Retro Records: Groovie Goolies (1970)

Drak Pack
In my youth when it came to horror related cartoons, for my money nothing could top Hanna-Barbera’s 1980 Saturday morning cartoon series the Drak Pack!

Although my love for that particular TV show didn’t mean I wasn’t ready at the drop of the hat to watch anything that had some connection to something supernatural, whether that be Scooby-Doo, Goober and the Ghost Chasers, or of course the Groovie Goolies. Although in my neck of the woods it was never on at a regular time, it was syndicated of course but it would always air on a Sunday afternoon…well…sometimes it would air on a Sunday afternoon. It was a gigantic letdown to get home from church and plop down in front of the TV, anxiously waiting for the tube to warm up and see…Wagon Train.

Wolfie actually kind of scares me.

In 1970 RCA Victor produced this Groovy Goolies LP featuring ten songs:
Save Your Good Lovin’ For Me, Bumble Goolie, We Go So Good Together, Frankie, Goolie Get-Together (Theme), First Annual Semi-Formal Combination Celebration Meet-the-Monster Population Party, Spend Some Time Together, Cling, Clang, Goolie Garden, One, Two, Three.

Sadly this is the only song I could find online but it’s an enjoyable bit of fun and Drac, Frankie, and Wolfie should help get you into the Halloween spirit.
