Yup, according to that website I posted, Srp purchased the land and bulldozed it to put up office buildings in 1983.

They say on that site that in 1965 it was the 5th largest Theme Park in the U.S.

Ahhh Legend City what memories!

I remember having so much fun there and was very sad when it was closed. It was and still is the last amusement park in AZ!

Well you are about to get your wish. During the Cards preseason game on KAZ (the station that shows the reruns of Wallace and Ladmo), there was a commercial for a 50th Anniversary DVD coming soon.

It will show highlights of the shows 35 years on the air (Longest running TV show ever) and will have the final episode/special in its entirety. They haven't announced a date for release yet. My guess as to that reasoning is that they are still probably adding things in as we speak (for example an interview with Pat McMahon).

Good luck trying to keep that on the shelves!

BTW: The auction ended for that book and it sold for $91.

I won a Ladmo bag but it was one of the "Mini" ones....I know Im now only 1/2 as cool as you "Full size" bag winners......

I bet you parents hated those bags....Just what a little kid needs 5 pounds of candy, cookies and chips. A temp tattoo if you were lucky.

BUMP

In case you or anybody else haven't found it yet

http://www.wallaceandladmostore.com/

I almost completely forgot about getting the DVD since I hadn't heard about it in a while. Thankfully something jogged my memory to look this up and wanted to share with everyone else

Haven't ordered mine yet but I soon will

BTW It may be a good idea to move this to the Movie and TV Forum

Wallace and Ladmo Show


Do you remember the Wallace and Ladmo Show?
WallaceWatchers.com
LOCALS KEEP WALLACE AND LADMO HISTORY ALIVE

TEMPE, AZ – In 1954 It’s Wallace, a show that would later be renamed The
Wallace and Ladmo Show, got its start in Arizona. After 35 years the final
episode aired and the show has been gone ever since. Steve Hoza, a local
historian and fan met with Bill “Wallace” Thompson and the two created a
plan to bring the show back to life. The plan was for Hoza to write a book
on the history of the show from a fan perspective. Hundreds of interviews
were conducted with friends, family, cast, crew, and the general public
about the show and the experiences people had with the show. After years of
work the book was eventually dropped by the publisher. Hoza, not wanting the
project to die, sought out the assistance of his nephew to help him take the
show to a new medium, the internet. Tom Dickson, a part-time web designer
and fan of the show, was eager to assist with the project.

WallaceWatchers.com now features an extensive collection of historical items
on the show. The site features the public history of the show, untold
history and interviews from the cast, fan interviews, photographs of
memorabilia, fan photos, a guestbook and detailed information on each
character from the show. Fans can also download desktop wallpapers for their
computers and listen to audio clips from the show.

In addition to providing fans with a source for information, the site now
features a store where fans can purchase Ladmo Tie T-Shirts and DVD’s of the
Old Time Movies shown on the show. As a lover of animals, Bill “Wallace”
Thompson asked that the two creators of the site donate all profits from the
sales to go to the Arizona Humane Society.

I grew up in Scottsdale and went to elementary school with one of Wallace's daughters. One summer night we we were at a birthday party for one of the neighborhood kids, that lasted until well into the evening. At about nine o'clock, his daughter asked me if I wanted to meet her Dad. We were both in the 4th grade at the time, and the thought of meeting Wallace was somewhat akin to meeting the Pope, so of course I said yes.

So we snuck out of the party and walked down the street to her house. As we approached her home, all the lights we out, with the only thing illuminating the entrance to the house being the glow from the TV. Looking through the screen door I could see the outline of someone laying on the couch. We opened the door slowly, and there was Wallace, sound asleep with a can of beer perched precariously upon his very large stomach.

I stood there, transfixed, listening to him snore for several minutes. Just to prove that this wasn't an illusion, I reached out and kind of poked him in the arm. He let out a snort and his daughter, afraid that I would wake him, said it was time to go - and so we left.

For those of you who didn't grow up in Phoenix, this probably doesn't mean much. But to those of us that did, Wallace and Ladmo were god-like characters. It is impossible to not look back at this show and smile.
