Early TV Memories –
Howdy Doody

 

Issued: August 11, 2009

North Hollywood, CA

 

“When I was a little girl I waited eagerly every day for my mother to call me in from playing outside to watch ‘Howdy Doody.’  Howdy was my favorite character and such a good boy.  My second favorite was the beautiful Princess Summerfall Winterspring – what a name!  Because my last name was Smith back then, I guess I thought of Buffalo Bob Smith as my ‘Uncle Bob.’” – Linda S.

 

Forty-eight freckles peppered the face of the puppet – one for each U.S. state at the time.  Red-haired and plucky, he was the all-American boy with the ear-to-ear grin.  He and the other puppets were treated as if they were real people, and that helped the young audience look at them the same way.  Skits featured humans and puppets working together to solve problems.  The show ended on its most famous note, when the clown who never spoke whispered a tearful farewell to the children viewers.
