Hidden Jerry G. Bishop Svengoolie Treasures Unearthed at G-FEST!

One of the most surprising moments at Svengoolie’s recent appearance at G-FEST (story HERE) was when a long-time Svengoolie fan named Tony Kapsis shared  some vintage items from one of Jerry G. Bishop’s public appearances in the early 1970’s.

The original Svengoolie had appeared at a local store and young Tony was there to meet his idol. He not only kept some special “Svengoolie banners” (NOTE TO RICH KOZ: I want you to start selling one of your own!) but also the newspaper page that announced the event!

Tony explained that he was every bit as quirk-witted in person as he was on TV. When Sven asked him how he wanted him to personalize his autograph, Tony said, “Sign it to Tone.”

SVENGOOLIE: “What?”

TONY: “To Tone.”

SVENGOOLIE: Oh, I’m sorry…I’m Tone deaf!”

The moment was sealed with Sven hitting him with a rubber chicken!

As the current and most prolific Svengoolie, Rich Koz, was both a fan and friend of his predecessor, you could tell he really enjoyed seeing these lost artifacts!
