ranitidine Posted February 4, 2007 Share Posted February 4, 2007 I remember being in the Peanut Gallery of the Howdy Doody Show when I was about 5 years old....it was the first moment of disillusionment with the world that I can recall.I thought that we could jump up and down and have unlimited Fun,but there were grown-ups on the sidelines telling us to shush or get happy at assigned moments.This wasn't what I'd bargained for..... Yes. Also, Uncle Fred Sayles and his Junior Frolics show on channel 13, long before it was an uplifting, educational channel. He played a lot of Felix the Cat cartoons, and you would jump up and cheer when the light went on. You would sit and be absolutely quiet when the light went dark Somewhere, I'm sure my mother still has a picture of me and my cub scout pack clustered around Uncle Fred. Old NY TV Programs I Remember going to a taping of the Perry Como Show with my father when I was 7 years old....when I saw the APPLAUSE sign blink on,I was Shocked....they're Telling me when I'm supposed to like something,and signify?Yes,even at that early age,it was bah humbug! for me.... Taping? I believe those shows were broadcast live. I went to one in the mid-50s. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
