UNCLE PETE RETURNS TO AN ALIEN INVADED DARK VAULT

Two weeks ago, we were knocked of the air by some sort of alien attack conspiracy plot thing.  But this week, we’re cutting out the middle man and bringing you an alien attack as our feature presentation.  Join UNCLE PETE as he brings you the Man Of Strongest Steel (no, not El Vato), that flying fighter from the Emerald Planet – Starman in the 1965 Sci-Fi Thriller – Attack From Space.  The Sappherions have kidnapped renowned scientist Dr. Yamanaka and are forcing him to use his new spaceship for their plan to conquer Earth.  The people of the Emerald Planet know that a plan like that ain’t no good, so they send Starman (Ken Utsui) to defend the Earth.  Originally shown as two episodes of the Starman series and also starring Minoru Takada, Chisako Hara, and Minako Yamada, it’s Attack From Space.

THE HIGH COUNCIL OF THE EMERALD PLANET

Alien evil is also afoot in The Dark Vault too.  Returning home, UNCLE PETE finds the Vault emptied except for rat buddy Dino, Milton the Tiki Mask, and Stone Dog.  With faithful Stone Dog’s help, he soon determines that the Vault was invaded by those outer space troublemakers, the Radonians.  They’ve even disrupted our hi-priced color camera!  So UNCLE PETE and Stone Dog team up to vaporize some alien butt.  But battling aliens doesn’t stop UNCLE PETE from digging up some great music videos from the 50’s Highteens, Telepathys, Hikeshu, and Rockin’ Enocky as well as some groovy trailers.

UNCLE PETE AND STONE DOG DISCOVER PROOF OF ALIEN NASTINESS

So tune in for Attack From Space and the battle for humanity (or at least UNCLE PETE’S place) this Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10PM to midnight on Binghamton’s channel 4, Sayre/Montrose’s channel 17, and Elmira/Corning/Hornell’s channel 99.  And don’t forget, we now have encore showings at midnight, 2AM, and 4AM.  So it’s all night TV and aliens in the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

AS BULLWINKLE SAID – THIS TIME FOR SURE!!!

UNCLE PETE CLEANS LAST WEEK’S CONFUSED TECHNICIAN OFF THE BRAIN-O-MATIC 3000

As you may have heard, last week the 1973 action crime drama Mean Frank and Crazy Tony was the scheduled feature presentation that UNCLE PETE had lined up on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  If you tuned in, you may have wondered why the DARK VAULT had been remodeled to look like a modest church and how UNCLE PETE had been transformed into a lively, articulate black preacher with some pretty nice robes and no fez.

Well as it turns out, that wasn’t actually THE DARK VAULT that aired last Saturday night.  And it’s all the result of a new set of hands getting involved in the magic that weekly brings THE DVOPD to your television.  It seems that a new technician was left in charge of the machine that gets us on the air and it also seems that he hasn’t yet been graced with the ability to read writin’.  And that’s how a show that had words like Sunday and Ministry in its title got switched into a time slot designated for a program with words like Dark and Vault and Public and Domain in its title.  So we killed him.  Or at least we pointed out his error.  Anyway, he won’t be doing that again.

CELEBRATE OXNARD'S BIRTHDAY WITH UNCLE PETE THIS SATURDAY!

CELEBRATE OXNARD’S BIRTHDAY WITH UNCLE PETE THIS SATURDAY!

So this week, it really will be Mean Frank and Crazy Tony with Lee Van Cleef and Tony LoBianco.  And it’ll also be a cartoon sing-a-long called Little Brown Jug and even UNCLE PETE mixing up some new flavors of Schnapps (or something).  So tune in once again, Saturday night, April 18 (OXNARD’S Birthday!!!), 2015 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in Sayre/Montrose, and channel 99 in Corning/Elmira/Hornell.  And watch for our NEW ENCORE PRESENTATIONS at midnight and again at 2AM  in case you can’t get to a TV at 10PM or maybe you missed a part or you just gotta see it again.  And celebrate OXNARD’s Birthday with an actual broadcast of the show, our BRAND NEW ENCORES, and all the usual wackiness from UNCLE PETE on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

CHANNEL 4 DONE GOTS RELIGION TONIGHT!!!

