’Count Scary and Me’: Former WDIV director reflects on taping ‘Scary’ specials
His famous catch phrase was “Ooooh, that’s scaary!” Count Scary would rank the scary level of each movie with a scale of pants, referring to scaring your pants off. Little did I know, that 20 years later, I would be a Director at WDIV working on the Count Scary shows. Suddenly he receives a phone call from one of his “fine boys” (Tom DeLisle) that he was needed at the studio. Tom DeLisle was such a great humorist and cheerleader; heck, we all got our own official Scary Jackets. One Tom is gone; we lost Tom DeLisle 2 years ago.
