    Bill Cosby did a routine about listening to scary radio shows when his parents were out, specifically Inner Sanctum (the moment the narrator closed that creaking door, little Cos KNEW somebody was in the house) and Lights Out. He actually did the Chicken Heart, which grew, crawled into the hallway, and rang for the elevator (“Fourth floor. AIEEE!”). Up to now I thought the Chicken Heart was just a comic invention.
