KISS on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special

leave a comment »

In 1976, Paul Lynde hosted a Halloween special that featured the prime time television debut of KISS. Mark Hinson has a great summary here, but the setup is this:

A strange, kitschy dream that includes Margaret Hamilton (the Wicked Witch from “Wizard of Oz”), the character Witchiepoo from the drug-induced “H.R. Pufnstuf” kiddie show, the diminutive actor Billy Barty, flippin’ Florence Henderson, Donny and Marie Osmond, Betty White and, why not, Kiss.

In this scene, Paul Lynde meets KISS with Margaret Hamilton. They are treated to a performance of King of the Night Time World. Paul Lynde then sings Disco Baby with Roz Kelly, and they are later joined by Florence Henderson. You just can’t make this stuff up.
