Creature Features (1971–1984) was a campy Saturday-night television show on KTVU, the local Oakland TV station.
Super-deadpan original host Bob Wilkins introduced “B”-grade science fiction flicks and monster movies, as well as interviewed such notable guests as Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, actor Christopher Lee, and visual effects creator Ray Harryhausen, among many others.
After Wilkins left c. 1979, John Stanley hosted the remainder of the show’s run.
