Dr. Paul Bearer

Dr. Paul Bearer hosted the shows Shock Theatre, Creature Feature, Fright Theatre, and Horror, Inc. from the 1960s to the 1990s in the Florida area. Known for his puns, visual gags, and commercial spoofs, he was a beloved fixture for children of all ages for many decades.

Dr. Bearer ended each episode with the saying, "Until next week, fright fans.... I'll be LURKING for you...". He also owned his own hearse, with his catchphrase on the back, which he used to drive to personal appearances.

Dick Bennick, who played Dr. Paul Bearer, passed away on February 18, 1995.

Here are some clips from various years as presented on his 20th Anniversary Special:

I knew Dr. Paul Bearer (Dick Bennick) personally. He was a WTOB radio DJ in my hometown of Winston-Salem, NC.

I was in a band. We played at is Hi-Fi Club dances. He was also a one of the MCs at the Carolina Theater kiddie shows.

I made a tribute video for him on Facebook:
