The 1966 movie will be shown on ME-TV on Saturday night at 10 p.m. as part of the "Svengoolie" show.

With all due respect,I really don't enjoy watching the movie with all those commentaries in between plus the constant commercial breaks.I prefer to see it the tcm way uncut and no interruptions or commercials!

I agree; plus, they cut it to pieces to fit it into the timeslot.

I plan on getting the DVD for Christmas, just so I can laugh at the absurdity of it all. :lol:

Well-said. I can't stand the Svenghoulie guy anyway and his constant cutting-in spoils any entertainment value.

Sometimes Svengoolie makes me laugh, but I think I'll pass on this. It was also on this morning at 11 am. I'll just watch my own DVD. :)

I was aware of the MeTV line up, but is "Svengoolie" (SP) interrupting the regular series--or the other fantasy series on the schedule?

I've never watched Svengoolie before, i didn't know he interrupted the movie all the time. That stinks. And you guys are also right about the screen time being cut. But I really want to see it, so I'll endure it :) My dad said it was on one time earlier this year and he turned it on; it gave him fits of laughter. He turned it off after a few minutes and he says that it was the beginning, I'm guessing he saw the exploding shark part. :lol: I asked him if he was going to watch it and he said no! :D

The film is also edited for time and Sven's bit - but since it's all in good fun, it worth watching.

Yep, the movie really butchered for the Svengoolie parts. I have not watched a version this sliced up since it was syndicated in the 1970s!

I love ME TV but I think Svengoolie is really out of place compared with the rest of their programming.

I watched it and it was a lot of fun :D

Did anyone notice that we had never seen Batman without his gloves on, but when he was talking to Commish he took one off to answer? That was different.. :)
