Meet legendary Detroit horror host Count Scary at Windsor’s RetroRama: 1st EVER CON!

FIRST-EVER CONVENTION APPEARANCE! Windsor Comic Cons and GlassMonkey Studios proudly welcome the multi-talented Mr. Tom Ryan to RetroRama Classic Collectibles Con, Sunday Oct. 30th at Windsor’s Caboto Club! No stranger to Detroit/Windsor radio/TV, the Emmy and Clio award-winning, Motown-born Ryan has worn many hats in his career - including that of wacky horror host, Count Scary (not to mention his ultra-cool counterpart, Val Scary)! With the familiar catchphrase, "Ooh - that's scary!" Ryan's portrayal of The Count began in 1984 on Detroit's WDIV-TV (hosting 3D screenings of classic flicks like 'Gorilla At Large' and 'Revenge of the Creature') and continued to 'scare the pants off' viewers throughout the years as part of WKBD-TV's 'Shocktober' horror festival - and beyond. The character became an instant hit locally, and is still seen every Halloween around Detroit.

In addition, along with his legendary time as voice-man with Border Cities radio icon Dick Purtan (from 1964 to 1983, including five years at Windsor's CKLW from 1978-1983; and later, as lead host himself) Ryan then chalked-up more than 25-years as both a leading morning-man and drive-time-home host at Oldies 104.3 WOMC-FM.

Viewers may also remember Ryan for his role on a local children’s show on WKBD, Channel 50, called ‘The Captain Detroit Show’, where he played the part of Sgt. Sacto. The program aired from 1967 through 1970. 

Renown for his multi-faceted charity work and love of the area, Ryan still resides in Michigan and is eagerly looking forward to his FIRST-EVER CONVENTION APPEARANCE!

Don't miss this chance to meet this iconic Windsor/Detroit superstar! Appearing 12-4 p.m. ONLY AT RETRORAMA CLASSIC COLLECTIBLES CON, SUNDAY, OCT. 30TH AT WINDSOR’S CABOTO CLUB!

RetroRama Classic Collectibles Con to aid two local Windsor charities!

Retrorama Classic Collectibles Con  (Sunday, Oct. 30th; Caboto Club; Windsor, Ontario) will be an event (as were all of the original Windsor Christmas Comic Cons and Super Summer Comic Cons) unlike any other staged here before! 
RetroRama is a chance for us to bring together artists, vendors of vintage memorabilia, live performances, current celebrities & also deeply rooted celebrities from our youth in one AFFORDABLE show. It's a show for Windsor - put on by a couple of LOCAL Windsor guys who were born here and continue to be a part of the community year round!
As with all the original Windsor Comic Con events dating back to 2012, RetroRama will be donating a percentage of EVERY admission purchased for our event to LOCAL charities.
RetroRama is about memories: remembering the comics, television shows, movies, toys, the people --- especially the people--- that made growing up so much fun! RetroRama is also about creating new memories for young and old alike.
With these thoughts in mind, we have decided to choose not just one, but two, outstanding Windsor based charitable organizations to join forces with. A full 20% ($2.00) of your $10 admission fee will go directly to these very worthy LOCAL groups!
Our first recipient organization this year is the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County. What could be more fitting for an event that bases itself on our sense of nostalgia than for us to contribute to an amazing organization that assists those who suffer the loss of such cherished memories. Through their many programs and educational services the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County offers information, practical advice and support for people and their families living with dementia.
As we mentioned earlier, creating memories is as important to us at RetroRama and remembering the 'good old days'! It's our hope that all the kids who enjoy our show will have new memories that will stay with them throughout their lives. Unfortunately, there are kids who just aren't well enough to come out and enjoy the things that many of us take for granted. We're blessed in our community to have a fantastic organization that remembers those kids--- our other featured recipient, the Ronald McDonald House!
Recently, on May 6th, 2016 Canada's first Ronald McDonald House-within-a-Hospital ®, Ronald McDonald House Windsor opened inside the Met Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital. This home-away-from-home will continue their mission to keep families close to their seriously ill or injured child receiving care in WRH.
RetroRama, with your help, couldn't be more honoured to be able to help in a small way by donating to these amazing Windsor organizations!
We ask that beyond your generous contributions to these organizations through your admission purchase, that you take the time to visit their areas at the event and learn about what makes them so special to our community!
As you watch the list of guests and vendors grow each week keep in mind that by attending RetroRama you'll be putting back into the community. We bet it will be among the most fun times you'll ever have doing something good!
(For more information on these two organizations check out their web pages at -  and )

What could be more fitting than for RetroRama Classic Collectibles Con (Sunday, Oct. 30th at Windsor, Ontario's Caboto Club from 10-7) than present a guest from the show that started our current fascination with nostalgia, 'Happy Days'! ERIN MORAN began her career as 'Jenny Jones' on the series, Daktari (1966).

Moran continued the role in 1982 in the spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi, alongside Scott Baio. After Joanie Loves Chachi’s second season in 1983, she returned to Happy Days for its final season.
