If you grew up in Arizona between 1954 and 1989, you know Wallace and Ladmo. If you've only heard about the hilarious kid's show (which included adult humor), now is your chance to learn more. Uber fan, Steve Hoza, is exhibiting his personal collection of memorabilia now through August of 2008 at the Mesa Historical Museum.
Saturday, September 15th, Hoza will join a host of well-wishers as Bill Thompson (aka Wallace, Wallboy, Mr. Grudgemeyer)and Pat McMahon (Gerald, Marshall Good, Captain Super, etc.)as they examine the 2,000-some collection of items ranging from props, costumes, buttons, t-shirts, Ladmo ties, and more. Opening day hours will be 10a.m.-4p.m. with Thompson and McMahon signing autographs. Ladimir Kwiatkowski(Ladmo) died in 1994.Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for children.
On October 18, Hoza will talk about curating the exhibit, with Bill Thompson in attendance. Admission is free.
