    CHICAGO, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Game Show Network made a spectacle of

     The Woolery bobblehead will be transported in a customized "Chuckwagon"
 around the country to promote the GSN's first reality series CHUCK WOOLERY:
 NATURALLY STONED which debuts Sunday, June 15 at 9:30 PM ET/PT and 8:30 CT.
 The giant bobblehead and "Chuckwagon" are scheduled to cruise the streets of
 downtown Chicago during the NCTA's The National Show (June 8-11) and then will
 enjoy a weekend in the Hamptons before making a splash in New York City (week
 of June 16).  The bobblehead will then head west to visit Los Angeles and
 Seattle in July.  In all, it is expected to travel over 3,000 miles.
    "When I began my career in show business I never fathomed I'd have a
 bobblehead created in my likeness, let alone the world's largest," said
 Woolery.  "It is one of the most bizarre tributes I could ever imagine.  It's
 been a lot of fun working on NATURALLY STONED and well, this bobblehead is
 bigger than life for me."
     According to the builders Promotions Group West, the coil used for the
 Woolery bobblehead is from a Honda Civic and the head is estimated to bobble
 approximately 120 times a minute.  The head is sized 3 times larger than the
 body and will lay down at night when not in use.
     "America is smitten with bobblehead mania and now we are taking it to the
 next level of absurdity.  The giant bobblehead on the mobile 'Chuckwagon' is
 the perfect promotional stunt to complement our aggressive marketing campaign
 associated with our special summer programming on Sunday nights," reflected
 Dena Kaplan, Senior Vice President of Marketing, GSN.
     (*The network is currently registering the bobblehead with the Guinness
 Book of World Records.)  Digital photographs of the Woolery bobblehead are
 available upon request.
