Ripley's Believe It or Not

The first Believe it or Not TV series, a live show hosted by Ripley, premiered March 1, 1949. Shortly after the 13th episode, Ripley died May 27, 1949 of a heart attack and was replaced by Robert St. John who served as host until the series ended on October 5, 1950. Prior to that TV series, Ripley had hosted a series of Believe it or Not! theatrical short films dating back to the 1930s.

Ripley's Believe it or Not! aired from 1982 to 1986 on the American ABC Network. Character actor Jack Palance hosted the popular series throughout its run, while several different co-hosts appeared from season to season, including Palance's daughter, Holly Palance, actress Cathie Shirriff, and singer Marie Osmond. The 1980s series reran on the Sci-Fi Channel during the late 1990s.
