Hey Kids what time is it?? It's Howdy Doody time of course! I ran across this coloring book one day and it got me thinking about one of the first t.v. shows I can remember watching. I would run home to see what Buffalo Bob had in mind, see the kids screaming in the peanut gallery, and howl at flub a dub, he was so strange, surreal. Actually the whole show seemed unreal in a way, I guess that was the best part, the fantasy. I was hot for Princess Summer Fall Winter Spring. And Clarabell the clown, he seemed like a nice guy with issues. Howdy was the upbeat little guy that always seemed to take life in stride. Most days I wish I was more like Howdy and less like the hapless Dilly Dally. I guess the Howdy Doody show was a lesson in life. It's important for a kid to have role models, mine was an afterschool t.v. show.
