Pamela Voorhees

Saturday Frights: Pamela Voorhees Is Doin’ It The Best She Can

Pamela Voorhees. The name should conjure up images of a distraught but loving Mother. In addition to a grisly drive for punishment against Camp Crystal Lake as well as its counselors. And while I certainly admit that she perhaps crossed the line, I must say there is part of me that feels sorry for Pamela.

Of course I should add that I also feared the likes of Pamela Voorhees. Which is certainly one of the reasons I avoided heading to summer camp. Ever. Not to mention worries of the types of wildlife one might bump into while attending camp. Like snakes…and eels.

By all means I was a strange and lonely child. Having said all of that however it is a fact that Pamela Voorhees is an icon of horror. You don’t have to just take my word for it however. I’m willing to bet that friend to The Retroist and myself, the talented Travis Falligant would back up my statement. I would direct you to take a look at his Halloween coloring contest page featuring none other than Pamela from 2016.

It was Travis in fact that was kind enough to share this humorous video the other day. Combining the theme song from the 1988 hit TV show Just the Ten of Us with the…antics…of Mrs. Voorhees. Perhaps an alternate world’s intro to a different Friday the 13th television show?

I would warn that if you’ve not seen 1980’s Friday the 13th for yourself. Everything in the video below is a SPOILER!

A big thanks once again to Travis for the heads up on this video.

Now that you’ve seen what a Pamela Voorhees sitcom might look like. How about checking out this commercial for the series premier of Just the Ten of Us?


I bet you Saturday Frights fans might find this interesting. Three of the daughters from Just the Ten of Us made appearances in the Nightmare on Elm Street film series!
