Bright colours, fantastical costumes, and insane plots were a hallmark of shows from the sixties and Gerri and Eugenia talk about them in this episode! The sixties, an era of change, new freedoms, the psychedelic colour schemes and of course the music all combined to create new ways of doing things and TV was no different! With themes still relevant to our time of “women’s lib” and “diverse families”, Gerri and Eugenia talk about who could be called the first real woman super hero on television and a family that could only be called diverse and in all of the ways that you can consider! These shows of course include Batman and The Munsters, two of the iconic shows of the sixties they were fun, frivolous and fantastic. So who do they talk to about these wonderful none other than the first (in their eyes) woman super hero of TV the fabulous and sorely missed Yvonne Craig in an interview that they were lucky enough to do when she visited Australia before her death. They also talk with the one and only Eddie Munster otherwise known as Butch Patrick. They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture expo, catch them at http://www.supanova.com. au and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the rare privilege of meeting these sixties icons.
