The House of Mystery started out as a 15 minute serial with a version of Rip Van Winkle, then evolved into single 30 minute episodes. It was not uncommon for Roger to take more famous ghost type stories and place himself right in the middle of them, almost like Baron Munchausen. That begs the question: given that Elliott was always the hero who figured out the mystery at the end, and his studio audience were all gullible youngsters, could Elliott's character have been making up all the stories to impress the kids? After all, what are the odds that one guy would stumble into so many mysteries and solve them all so easily on such a regular basis? Then again, that same question would apply to many crime/ mystery/ and super hero shows on radio. It certainly seemed more obvious with those kids oohhhing and ahhhing over Elliott's exploits, almost as if to encourage him to exaggerate his accomplishments even further. If ever there were an audience easy to convince, it was this group of wide eyed children.
