Stan Lee on "To Tell the Truth"

This has been on youtube for a while, but it sure is interesting to see Stan in a younger man's clothes, not too long after he wrote most of the stories he's famous for.

I remember watching that show and the Gong Show too....

I love the psychelic set design and the corny banter along w/the weird "da da da" easy listening muzak!

their questions seem so lame. Then you consider that all of the characters we know and love were pretty new and back then, not many adults read comics.

That beard is something else.

Even before he spoke you could tell him by the smug look on his face when his affidavit was being read.

I love him.

There have been some crappy films based on marvel comics lately where the high point is seeing Lee's cameo. I especially enjoyed the one in Hulk where he played a security guard along with Lou Ferrigno.

LB – it sure is weird, but it’s fun in a goofy kinda way.

Arkonbey – I thought the same thing. Also, they’re confusing comic strips and comic books

Dean - Stan has good presence; too bad they didn’t do one with Jack Kirby. (They didn’t did they?)

Don't think Jack was in there.

I was the only one in the theater laughing my ass off at that scene in the wedding. The kids were asking me why it was so funny. I liked the conceipt that he wouldn't be on the invite list.
