“Believe It Or Not?”

A word that is 184 letters long? A three-story home built by a blind man? A man who can pick up and hold, in one hand, twelve billiard balls? Allow Mr. Robert Ripley to answer all of these burning questions, and more, with a nostalgic look back to 1930 from his “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” short subject! 

I’m sure you’re familiar with Ripley’s books and television shows. But, did you know that Ripley (and the company bearing his name) produced his syndicated cartoon features in over 200 worldwide newspapers, broadcast several radio series to every world nation, created thirty-two “Odditorium” museums around the world, maintains an website and blog, and made an early talkie film series for Warner Brothers? Believe it or not!

Ripley was an avid artist, an explorer extraordinaire, a tireless traveler, and a generally busy guy, who, if had been a cat, would have surely died too soon from his insatiable curiosity.
