DC Celebrities & TV Commercials

These great local celebrities were the staple of our early morning, Saturday morning and afterschool television. How many of them do you remember?

Friday/Saturday Night Horror Show Hosts? There was the Great Zucchini on WDCA Channel 20, Sir Graves Ghastly (and his unmistakable laugh?) on WTOP Channel 9, Count Gore De Vol on WDCA 20, and Ghost Host on WBFF Channel 45. WTTG Channel 5 briefly had Shock Theater, but no host.
