Because Sven’s coronary condition renders him unable to take part in the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” he’s dreamed up a challenge of his own, and has made matching donations to both the ALS Association and the American Heart Association.
Hilarous! Without a doubt THE BEST of any bucket challenge I’ve seen! Leave it to Svengoolie to come up with something this funny and totally unexpected. Thank God he didn’t have VHS tapes poured on his head.
Love Svengoolie!! That was great! Can’t wait to see you at next years Horror Flashback weekend 🙂
Sven is the greatest…I knew that prankster had a heart of gold.
Wonderful, Sven. You still found a way to participate. Yes it would truly be great to see Michael Myers, Freddy Kruger, et. Al. In costume doing the challenge.
Somehow I think I knew what would come out of that bucket! Really enjoyed this!
Too funny! Love it! Bless your heart, Sven (and the rest of you, too.)
Sven, you are so clever and funny. So happy I discovered your program on Saturday night.
P.S. Would love to see you without your make-up. Will you ever appear that way?
I have to admire Svengoolie’s original and humorous take on this challenge.
Unfortunately, I myself had a serious accident and broke three ribs, two backbones and injured a lung. So I understand when Svengoolie mentioned his necessity for “cold” chicken or was it turkey? Whatever method I as always wish you the best and thanks for making something as this even more interesting.
Had a small fright lately when they moved your channel, luckily I still receive my Saturday Night Fright Fest. Thank You so much. It only hurts when I laugh, which is difficult not to when watching your show.
Sven – I knew you wouldn’t be chicken to take the challenge! And thanks for setting such a good example with your generosity.
I ate a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which I’m sure is very heart-healthy food. I loved your Rubber Chicken Bucket Challenge!
Awesome Sven!!! The bucket of Rubber Chicken’s. Your a Great
If Bozo doesn’t take the challenge, he’ll have to donate to ALS $50.00, and Schwinn bike, and lots of other prizes…
Aw Svengoolie 🙂 your so wonderful. Take care and see you on Saturday for another great movie 🙂
This was great. Classic response to what is becoming a stale internet trend.
Loved the ‘Bucket 6″ reference.
Well done Sven. That was outstanding.
Thank goodness you’re not a farmer, or it would have to be hog slop bucket challenge!
Sven – You are such a treasure! I am 54 and never heard of your unparalelled (sp?) weekly show…until MeTV showed up over-the-air in 2009 (?) here in Phoenix…your clever comedy and antics are the highlight of my week, complete with a great classic movie and loads of Svenformation about the movies and the stars. You have added much happiness and laughter to my life…God Bless You!
Great bucket challenge, Sven! I’ll bet all those rubber chickens felt even more bone-chilling than the ice water would have!
Marilyn R.: Your wishing to see Sven without his makeup reminds me of an old MUNSTERS episode in which Eddie idolizes a local horror movie TV show host named Zombo (played by Louis Nye). Eddie gets a chance to be a guest on his show, and is utterly disappointed to find that Zombo is just an actor in makeup, and not a real monster. When Eddie exposes Zombo on the air, he is acutally greatful, since he always hated this gig and can now return to his first love as an actor: Shakespeare! Eddie then tells Herman, whose feelings had been hurt because of his son’s idolization of Zombo, that he, his dear old dad, remains his true idol and hero. This news, of course, delights Herman! Does anybody else remember that episode?
I just love your take on this cause.You are a funny, funny person!!!!
I recently finished watching the Munsters complete series box set. In addition to the Zombo episode, there’s the episode “Just Another Pretty Face.” Due to an accident in Grandpa’s lab, Herman’s face becomes disfigured, at least by Munsters’ standards. Fred Gwynne appears without the Munster makeup on his face, for most of the episode. Near the end of the episode, Herman is hit by lightning, which restores his original facial features.
SPOILER ALERT: It’s rumored that Svengoolie appears on his show as different characters, such as Judge Jerry (my personal favorite), or in commercial parodies, without wearing his Svengoolie makeup. Of course, that’s an unsubstantiated rumor.
Sven/Rich, You are the headliner of the day in the Robert Feder column at http://www.robertfeder.com. “Broadcast museum to honor Rich ‘Svengoolie’ Koz”. The article begins with, “The great Rich Koz will be honored for his 35 years as “Svengoolie” October 10 at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, 360 North State Street (Chicago).” “…an interview with the Chicago television icon (I would add the words “national and international”), the unveiling of a Svengoolie exhibit including his original coffin and other artifacts from the set…”. Robert Feder has been covering the Chicago area media beat for almost as long. 34 years. Feder knows what he’s talking and writing about! Great job, Sven/Rich!
I’m going to try my best to attend the event at the MBC! I don’t know if I will spring for the VIP treatment, but I will certainly try my best to be in attendance for this honor. Congratulations, Rich!
Sven/Rich/All, I agree with BlueCat. I’m also going to try to attend the MBC event. It ought to be a blast!
Dale: I do remember that episode of the Munsters, One episode I loved was “a visit from Johann” Hermans long lost brother who was put together in Transilvania and really cound not speak except to make sounds, and had a crush on Lilly. It aired on the 2nd season, funny stuff
Hey….Why won’t you use my joke for joke of the week?
Awesome! Send me a bucket of rubber chickens and I’m in. Heck, Just send me one and I’ll dump it in a bucket of ice water-(no coronary problems here… yet).
So glad to have you on MeTV. Grew up watching you Saturdays on Ch 32, and thought you were a childhood thing lost to me in adulthood. Now my kids are getting the same wonderful experience I had through childhood.
Sven/ Rich- That is the best ALS challenge yet. You are the best. Your show is so fun- I love the old movies- I definitely would not see all these movies without this show. I love all the info. about the actors and production companies. I love the fake commercials. My favorite part is when Sven cuts into the movie for a joke. Mostly I love that you appreciate your fans.
Nice chicken bucket challenge Sven. Good thing you went with a bucket of rubber chickens instead of a 12 piece. Less mess and no trans fat. Looking forward to the Mad Ghoul tonight.
Your show is always great. Thanks for your unique brand of Sventertainment!
Are you going off
dear swen so proud of you my family also did the challenge and I was unable to participate also that was ingenious love watching your show and cant wait to see if your challenge is accepted stay well
I understand. still funny though. ^^
That was great! Its should be rubber chickens instead of ice water.
You should have thrown a challenge to Tombstone, Kerwyn and Derrwood.
Right on Svennie Mac!
Nothing like getting some rubber chickens all over yourself.
Great job and good for you! Congrats to Sven on 35 years! So glad that you made it and please take care of yourself. We were scared when we heard about your heart troubles!
It is ironic or Icelandic that my friends tell me that I should take the challenge because they tell me it would be just one more thing that is over my head. I wish I understood what they mean by that statement….
Rubber chickens! HAHAHAHA!! Only Svengoolie, right? That is too funny!
