  • The 'bone organ' from The Goonies. Looking this one up I see a lot of people were freaked out by it, while I thought it was cool.

    Scooby Doo also plays one in episode 16 to open a secret trap door in the floor.

    There was an episode of The Andy Griffith Show (Season 6, episode 14 according to imdb.com) entitled "The Church Organ" about the church replacing the ailing pump organ with a used electric organ.

    Later,

      How odd! The keyboards on that organ are from F>F rather than C>C. I wonder what brand it was–Baldwin?

      Picture is not very clear but I would have said E>E, for all the difference it makes.

      I think you're right Roger. The organ is definitely defective with a range like that!

      The first Baldwin tube organ I ever saw was being sold for $200 in town, and I just had to have it! It had pots controlled by Art Deco knobs in the shape of an arrow, and every stop sounded the same (except for pitch). A church bought it, and I'm not sure what's happened to it by now.

      It was a full-sized organ with two 61-note keyboards and at least 30 pedals meeting AGO specifications, so I'm not sure of the model.
