Canceled Too Soon #119: 'The Elvira Show' (1993)

Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark, is arguably the greatest horror movie TV host of all time. But this gothic "Valley Girl" maven, played by the great Cassandra Peterson, was almost the greatest sitcom star of all time! 

"The Elvira Show," co-starring Katherine Helmond ("Soap") and Phoebe Augustine ("Twin Peaks"), starred Elvira as a small-town witch, trying to hide her magical powers from her conservative Kansas neighbors, and getting into all sorts of naughty, sexy shenanigans in the process.

Why did this hilarious sitcom have trouble finding an audience? And was it really... Canceled Too Soon? You'll find out in this week's exciting, Scarytober episode!

Give it a listen!
