RipleyRobert Ripley scoured the world in search of the strange, the miraculous and the unbelievable -but all were documented fact. He didn't have to scam the public by making the stuff up like today's ridiculous Tabloidshe was lucky enough to begin his search when the world still had distant corners with less-changed places. Truth is stranger than fiction - and Robert Ripley searched the world over for the oddest events, the strangest characters the most unbelievable oddities. But they are all true! Believe It Or Not!

Ripleys One Minute Mysteries AdFew kids growing up in the last half century did not fall under the spell of Ripley especially after the paperback book revolution put the many reprints of the original newspaper Believe it or Nots back in bookstores for well under a dollar!

Ripley began his careen as a sports cartoonist on the New York Globe, and drew the panels that are so distinctively a part of the Believe It or Not phenomena. During his career searching out this stuff, he visited 198 countries, traveling a distance equal to 18 complete trips around the world! Talk about sore feet!

The show sounds like Bill Stern delivering these radio Ripley's One Minute Shorts, with two stories per short show. They are without commercials, allowing the local station to sell the spots.

Collected for the amazement of succeeding generations, these flashes of the world's wonder are still amazing. Ripley's One Minute Shorts are actually 50 seconds. Believe It Or Not!

For other seemingly unbelievable facts, see also: Ripley's Believe It Or Not (15-minute format show), Can You Imagine That, Passing Parade and Strange As It Seems. For other short stories, see also Strange Adventure, Incredible But True, Five Minute Mysteries, Word Detective with Basil Rathbone, and Ellery Queen Minute Mysteries.
