These hosts demonstrated a terrific amount of creative energy, some building their own sets and writing songs and skits to parody the schlock films of the 1950's. With the availability of internet streaming services, I doubt that we'll see these hosts again.
I admit to watching "Svengoolie" from time to time (http://svengoolie.com/ ), and he has much of the old spark, but it's probably just nostalgia now.
A good read for baby boomers, and TV history buffs.
