The Witch’s Tale was a supernatural horror series created by writer-director Alonzo Deen Cole at WOR in New York. The show was carried by the Mutual network from 1931 – 1938 and featured vampires, ghosts and crawling hands – Four Fingers and a Thumb is a favorite.

The intro was as follows:

SFX: WIND BLOWS AND BELL TOLLS.

ANNOUNCER: (OVER SFX) The Witch’s Tale!

MUSIC: LEGINSKI’S ‘ORGIE AND THE SPIRITS.’

ANNOUNCER: The fascination of the eerie. Weird, blood chilling tales told by Old Nancy, the witch of Salem, and Satan, a wise black cat. They are waiting … Waiting for you … now.

NANCY: Hum-hum-hum-hum-hum. A hundred and 17 year old I be today. Yes sir, a hundred and 17 year old. Well Satan, this here nice night for one of our cheerful little bed time stories, yes? Our Satan’s got a yarn to fit just such a night as this, heh-heh-heh. Satan, tell everyone to douse their lights.

SATAN THE CAT: (YOWLS)

Wow; great start to Great Beginnings.
