I need confirmation of a little kid memory. There was a show I remember as “Monster Story” from the early ’70s. The title is probably wrong because I have researched it and found nothing. Then again, it could have been a show that was cancelled quickly and I just happened to see it. I’m pretty sure it was an anthology show and probably not on NBC, since I remember it as another network’s answer to “Night Gallery“. That leaves CBS or ABC in prime time, around 1972 or 73, if I am at all correct.
I don’t remember any details of episodes or even if there was more than one, but for some reason, a TV horror anthology called “Monster Story” sticks with me. Anyone?

UNK SEZ: Thanks for writing in, Raul! If you switch out the word “Monster” with “Ghost” you’ll end up with the excellent anthology show GHOST STORY which premiered in exactly 1972! After 13 episodes GHOST STORY changed its name to CIRCLE OF FEAR and lasted nine more episodes. I am happy to tell you that currently all of the episodes are available on YouTube and you can read about a few of my favorite episodes HERE. I hope I’m right, if not, the show is still very much worth checking out!
