Howdy Doody Show

19 Jun

Howdy Doody was shown in the afternoon on KALB TV in Alexandria, Louisiana in the 50's.

Howdy Doody was one of the early shows seen on KALB TV in Alexandria, Louisiana in the 50’s and the show lives on in my memories of that time. I can remember Howdy and Buffalo Bob Smith, Clarabelle the Clown, Chief Thunderthud, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, Mayor Phineas T. Bluster and Dilly Dally and Flub A Dub the puppet which consisted of parts of eight animals.

I can recall Buffalo Bob asking the kids in the peanut gallery “What time is it” and they say “It’s Howdy Doody time”.

Clarabell the Clown was played by Bob Keeshan who later would become Captain Kangaroo on the CBS network.

The show was taken off the air in 1960 and this is the very end of the last show:
