Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Wesley Eure


In 1974, Wesley Eure tried out for and won a role on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Eure had previously met producer Sid Krofft and was committed to do an audition for a new children's show he was working on. Eure auditioned and won the role of Will Marshall on Land of the Lost. He kept his commitment to both shows.

From 1974 to 1981, Eure starred on NBC's Days of Our Lives, playing the role of Mike Horton. He also starred as Will Marshall in Sid and Marty Krofft's children's adventure series, Land of the Lost from 1974 to 1976, filming this show and Days of Our Lives simultaneously. Eure agreed to be billed simply as ''Wesley'' on Land of the Lost.

Eure's stardom in the 1970s led to a number of appearances on game shows. He was repeatedly asked to appear on both Password and Match Game. He appeared on Password so often that he became a semi-regular on the show.

He later appeared in Hanna-Barbera's 1979 comedy C.H.O.M.P.S, which also starred Valerie Bertinelli, Red Buttons, Jim Backus, Hermione Baddeley, and Conrad Bain.

In 1987, Eure became host of the Nickelodeon children's game show Finders Keepers, and continued in this role through 1988.

Eure co-produced, wrote and acted in Fox Television's hidden-camera shows Totally Hidden Video (which aired from 1989 to 1992). He also co-created Dragon Tales, PBS Kids's Emmy-nominated animated series for preschoolers which began airing in 1999, and directed Spy TV for NBC in 2001.

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Kathy Coleman


Kathy Coleman starred in the hit 1970s show ''Land of the Lost.'' Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of ten children. Her bright smile and blonde curls got her into television commercials at a very young age, and by the time she was 10 she was touring the country and recording as the youngest member of a popular musical group.

Kathy played the role of ''Holly'' on the 1974-1977 NBC Saturday morning series produced by H.R. Pufnstuf creators Sid and Marty Krofft, featuring state-of-the-art special effects and written by some of the biggest names in literary science fiction.

''Land of the Lost'' was known for its intelligent scripts and original concepts - from an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, to primate-like Pakuni and lizard creature Sleestaks to dimension-hopping Pylons. It became the most successful Saturday morning program of the decade. When it finished its network run, the show went directly into syndicated reruns that continue to this day. It is this show for which Kathy is most remembered.

The title of Kathy's new book - ''Run, Holly, Run!''- is taken from the oft-repeated instructions of her TV brother, Will, played by Wesley Eure.

''Run, Holly, Run!'' details the making of ''Land of the Lost'' and how the series gave Kathy fame, fun, lifelong friendships, and a positive father figure. Learn what happened with Kathy after the series ended!

1:00p.m.: Meet Wesley Eure (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Wesley Eure


In 1974, Wesley Eure tried out for and won a role on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Eure had previously met producer Sid Krofft and was committed to do an audition for a new children's show he was working on. Eure auditioned and won the role of Will Marshall on Land of the Lost. He kept his commitment to both shows.

From 1974 to 1981, Eure starred on NBC's Days of Our Lives, playing the role of Mike Horton. He also starred as Will Marshall in Sid and Marty Krofft's children's adventure series, Land of the Lost from 1974 to 1976, filming this show and Days of Our Lives simultaneously. Eure agreed to be billed simply as ''Wesley'' on Land of the Lost.

Eure's stardom in the 1970s led to a number of appearances on game shows. He was repeatedly asked to appear on both Password and Match Game. He appeared on Password so often that he became a semi-regular on the show.

He later appeared in Hanna-Barbera's 1979 comedy C.H.O.M.P.S, which also starred Valerie Bertinelli, Red Buttons, Jim Backus, Hermione Baddeley, and Conrad Bain.

In 1987, Eure became host of the Nickelodeon children's game show Finders Keepers, and continued in this role through 1988.

Eure co-produced, wrote and acted in Fox Television's hidden-camera shows Totally Hidden Video (which aired from 1989 to 1992). He also co-created Dragon Tales, PBS Kids's Emmy-nominated animated series for preschoolers which began airing in 1999, and directed Spy TV for NBC in 2001.

1:00p.m.: Meet Kathy Coleman (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Kathy Coleman


Kathy Coleman starred in the hit 1970s show ''Land of the Lost.'' Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of ten children. Her bright smile and blonde curls got her into television commercials at a very young age, and by the time she was 10 she was touring the country and recording as the youngest member of a popular musical group.

Kathy played the role of ''Holly'' on the 1974-1977 NBC Saturday morning series produced by H.R. Pufnstuf creators Sid and Marty Krofft, featuring state-of-the-art special effects and written by some of the biggest names in literary science fiction.

''Land of the Lost'' was known for its intelligent scripts and original concepts - from an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, to primate-like Pakuni and lizard creature Sleestaks to dimension-hopping Pylons. It became the most successful Saturday morning program of the decade. When it finished its network run, the show went directly into syndicated reruns that continue to this day. It is this show for which Kathy is most remembered.

The title of Kathy's new book - ''Run, Holly, Run!''- is taken from the oft-repeated instructions of her TV brother, Will, played by Wesley Eure.

''Run, Holly, Run!'' details the making of ''Land of the Lost'' and how the series gave Kathy fame, fun, lifelong friendships, and a positive father figure. Learn what happened with Kathy after the series ended!

3:00p.m.: Meet Wesley Eure (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Wesley Eure


In 1974, Wesley Eure tried out for and won a role on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Eure had previously met producer Sid Krofft and was committed to do an audition for a new children's show he was working on. Eure auditioned and won the role of Will Marshall on Land of the Lost. He kept his commitment to both shows.

