Saturday in the 60s

The first post-TV generation grew up in the golden glow of animated splendor as the Jetsons, The Flintstones, and a vast array of superheroes invaded the living room, culminating with the herald of things to come; a great dane who reluctantly solved mysteries with his groovy friends.

  1. 50 years ago..this month on WNEW TV(formerly WABD TV Ch.5 and many years later:WNYW TV)Ch.5 in NYC..Radio/tv broadcaster,artist,scriptwriter,cartoon vo performer and children’s tv wraparound host/performer:Sandy Becker,created,produced and presented his own tv puppet version of Sir Charles Dickens classic Yultide tale:”A Christmas Carol!”.

    The show was first seen on Becker’s weekday evening kids tv series(the puppet version of the story was wrapped around the reruns of old movie cartoons and commercials)..on saturday night December 23,1961..a special hour long edition of this show was broadcast..without the cartoon reruns.

    It was and still is the most unique interpretation of Dickens’ morality play ever seen on tv.

  2. I have another kids tv show from the 1960’s that I would like to add to your”Skooldays”website.
    “1 2 3 Go!”
    Children’s tv travelogue
    NBC TV Network
    Sunday evenings:Sunday 10/8/1961-
    Sunday 5/27/1962

    Hosts/Narrators/Interviewers:Jack Lescoulie and
    Richard Thomas.

    On sunday evening October 8,1961..NBC TV aired the children’s travelogue:”1 2 3 Go!”..the series had two people:”The Today Show’s”resident sportscaster:Jack Lescoulie and kid actor and dancer:Richard Thomas(Who would later go onto greater tv fame as”John Boy Walton”on “The Waltons”on CBS TV a decade later)go on trips to many interesting and exciting locales.

    On one show..the pair visited NYC’s fireboats division..on another program..they went to England and took part in a recreation of a joust and the pair went to see a haunted house in Long Island,New York with NYC TV’s resident horror movie host/performer:John Zacherle(y)serving as tour guide.

    The pair even visited US Attorney Gen.Robert F.Kennedy and Supreme Court Justice:William O.Douglas.

    Unfortunatley..the series aired Sunday evenings from
    6:30 to 7:00 P.M…hence it was unable to gain an audience.

    NBC TV ended Lescoulie’s and Thomas’s treks following the Sunday May 27,1962 broadcast.

    The concept was revived years later as”Go!”on NBC TV’s Saturday mornings schedule..with different hosts serving as the program’s tour guide.

    I hope that you might add “1 2 3 Go!”to the Saturday 1960’s kids tv section of your”Skooldays”website?
