Spencer, Tracy and Kong!
19 November 2000 | by gazzo-2See all my reviews

I remember this show very fondly, it came on right after 'Far Out SpaceNuts' on CBS Sat. Mornings in '75-76. Basically it was the same old thing-you got to see them do the Scooby doo routine with co-star monsters Marty Engels or whomever with a guy(Bob Burns) in an ape suit. I kid you not, as kids me and my two brothers were Sure that it was a real ape! The show was easy to take, well intentioned and fun. I have NOT seen it since, but it hangs in the memory quite well.

*** outta ****, not bad.
