Sad to report:
INDIANAPOLIS - Thousands of Hoosiers are just learning of the passing of an Indianapolis television icon.
Bob Carter, also known as Sammy Terry, has died at the age of 83.
Carter created the character of "Sammy Terry" in the 1960s for a late-night horror movie show on channel 4.
For 37 years, Sammy Terry climbed out of a coffin on Nightmare Theater wearing a cape and skull cap. His evil chuckle earned the adoration of fans.
Carter's props included a spider named George. His son Mark, dubbed "Ghoulsby," was also on the show, which aired horror films from the 1930s and 40s.
Carter also owned a music store on Shadeland Ave. for 35 years, where he offered piano lessons, repaired band instruments and sold sheet music. He was an active supporter of the Special Olympics.
Funeral arrangements are still being made, but are not expected to include a public viewing.

How many people remember Sammy Terry?
Honestly, I had know idea that it was just an Indiana thing. To funny huh...for years I would talk about Sammy Terry to people, thinking they knew who the hek I was talking about....Well unless your from Indiana, you'll have no clue who he is. I would even try to imitate his voice when he's talking to his pet spider GEORGE and when he would say GOOD EVENING. I know everyone is probably thinking I'm such a dork, but I don't care. I Just wanted something happy on this forum for once.
No he is dead.
