Ripley's Believe It or Not

Robert Ripley made whole series of these shorts in the 30s, sometimes aired by TCM. I like this one.

There was also a 30 min radio series called Ripley's Believe It Or Not in the 30s.

I didn't know that. There are also some Ripley museums. One is in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, where we often go on vacation. And another one is in St. Augustine (or used to be—I guess it is still there?). That might have been the first one. I remember visiting there as a kid and being fascinated.

I keep thinking about taking the kids to the Ripleys Believe it or Not Museum. I think all the neat things to see would be AWESOME!!

It's very interesting to go. I still have my booklet I got when we went through Orlando when we were first moving here in '04.
