Attic > You Asked For It Volume 2 Classic TV

A wonderful snapshot of what Americans were curious about in the 50s, "You Asked For It" debuted in 1950 and continued offering its special "believe-it-or-not" brand of entertainment on ABC until 1959. Attempts were made to revive the show in the 1980s and 90s, but were unsuccessful in capturing the wide-eyed wonder and innocence of the original series. Each week for nearly a decade, inquiring viewers from all over the country wrote in requesting to see the strange and bizarre. The show's producers delivered it all, from the sublime to the ridiculous, the heart-lifting to the heart-stopping, and everything in between!

Episode 1: Pin-up models that come to life; award-winning canaries; Hawaiian cowboys; and an "Our Gang" cast reunion!

Episode 2: A race between an abacus and an electric calculator; phony spiritualists exposed; Calypso Joe; and TV wrestler Gorgeous George using his brains!

Episode 3: Nevarre the Fire-Eater; touring the homes of Hollywood Stars; Mr. America; Aunt Nelly of Knott's Berry Farm; World Champion horseshoe pitching; and Buddy Ebsen dances with sister Vilma!

Episode 4: Maldo the Escape Artist; a German Oompah Band; milking poisonous snakes; world's largest collection of miniatures; and a recreation of the Sullivan/La Savant fight in Paris!
