The Third Eye

Remember* when this blog was all about nostalgia? Like lots of people born in the late 70s, one of the things I am distinctly nostalgic for is the children's television I was exposed to as a kid. Before the advent of YouTube, indulging in that nostalgic impulse entailed a lot of musings on the lines of "remember that one show about the thing? with the kids? and the creepy music?" That show about the thing with the kids was actually The Third Eye, an anthology collecting various creepy shows from unAmerica, and it was an early staple of my Nickelodeon viewing along with Today's Special, Danger Mouse, and Mr. Wizard. Hauntological blog Toys and Techniques has a nice rundown of the series plus lots of clips here.

*I think we can all agree that it took real heroism not to make a lame joke here.
