RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT! COLLECTION STARRING JACK PALANCE

Ripley's Believe It or Not! aired from 1982 to 1986 on the American ABC television network. Character actor Jack Palance hosted the popular series throughout its run, while three different co-hosts appeared from season to season, including Palance's daughter, Holly Palance, actress Catherine Shirriff, and singer Marie Osmond.

What began as a very successful comic strip ion 1918 became a world wide favorite for those who liked to learn about the weird and impossible.  This series dealt with some of the strangest, most unbelievable exhibits in the world.  But no matter how unbelievable….no matter how fantastic - Robert Ripley proved that these  fantastic discoveries were TRUE - BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

By 1930 his comic strip and later books had proven so popular that Ripley took his “show on the road” by way of a popular radio  series.   His radio programs remained on the air will 1948.  This was followed by a long series of movie shorts and finally came to TV in 1949 but ended in 1950 shortly after Ripley’s life ended when he suffered an heart attack.

But the legend lives on.  His books and legend lives on as new generations discover what a fascinating world we all live in.  A new movie about the live of Robert Ripley is being made starring Jim Carrey that will be released in 2012.  This unbelievable set features 59 of those rare and hard to find hour long episodes.  The quality is good to excellent (ranging 7.5 to 8).

11 DVD Set.
