Sir Cecil Creape

Sir Cecil Creape hosted Creature Feature in Nashville, Tennessee in the 1970s and 1980s.

Here is a clip of his Halloween episode from 1971:

I lived in Manchester TN from 1970-75 and found Sir Cecil Creape when I was in Jr. High. LOVED this guy. He always had bad movies on and we'd watch all the way through to see what he'd come up with next. Those days are long gone and they just don't make them like this any more.

I was born APril 1960 and started watching Sir Cecil Creape/Creepe as soon as it came on. I was always a horror film fan and I remember talking to my BFF back then and watching it. We all just LOVED him. Wish he could have lived on forever. I can only find that he died in Jan 1994 on the IMDB. I have shown clips from youtube of Cecil from "Creature Feature" to my husband and he adores them (hubby is originally from MA so didn't grow up with this show). Wish there were more of them to be found online... entire episodes. Those were the good ole days, huh?

I was close to teenager wnen Creape began coming on. I was 9 years older than my little brother and he was (for some unknown reason) wholly and completely terrified of Sir Cecil Creape. It was as if he was drawn to the adrenaline thrill of the horror of seeing/hearing him, as he would stay up, at 2 or 3 years old, with me to watch it come on. I would build it up for half an hour during the news and sure enough when Sir Cecil said, "Did someone call?" he would scream bloody murder and run from the room physically convulsing!! As a prickish teen I loved it! I could excise him from my bedroom (or anywhere I didn't want him around) by simply mimicking the phrase - and OFF HE WOULD RUN (I do good impressions.) The funny thing is when he tried to repeat the phrase in his undeveloped baby language it came out as "Kee kee call?" Sir Cecil Creape became known in our house, and far beyond since to our friends and family, as Kee Kee Call.

And just this week my little brother texted me (he is a school administrator and seldom has time to text) to let me know he had just had a meeting with a student named "______ Call." He said he wondered if he was related to Kee Kee Call...

I texted him back and said if so you would have known for you would have pissed your pants the moment he spoke!