From 1974 to 1981, Eure starred on NBC's Days of Our Lives, playing the role of Mike Horton. He also starred as Will Marshall in Sid and Marty Krofft's children's adventure series, Land of the Lost from 1974 to 1976, filming this show and Days of Our Lives simultaneously. Eure agreed to be billed simply as ''Wesley'' on Land of the Lost.

Eure's stardom in the 1970s led to a number of appearances on game shows. He was repeatedly asked to appear on both Password and Match Game. He appeared on Password so often that he became a semi-regular on the show.

He later appeared in Hanna-Barbera's 1979 comedy C.H.O.M.P.S, which also starred Valerie Bertinelli, Red Buttons, Jim Backus, Hermione Baddeley, and Conrad Bain.

In 1987, Eure became host of the Nickelodeon children's game show Finders Keepers, and continued in this role through 1988.

Eure co-produced, wrote and acted in Fox Television's hidden-camera shows Totally Hidden Video (which aired from 1989 to 1992). He also co-created Dragon Tales, PBS Kids's Emmy-nominated animated series for preschoolers which began airing in 1999, and directed Spy TV for NBC in 2001.

3:00p.m.: Meet Kathy Coleman (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Kathy Coleman


Kathy Coleman starred in the hit 1970s show ''Land of the Lost.'' Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of ten children. Her bright smile and blonde curls got her into television commercials at a very young age, and by the time she was 10 she was touring the country and recording as the youngest member of a popular musical group.

Kathy played the role of ''Holly'' on the 1974-1977 NBC Saturday morning series produced by H.R. Pufnstuf creators Sid and Marty Krofft, featuring state-of-the-art special effects and written by some of the biggest names in literary science fiction.

''Land of the Lost'' was known for its intelligent scripts and original concepts - from an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, to primate-like Pakuni and lizard creature Sleestaks to dimension-hopping Pylons. It became the most successful Saturday morning program of the decade. When it finished its network run, the show went directly into syndicated reruns that continue to this day. It is this show for which Kathy is most remembered.

The title of Kathy's new book - ''Run, Holly, Run!''- is taken from the oft-repeated instructions of her TV brother, Will, played by Wesley Eure.

''Run, Holly, Run!'' details the making of ''Land of the Lost'' and how the series gave Kathy fame, fun, lifelong friendships, and a positive father figure. Learn what happened with Kathy after the series ended!

5:00p.m.: Meet Wesley Eure (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Wesley Eure


In 1974, Wesley Eure tried out for and won a role on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Eure had previously met producer Sid Krofft and was committed to do an audition for a new children's show he was working on. Eure auditioned and won the role of Will Marshall on Land of the Lost. He kept his commitment to both shows.

From 1974 to 1981, Eure starred on NBC's Days of Our Lives, playing the role of Mike Horton. He also starred as Will Marshall in Sid and Marty Krofft's children's adventure series, Land of the Lost from 1974 to 1976, filming this show and Days of Our Lives simultaneously. Eure agreed to be billed simply as ''Wesley'' on Land of the Lost.

Eure's stardom in the 1970s led to a number of appearances on game shows. He was repeatedly asked to appear on both Password and Match Game. He appeared on Password so often that he became a semi-regular on the show.

He later appeared in Hanna-Barbera's 1979 comedy C.H.O.M.P.S, which also starred Valerie Bertinelli, Red Buttons, Jim Backus, Hermione Baddeley, and Conrad Bain.

In 1987, Eure became host of the Nickelodeon children's game show Finders Keepers, and continued in this role through 1988.

Eure co-produced, wrote and acted in Fox Television's hidden-camera shows Totally Hidden Video (which aired from 1989 to 1992). He also co-created Dragon Tales, PBS Kids's Emmy-nominated animated series for preschoolers which began airing in 1999, and directed Spy TV for NBC in 2001.

5:00p.m.: Meet Kathy Coleman (45 mins.)

Room: Vendor Room Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Kathy Coleman


Kathy Coleman starred in the hit 1970s show ''Land of the Lost.'' Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of ten children. Her bright smile and blonde curls got her into television commercials at a very young age, and by the time she was 10 she was touring the country and recording as the youngest member of a popular musical group.

Kathy played the role of ''Holly'' on the 1974-1977 NBC Saturday morning series produced by H.R. Pufnstuf creators Sid and Marty Krofft, featuring state-of-the-art special effects and written by some of the biggest names in literary science fiction.

''Land of the Lost'' was known for its intelligent scripts and original concepts - from an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, to primate-like Pakuni and lizard creature Sleestaks to dimension-hopping Pylons. It became the most successful Saturday morning program of the decade. When it finished its network run, the show went directly into syndicated reruns that continue to this day. It is this show for which Kathy is most remembered.

The title of Kathy's new book - ''Run, Holly, Run!''- is taken from the oft-repeated instructions of her TV brother, Will, played by Wesley Eure.

''Run, Holly, Run!'' details the making of ''Land of the Lost'' and how the series gave Kathy fame, fun, lifelong friendships, and a positive father figure. Learn what happened with Kathy after the series ended!

Produced By: JediCole Universe


Part trivia, part unique movie quote knowledge spectacular, this popular game show is coming to Infinicon! So you like spouting off movie quotes by the hundreds with family and friends, do you? Do you really know your quotes when you hear them? How about when they are read aloud as if you wrote out your favorites and gave them to your grandma to read? That is the challenge with Screen Time, where hosts read well known quotes without any inflection, emotion, or attempt to mimic the voices or performance of the original actors.

Cole ''JediCole'' Houston brings this often hilarious game show, which challenges with trivia then hits hard with movie quotes and engaging games, as it tests just how well contestants know the most memorable lines in cinema history. A surprise co-host will join the fun for each incarnation of this favorite game show, so be sure to get into the contestant pool and show your stuff when it comes to speaking in movies!
