I remember sneaking up late at night to peek at my dad watching Playboy After Dark. From my bedroom, I could also hear Doris Day singing Que Sera Sera every week.

My Little Margie. Gale Storm was pretty sexy. I never watched the kiddie shows because they were so slupid and plodding.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

My brother and could see a perfect reflection what was on in the window of our room . Also watched reruns of superman on Saturday mornings .

I remember another show for little kids called Romper Room that I enjoyed, and recall being fascinated that the teacher would draw on a large easel tablet and could make pictures out of kids' initial letters. I was desperate to own the big crayon or marker she used, that made such bold, black lines!

They were all based on the same show. Romper Room is one of my early shows, and I knew it was earlier than that 1966 picture in the other post. So looking it up, the show was both syndicated nationwide and franchised. So some localities used the national feed, others used the scripts and hired local talent. They would also use local children. The show started in 1953, before I was born.

Other early shows include Captain Kangaroo, Mr Ed, and a few others mentioned by others. Can't remember which was "first".
