Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

No reviews, be the first!

Believe it or not, I remember the TV series, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! – the 1980s version with Jack Palance that is, not the 1940s original with Robert Ripley himself. And now Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is taking over the world with its museums of oddities – not bad for one man’s obsession with the curiosities of the world.

Robert Ripley began his career as a cartoonist, doing sports cartoons and subjects such as people running backwards – clearly he always had a unique take on life. His own curiosity took him traveling around the world in search of the strange and interesting and, when he began to tour North America with a stage show of amazing stories and objects, people flocked to hear him speak.
