Weekly Photo and more Challenge – Purple

Photos- well some and much more.     Purple may be my favorite color. In thinking about purple,  this silly, novelty song came to mind.
Flying Purple People Eater It was first written in 1958 by Sheb Wooley. This is the link to his YouTube recording which is in black & white.

Purple People Eater (film)

The song inspired this  movie  in 1988 – it might still be seen on Disney. Check out this cast. The film stars Neil Patrick HarrisNed BeattyShelley Winters, and Thora Birch . Guest appearances by Chubby Checker and Little Richard. And the Sheb Wooley who wrote the song 30 yrs before.

Other things you may not know- or at least I just learned, there is a store that everything they sell is purple. Can you guess the name?    http://www.thepurplestore.com/

  1. I love love love the color purple!!!!! It is awesome! Another purple thing I can think of is the one Disney Witch Mountain movie where they get told by the guy to “Follow the purple light”. It’s a bit newer than the 2 original ones, but not as recent as the one with Dwayne Johnson.

  2. I’m sure there was a game for the Commodore Amiga that was called Purple People Eater, could have been based on the film.

    • My daughter was born the year before- my years of watching childrens’ programing. Before disney went to more adult / violent themes. The song keeps running in my head now.

    • We heard that song on the radio for years. My daughter was born in 87 so I watched children’s shows at the right time perhaps. Unfortunately now that I have remembered it, it keeps running through my head. Yikes.
