Ripley’s Believe it or Not!

Ever wonder who the Ripley in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” is? Okay, maybe you didn’t, but we’re about to fill you in.

Robert Ripley was born in 1890, in the brand new town of Santa Rosa, California. He grew up to be a talented cartoonist, and eventually created a newspaper panel series featuring oddly quirky facts and details. The series spawned a popular radio show, which eventually evolved into a television series (once sound entered the film world).

He stood firmly behind every outlandish claim and provided proof for each¬†fact he presented. As we all know, his legacy continues to live on, and each Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum provides a uniquely bizarre perspective of all the weirdness in the world.

On that note, if you’re headed to London anytime soon, we’ve got a special treat for you!
