Back in 1981, Elvira (the alter-ego of actress and dancer Cassandra Peterson) became the first nationally syndicated HorrorHost, and emerged as one of the most original and outrageous characters in popular culture, with a large cult following. The movies featured on ''Elvira's Movie Macabre'', her first show, were always B grade (or lower) and Elvira often enjoyed interrupting the movie to lampoon the actors, the script, and the bad editing. In 1995, TNBC had her star in ''Attack of the Killer B Movies'', which followed suit but also had co-stars such as [[Series/SavedByTheBell Dustin Diamond]] joining her in the riffing in an attempt to attract younger viewers. The movies, themselves, were also greatly cut for time and colorized.

* BigBraToFill: Out of costume, Cassandra Peterson's chest is not at large as her Elvira costume makes it out to be, or as popular perception would lead you to believe.

Peterson herself has actually commented that it's easy for more...."endowed" women to look ridiculous in an Elvira costume because they're too busty for the illusion to work.
