The Strange Dr. Weird


THE STRANGE DR. WEIRD The Strange Dr. Weird was a radio program broadcast on Mutual from 1944 to 1945. Sponsored by Adam Hats, the drama is notable in part because it was a sister series to The Mysterious Traveler , both in theme and its narrator, Maurice Tarplin, who was also the creepy voice of the Mysterious Traveler. Many of the scripts were condensed 15 minute versions of scripts originally broadcast on The Mysterious Traveler . To the accompaniment of an organ. Spooky, strange Tarplin introduced each episode: Adam's Hats presents The Strange Dr. Weird . "Good evening. Come in, won't you? Why, what's the matter? You seem a bit nervous." The closing line never changed: "Perhaps you'll drop in on me again soon? I'm always home. Just look for the house on the other side of the cemetery...the house of Dr. Weird!" The 29 episodes were produced and directed by Jock MacGregor and written by Robert A. Arthur, who also scripted for The Mysterious Traveler .
