RIP SID NOEL 1929-2020

Another of my favorite horror hosts has died.

Noel will always be remembered as "Morgus The Magnificent" to those that grew up with him.

Morgus debuted in New Orleans on WWL TV in 1959 and the rest is history. Morgus even made a movie entitled "The Wacky World Of Dr. Morgus" and I saw that film many, many years ago and enjoyed it.

He would show old movies on his kate night TV show and always had his sidekick "Chopsly" along for the fun. Noel made his Morgus character larger than life and ws something very different in the world of horror movie hosts. He even recorded a song called "Morgus The Magnificent" which was released as a single, and I am proud to say I own that one.

He passed away on Aug. 28th, 2020 at the age of 90. His legacy will continue to live with his many, many fans.
