Although the years have turned me gray,
I remember shows of yesterday.
On ten inch screens of snow and sway
When rabbit ears just wouldn’t stay.
There were Howdy Doody and Clara Bell.
And live commercials in which to sell
From pills to help when legs would swell
To fruit desserts that would always jell.
There were Popeye and Brutus and Olive too,
Clutch Cargo and Donald to name a few;
All this when Sally Starr was new,
And then came Captain Kangaroo.
These are the shows I remember most;
The great cartoons and the greater hosts.
