It's time for a Snoop Sisters Saturday Night Halloween Countdown Special!
"The Snoop Sisters" were only on for what is considered one season, and there were only six episodes total, but those six episodes stretched from December 18, 1972 until March 19, 1974.
"A Black Day For Buebeard" was the last of the episodes!
The special guest star for this episode was Mr. Vincent Price.
For a couple of older ladies, "The Snoop Sisters" are a barrel of laughs! That's Helen Hayes as Ernesta Snoop, and Mildred Natwick as Gwendolyn Snoop Nicholson! They're in costume because they are headed for a movie premiere, a tribute to their friend, the classic horror star Michael Bastion.
Michael Bastion makes a melodramatic entrance after a hearse drives up to the front of the theatre and they unload a coffin with him inside.
Always perfect timing, Michael's wife Amanda as played by Tammy Grimes, has just let him know that she has filed for a divorce!
In 1966, Tammy had her own TV show, "The Tammy Grimes Show," but it only lasted for six episodes.
Michael goes to the restroom to check his makeup and when he gets back to his seat, he finds out that somebody has just stabbed his wife to death!
Michael gets arrested obviously, and now it's up to the Snoop Sisters to untangle the whole mess, starting with getting him out of jail.
These two are so cute together, it's a real shame the series didn't last longer.
Just like Vincent Price, Michael Bastion is also a supreme chef, so Gwendolyn arranges for him to make her lunch because they need to keep him distracted for a couple of hours. He wines and dines her, and she gets pretty drunk after about four bottles of very expensive wine. It's all quite humorous!
This is a great shot and as good a place as any to let you know that some of the other awesome cast members included names like.........
David (The Big Lebowski) Huddleston, and.......
.......One of THE best comedians of all time, Mort Sahl.
