Wizard World Madison 2018 starts next Thursday, November 30 and runs through Sunday, Sunday, December 2. With Wizard World fast approaching, I am featuring some of the many great moments I have had there.
Butch Patrick rose to fame as Eddie Munster on tv's The Munsters back in the 1960's. He appeared on a lot of other series as a youngster, but found little work as an adult actor. Thanks to the nostalgia craze and comic cons, Patrick became more active over the last 20 years or so. My interview with Patrick from a con can be found at On the Beat With Butch Patrick.
After years of bad times, Patrick started to be on the rebound, but prostate cancer knocked him back a bit. Fortunately, it seems the cancer was found early enough and Patrick was given a very good chance of full recovery.
Patrick is an excellent guest at cons. He embraces his role that made him famous and also his place in pop culture. He makes the most out of these cons and gives the fans a real feelgood from meeting him. I have met him several times and he has always been in a great mood. I hope to see him again this year.
