Re: Really, REALLY OLD Children's TV

I remember Romper Room with the magic mirror to "see" all us kids.  The Merry Mailman,. Howdy Doody, Paul Winchell and Jerry Mahoney, Wonderama on Sunday morning after Church.   The begining of The Wonderful World of Disney and of course, the Mickey Mouse Club With Jimmy and Roy and Annette.  It is fun revisiting a peaceful time in my life.

Bozo, Romper Room, Captain Kangaroo and I remember watching Sky King. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Anyone who is a long time resident of Arizona will remember Wallace and Ladmo. Gerald was the privileged "brat" whom everyone loved to hate.  Ran over 40 years.

Re: Really, REALLY OLD Children's TV

When my children were little it was Gumby and the usual cartoons. My older grandchildren was Teletubbies and Sponge bob. My young ones today it is Daniel Tiger. 

Of course, Sesame Street has spanned the years over all of them.

Anyone who grew up in Chicago in the late 50's will remember Ding Dong School with Miss Frances.  She would ring a big bell.