BLUE QUESTIONThose of you who tuned in to THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN this Saturday may have noticed something a little odd.  Like it appears that UNCLE PETE has become a preacher and is holding a church service instead of showing Mean Frank And Crazy Tony.  Well that’s not quite what happened.  In fact, we don;t know quite what happened.  Apparently the church services that normally air on Sunday morning are airing from 10PM til who knows when on Saturday night.  Maybe THE DARK VAULT will air on Sunday morning.  That should surprise a few unsuspecting viewers!.  Could be aliens afoot again!  We’ll get to the bottom of this.  Looks like we may be airing this week’s show next week.  Maybe we’ll have a whole new crop of viewers.  Maybe there’ll be a run on torches and pitchforks just before there’s a run on THE DARK VAULT (or maybe on the place where the cable comes from)!  I’ll share more details when I get them (if there are any more details),  Who knows – tune in Sunday morning (if you’re up) – you just might get to start off your day with a dose of UNCLE PETE and THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

MIXIN’ UP SOME SPRING TONIC – AND CRIME

UNCLE PETE MIXES UP SOME TASTY TREATS IN THE DARK VAULT DISTILLERY

UNCLE PETE MIXES UP SOME TASTY TREATS IN THE DARK VAULT DISTILLERY

Just like Granny taught us, Spring is the time for mining up a little tonic.  So this week it’s a little concoctin’ and bunch of crime in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.   Join UNCLE PETE for the 1973 crimedy spectacular Mean Frank and Crazy Tony. It stars DARK VAULT fave Lee VanCleef as mob boss Mean Frank and Tony LoBianco as Crazy Tony – a mob boss fanatic from Hoboken who idolizes Mean Frank.  Frank gets himself in prison as an alibi for a crime he’s tied up with, but Tony decides that he’s gonna spring his ideal no matter what anybody says or does to try to stop him.  The film also stars Edwige French and Romano Pupo (Vitobot’s favorite actor name from Little Rita Of The West).  Sometimes called an unofficial crime remake of My Name Is Nobody, from director Michele Lupo (Sheriff and the Satellite Kid), it’s Mean Frank and Crazy Tony.

A SELF-PROPELLED JUG

A SELF-PROPELLED JUG

     UNCLE PETE  is hard at work in THE DARK VAULT DISTILLERY developing a new flavor of schnapps (or something like that).  Having  tested and eliminated chlorine and motor oil flavors, UNCLE PETE still has a whole bunch of additives yet to try (and you can be sure there’s some bar-b-que sauce nearby).  To keep in the theme of things, UNCLE PETE also has a cartoon treat from 1947 – Little Brown Jug– a sing-a-long you can all join in on.

It’s an action packed, flavor filled night  this Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Sayre/Montrose), and channel 99 (Corning/Elmira/Hornell). So be sure to join UNCLE PETE for Mean Frank and Crazy Tony, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

UNCLE PETE, STONE DOG AND MAX VENTURE OUTDOORS AT LAKE DARK VAULT THIS WEEK

It’s more fun than an Easter Egg Hunt in a cow pasture, and with more to choose from too!  This week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN,  UNCLE PETE will bring you 2 hours of chocolate coated, pastel variety with The Best Of The Webisodes – Part 2.  As many of you long-time Dark Vaulteers may recall, in the early days of  THE DVOPD, there were a whole lotta webisodes as companion programs to the regular weekly TV features.  The term webisode comes from the Latin “Sodasi Webisorum”, which loosely translates as getting entangled with something involving carbonated beverages (or at least that’s what UNCLE PETE remembers from his high school Latin class).

A DARK VAULT EASTER BUNNY ADDS TO THE FUN

The webisode stuff is that which we didn’t have time for in our weekly programs or that we thought might make some viewer’s heads explode (we’ve adjusted for that).  And with this warm weather – above freezing even –  UNCLE PETE heads up to Lake Dark Vault to relax with Stone Dog and Max and bring you a selection of some of our favorite bits from these rarely seen creations.

To help with your Easter break travel, there’s a car safety short from 1956 called Your Safety First.  There’s a Flash Gordon episode called The Claim Jumpers from the TV series starring Steve Holland.  To help with your juvenile delinquent tendencies we have Name Unknown from the Englewood Police Department among others.  And there’s subject matter near and dear to our heart in Any Boy, USA produced by the National Women’s Christian Temperance Union.

There’s a mountain of music, a ton of trailers, a plethora of poop (in the good sense), and an appearance by our good buddy VITO GOLD.  So join UNCLE PETE as he brings you an extra large Easter Basket full of fun this Saturday, April 4, 2015 from 10PM til midnight on cable channels 4, 17, and 99 in Binghamton, Sayre, and Corning (etc.).  It’s The Best Of The Webisodes, Pt. 2 this weeks feature on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

WATCH ONE, GET ONE FREE!!! (WELL, ACTUALLY, THEY’RE BOTH FREE…)

UNCLE PETE BREAKS OUT THE SAFETY CHICKEN IN THE CRYPT THIS WEEK

UNCLE PETE BREAKS OUT THE SAFETY CHICKEN IN THE CRYPT THIS WEEK

In another week or so, Peter Cottontail will be hopping down that old bunny trail – and that’s pretty tiring.  So for a little extra entertainment and relaxation this week, we’re gonna give Mr. Cottontail and all our viewers not one, but two classic slices of cinema this Saturday night.  Join UNCLE PETE for a double dose of disaster this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN as he traipses through the uncharted corridors deep in the Dark Vault Crypt beneath the Cinema Graveyard.  The first gem stars one of our favorite scary guys – Bela Lugosi.  It’s Murder By Television.  Professor James Houghland (Charles Hill Mailes) has discovered a way to instantly broadcast television signals anywhere in the wold.  All the networks want to get their hands on this, but he won’t sell (we here in the Dark Vault discovered the original blueprints, but El Vato spilled grape juice on them and we can’t read a thing).  When the professor is murdered during a demonstration of his invention, it’s time to do a little investigatin’.  It also stars June Collyer and Huntly Gordon and, before Hattie McDaniel was forced to take parts in such obscure and minor movies as Gone With The Wind and Song Of The South, she was able to land a juicy role in this feature as Isabella the Cook.  From 1935, it’s Murder By Television.

Then we hop on down to the Bowery for another adventure with our favorite juvenile delinquents.  From 1942, it’s Let’s Get Tough.  Pearl Harbor has just been bombed, and Muggs, Danny, Glimpy and the rest of the boys want to join up with the army or navy or anybody that’ll have them and give those Japs some what for.  But they’re too young, so they decide to see what they can do around their home turf.  When a Chinese shopkeeper is murdered, the gang stumbles onto a spy ring.  And to add trouble, it looks like Danny’s brother, who was dishonorably discharged, might be mixed up in it.  Directed by Wallace Fox and starring Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, Huntz Hall, David Gorcey and Sunshine Sammy Morrison, it’s Let’s Get Tough.

INSTANT DARK VAULT CAN BE DANGEROUS

INSTANT DARK VAULT CAN BE DANGEROUS

And as difficult as it may be to believe, UNCLE PETE has reached new depths this week in the Dark Vault Crypt. He’s so far subterranean that they’re pumping air in and he’s had to bring a Rubber Safety Chicken with him just to monitor the quality of the air down there (or whatever it is that he’s actually breathing).  Will we discover the professor’s murderer?  Will the Gang break up that spy ring?  Will El Vato quit stepping on the air hose?  Tune in this Saturday night, March 28, 2015 from 10PM til midnight on channel 4 in the Grating Binghamton area, channel 17 around Sayre and Montrose, PA, and channel 99 for the Elmira/Corning/Hornell area for Murder By Television and Let’s Get Tough – our next Double Feature presentation in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
