Yes, we had Romper Room, Miss Diane was the teacher/host

But don't ask me where it came from, I watched it when I wasn't in school yet! But I did have an official Romper Room Bronc - mine was red. I used to gallop around with the kids on TV - and when my Nana (grandmother) was with me, she'd join me with the dustmop!

And we also had a local kids' show which my brother and I attended when we were slightly older. It was sponsored by Freihofer's, a local (Albany, N.Y.) baking company. It featured Uncle Jim Fisk who told the story of Freddie Freihofer who was a cartoon bunny - and his friends. Uncle Jim illustrated the story with drawings in front of the kids in the audience and on TV. They also had "birthday-cakers" who were kids celebrating their birthdays on the show - with a Freihofer's cake, of course. My cousin did it every year, when I went it was my brother's birthday and I got a "squiggle," one of Uncle Jim's drawings made for me, and Freihofer's cupcakes to bring home!
