If you remember this...
you will want to read on! I remember it, and find 50s and 60s TV inspired memorabilia impossible to pass by. For me, it's such a nostalgic trip, that it triggers important moments in my life. I remember well our first TV. How exciting that was! My dad brought it home, and we had a family gathering in which he and my mother laid down the television watching rules, and then it was time for the plugging in! Suddenly, there before our eyes were Howdy Doody and Princess Summerfall Winterspring! Our lives would never be the same.
Of course, close on the TV's heels was our first issue of
Advertising became the name of the game, so we soon found ourselves wanting all the marvelous gadgets we saw -- and we bought them.
We waited with great anticipation, the new episode of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans
and cooked our meals from new products,
ate from TV trays,
and saved the leftovers in a New and Improved way.
Those were the good ole' days...or, were they?
