And later in the thread we go a reference to Sky King (and his niece Penny). You can here about all of that here:

Yes...I remember Kukla, Fran and Ollie.

I remember most of these except for the OPs neat frog. Everytime someone mentions "tin foil hat" I think that it must look like Tom Terrific's Thinking Cap.


Drawn in a simple style, it featured a gee-whiz boy hero, Tom Terrific, who lived in a treehouse and could transform himself into anything he wanted thanks to his magic, funnel-shaped "thinking cap," which also enhanced his intelligence.

Fun thread--I forgot all about Tom Terrific! And that made me think of Gerald McBoing Boing....

The first TV show I saw was Beanie and Cecil. A family about a block away had a TV and they invited me and 2 brothers over every Friday evening to join their son in watching the weekly 15 minute puppet show. It was a special treat back then.

...and before there was Pee Wee Herman there was Pinky Lee! I suspect PWH stole his character from Pinky Lee.

Cheers!

I loved "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "George of the Jungle". We didn't get a TV until 1959 and then only had one channel so I never saw a lot of the 50s stuff.

I have been love with "Lost in Space" since I first saw it in September 1965. The "Jupiter 2" was launched on the far-future date of October 16, 1997.

Super Chicken's sidekick, Fred the Lion was a fave of mine. Many days still, the words echo...

By the same people who did Crusader Rabbit. I bought a set of video tapes of R&B from Disney after they acquired the rights so my kids could enjoy them with me. The episodes with Clyde and Dibney and the scrootch gun were missing. The Sleeping Beauty one that lampooned Walt Disney was still there, though. That surprised me. Remember that Disney's lawyers sued Winnipeg for having a statue of Winnie the Pooh in their city. They gave it up when the public outcry became bad publicity. Duh.

I'm familiar with the Winnie the Pooh statue. I live about 80 miles from Winnipeg.
