Originally from the Halloween show of OCT 30th 1971 "Where do you go to get out of a scare", Gittle the Witch (Barbara Minkus) singing "These Wonderful Things" which should have caught on as a tune to be heard at this time of year, every year! (thanx to Tim Hollis for sending me this a while back) ENJOY!

Rare footage from "Curiosity Shop" -- dancing with Flip as he sings Hoagy Carmichael's "Huggin' and Chalkin'." This was the last episode of the series, taped in September or October of 1971.

So grateful for Pamelyn's generosity with the rarities!

A personal photo taken on the set of "Curiosity Shop" with John Levin, Kerry MacLane, Flip the Hippo, and the welfare worker who tutored John, Kerry, and me.

Tomorrow: A very rare clip from "Curiosity Shop."

Looking forward to the publication of your autobiography, Pamelyn Ferdin!

Finally got the remaining eight Kellogg's puzzles I was missing ... I've had the other eight since they were new, although they're glued to a poster my mom made for my birthday in 1972. It's nice to have the rest of them now! - Tim Hollis

Here's an ultra-rare clip of me and the cast dancing on the 1971 premiere episode of "Curiosity Shop." My understanding is that ABC erased all the original tapes of the series a few years later so they could reuse the tape.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the only surviving footage of me singing and playing my guitar on "Curiosity Shop." It's from the premiere episode, filmed in July 1971. To me, this clip is priceless.

Did you have a View-Master as a child? They made a "Curiosity Shop" set with pictures from an episode we did about flight.

Earlier today somebody asked if I played the guitar on "Curiosity Shop." Here's your answer.

Pamelyn Ferdin recently stopped by our page, she's clearly in a nostalgic mood as she prepares to publish her memoirs. We can't wait!

An announcement that I hope will be of some interest: I have been very busy lately. What have I been up to? I've been writing my memoirs! Yes, it's true. I figu...red I'd better do it now before I forget everything! I'm working with my good friend and co-writer Richard Riis. It’s hard work, so please forgive us if it takes a while to finish writing it. I started working at the age of three and did more than 200 TV episodes, about two dozen theatrical and TV movies, and who knows how many commercials, and that’s just before I was out of my teens. It’s so hard to remember them all. I then had a very rewarding second career as a registered nurse, and I am very proud of my third career as an advocate for animal rights. I'm proud of all my careers, actually, but it hasn't always been a happy life. In fact, there has been a great deal of pain and heartache along with the way. I don't want to give away everything before we've even finished the book, but here's a little something I can tell you: when you saw me crying on a TV show, as I seemed to do an awful lot, I wasn't always acting. Anyway, enough for now. I'll keep you posted on our progress, and I hope you'll want to read my story when it's published. Thanks! Pamelyn
