Before Tulsan Gailard Sartain joined the cast of the "Hee Haw" TV show and acted in movies, he was Dr. Mazeppa Pompazoidi on the late night weekend show "The Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting." The show, shown locally for three years starting in 1970, starred Jim Millaway, aka Sherman Oaks, and Gary Busey, who went by Teddy Jack Eddy, whose own manic presence added to the sketch show that was always unpredictable.

On Gailard's birthday today, Sept. 18, we wanted to share some photos we found in the Tulsa World Archive.
