Cleveland's middle child suburb.....during the 1960s and 1970s, Parma was the target of light-hearted jabs by local movie show hosts Ghoulardi
, Big Chuck & Little John
, and The Ghoul
, due to its central European and, most specifically, Polish
, make-up. Ghoulardi, the horror host of late night Shock Theater at WJW-TV, Channel 8, in Cleveland, Ohio from January 13, 1963 through December 16, 1966, made a series of shorts called "Parma Place" and focused on an alleged love of white socks, pink flamingos
, chrome balls
and the polka.
