Kids' Comedy Theater
September 9, 1972 - March 3, 1973

After the end of Rusty Nails' very successful weekday morning series (see Rusty Nails' Cartoons), he became host of this program, a series of kid-friendly movies from the 1940s-1960s.  The program was stretched-out over a two-and-a-half-hour slot, to allow Rusty time to perform his clown acts and talk about the day's movie.

This was Rusty Nails' last regular appearance on Portland television. Following this, he returned to performing live before audiences around the country.

On December 23, 1972, in this time slot, Rusty Nails was the local host for coverage of the "Santa Claus Lane Parade," from Hollywood, California. 

Some of the movies that aired during the run of this series include:
