Greetings, greetings, fellow tropers! Let me show you this trope description!

''Jack Horkheimer: Star Gazer'' is a five-minute ChromaKey program produced for Creator/{{PBS}} by Miami's WPBT. From the show's humble beginning in 1976 until his untimely death in October 2010, the eccentric Jack Horkheimer taught and entertained even casual astronomy enthusiasts about where and when to find specific constellations, planets, and eclipses, along with scientific & historical information about these events. It would usually air five minutes before midnight on most PBS stations, when they would sign off, which is just perfect for those who wish to see the stars for themselves.

Up until 1997, the show was known as ''Jack Horkheimer: Star Hustler'', which was even reflected in the opening (Some people hustle pool/Some people hustle cars/But have you ever heard about/The man who hustles stars?). With the rise of the Internet and search engines, people -- particularly children -- were frequently getting pornographic results with the name, often from Hustler Magazine. This forced a name change.

Following Horkheimer's death, the program's name was changed to simply ''Star Gazer'', with the host being Chris Trigg of the Miami Space Museum, who occasionally guest hosted during the end of Jack's tenure. Not long afterwards, the program became ''Star Gazers'', with a group of three hosts: Dean Regas, James Albury and Marlene Hidalgo.

!!This show contains examples of:
* CatchPhrase: Jack has spawned many of these, the most recognizable being his opening ("Greetings, greetings, fellow star gazers!") and closing lines ("Keep looking up!").
* ChromaKey: The entire show is done like this, adding to its NarmCharm.
* {{Dualvertisement}}: Horkheimer once did a Creator/CartoonNetwork spot promoting their ''Fridays'' block in his signature style, chroma key and all.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness / GrowingTheBeard: From 1976-84, Jack's hosting style was more serious, like a documentary. When the show went national in '85, the executive producer told him to appeal to a general audience, not just astronomers, hence the wildly enthusiastic style most viewers know him for today.
* HaveAGayOldTime: The reason for the name change, since "hustler" wasn't just sexual in nature.
* LongRunner: Airing since 1976.
* RealSongThemeTune: Isao Tomita's electronic rendition of ClaudeDebussy's "Arabesque No. 1" was the theme song, up until the program's becoming ''Star Gazers'' in October 2011. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmSH7BsNSrM]]
