Sir Graves Ghastly was a tongue-in-cheek vampire character created by Cleveland-born actor Lawson J. Deming (1913-2007). The character was the host of a popular Saturday afternoon horror film television show that ran from 1967 to 1982 in Detroit, Cleveland, Washington, D.C. and parts of Canada. The program was originally billed as Sir Graves' Big Show, but later became known simply by the character name, Sir Graves Ghastly.
