Paul Lynde Meets KISS

Center square Paul Lynde (RIP) hosted his own Halloween variety special on ABC back in 1976. It featured the debut network TV performance of KISS along with guest stars like Roz "Pinky Tuscadero" Kelly, Florence Henderson, Tim Conway and Margaret Hamilton reprising her Wicked Witch of the West role from The Wizard of Oz.

Not surprisingly, the show was a wonderfully garish trainwreck. Check out this clip of KISS performing "King of the Night Time World" for a taste.

....and the whole show's now available on DVD. Yes, I watched the whole thing. No, I'm not sure why. It certainly wasn't for Roz "Pinky Tuscadero" Kelly (as she's billed), that's for sure.
