I remember sitting on the floor watching Romper Room on a black and white TV with an enormous case and a tiny picture tube.

Thought I was the only one that ever watched that show...

Bet you watched Clutch Cargo, too.

I watched Clutch Cargo - but I always thought "Romper Room" was for babies.

I remember "Romper Room", but my show of choice was "New Zoo Review"...

With Doug and Emmy Jo...

Every day was a different show...


...and "Captain Kangaroo", of course.

Yeah, I watched "Clutch Cargo."

Captain Kangaroo was the greatest!

When the Captain hung up his hat and sent Rabbit and Mr. Kangaroo out to pasture Schwinn bikes went down fast. There simply wasn't any other reason to want one of those tanks.

Spider bikes and the Brady Bunch were waiting in the wings.

Last week, I did see someone with a bass made from a water jug - you know, from a water cooler. Sounded GREAT, and it was pretty small compared to most washtub - trashcan - etc. basses.
