE FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE!!!

We’re talking turkey with cooking tips, eating tips, and a parade for our Thanksgiving-filled FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE this week!

Uncle Pete’s cookin’ with VIto Gold gas (and the new Vito Gold oven) as he presents UNCLE PETE’S DARK VAULT THANKSGIVING SPECIAL.  Uncle Pete hosts a turkey filled special with a Calvin and the Colonel cartoon, tips on carving and The Giant Claw (1957) about a giant destructive bird creature from another dimension.

It’s not Thanksgiving without a parade and we’ve got on in Beaucoup Askew’s Fashion Trashin presentation of the DINGLE’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE!  Cinnamon and Diamond host the 150th Dingle’s Department Store Thanksgiving Day Parade on Sunrise Blvd. in Hawlywood, Fallifornio! Hey, who doesn’t love a parade for Thanksgiving!

The trials and tribulations of cooking that bird are front and center in the Mansion Of Mystery presentation of THE RED HOUSE.  A man hides a terrible secret from his adopted daughter about a spooky house in the woods.(Edward G. Robinson) Scarlet’s Thanksgiving preparations get complicated by CJ being on a trip and Sgt. Wednesday’s interruptions.

It’s always a party for Thanksgiving when the green girl drops in and she’s heading out to make that happen on My Gal The Zombie’s THANKSGIVING SPECIAL  It’s a collection of Thanksgiving themed shorts and cartoons presented by My Gal The Zombie’s guest host friend Patricia.

And the bird’s the word – and maybe the guest – for the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES’ TURKEY DAY!  The Clampetts prepare for a big Thanksgiving dinner but Elly May decides the turkey would make a better pet than a main course! (1963)

It’s a bunch of turkeys – in a good way – for the Thanksgiving edition of the FRIDAY FUN-TIME FIVE on your home for B-movies…  and delicious bird shows!  Beta Max TV!!!

Should be pretty fun!

It’s Veterans Day and we’re joinin’ up as Triv and the gang present Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in AT WAR WITH THE ARMY on The Midnight Movie.  The team plays a nightclub duo inducted in the army where they get in one wacky scrape after another while working on an act for the base talent show..
