Regis and Kelly Go 3-D!

Regis and Kelly Go 3-D!

If Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa aren't animated/scary enough for you already, just wait for Halloween. This year, the daytime duo is broadcasting the annual 'Regis and Kelly Halloween Spectacular' in three dimensions -- a nod to '50s horror flicks that used the gimmick to great affect.

Leading up to the 31st, five million pairs of those red and blue 3-D glasses are being given away at Walgreen's drug stores around the country. You can also acquire a set via mail (S.A.S.E. required, of course).

Wondering how all of this is going to work? When you're looking at a 3-D movie -- or, in this case, an early-morning banter-fest -- you're actually seeing the same scene shot from two slightly different angles projected on top of each other. This is to simulate the way you see things in three dimensions in real life. Your eyes, which are are two inches apart, take two pictures of everything you look at from two slightly different angles and put them together in the brain. For 3-D movies or TV shows, the glasses use the different colors on each eye to filter out a single angle of the double-projection you're looking at. One angle goes to one eye, the other goes to your other eye and they're translated into a single 3-D image by your brain.

There's no word yet on just what sort of stunts will be a part of the Halloween episode of 'Live,' but we expect a lot of zooming in and out and saying "Whoooaa!"
