Its that time of year again Sammie!  Its time for  our annual viewing of The Paul Lynde Halloween Special!

The Paul Lynde Halloween Special! was  broadcast October 29th, 1976 on ABC.  It featured guest star Margaret Hamilton in her first and only reprisal of her role as The Wicked Witch of the West and guest starred Billie Hayes as Witchiepoo from H.R. Pufnstuf, Tim Conway, Roz (Pinky Toscadaro) Kelly, Florence Henderson,the rock band KISS, Billy Barty, and yes even Betty White! PLUS an un-billed surprise appearance by Donny and Marie Osmond! (And there is nothing scarier than Mormons on Halloween!.)

So lets do the REAL time warp and travel back to 1976 and the gay legendary comedic actor Paul Lynde as he makes everyone Halloween just a little bit homo before it got trendy.
