When Frank Paris (designer of the original 'Howdy Doody' puppet), walked off the phenomenally successful children's show hours before airtime in May 1948, he hoped to take the puppet and start his own show. But NBC sued and won an injunction against him ever using the puppet again, so he created a new character in 1948 and called him Peter W. Pixie. The Peter Pixie show was broadcast over WPIX in New York. It did not catch on. Viewer Ted Rosenberg sends us a copy of his Peter W. Pixie club passport. This character looks like the world's first rave kid - or perhaps a prototype of the Marilyn Manson look! What a great site! I have tears in my eyes as I see my dad's name mentioned here! (Claude Kirchner) Dad passed away in March of 1993 from lymphoma. A brief blurb in the TV section of the NY Post mentioned his illness just before he died. I saved every single letter (over 500) and have them in albums. I still can't get over the response and emotions shared concerning those who watched "Terrytoon Circus" every night. I guess it was a ritual, but some kids were watching to escape unbelievable abuses and found comfort from the show... If anyone reading this was one of the corespondents, thank you sooooo much! What memories we all have from those good old TV days! Here's another couple of shows dad had that some of you might recall: Marx Magic Midway (mid 60's on channel 4, I think) Did you know that he was the "voice-over" voice for all those Marx commercials for a long time? We had a closet full of Marx toys, but for some reason, my brother & I were not allowed to touch them! I guess they were to give away. My 5th grade class (public school in Conn) went on a field trip to this show - it was a great experience for all!) The other show was Super Adventure Theater I think it played old movies - science fiction, I believe. I have tons of stuff of dad's including his original boots & ringmaster costume. (He wore it late in life for a show called Remember When.... hosted by a reporter named John Johnson. (I videotaped it, but our son accidentally recorded over it!) Dad and Mary Hartline both still fit in their costumes from the 40's! I also have many of the Super Circus shows with all those live commercials. "Kellogg's" was their main sponsor. (By the way, Mike Wallace was the emcee on that show and it aired from 1947-55 live from some "hall" in Chicago). Oh yeah, I also have "Clownie"!!!! - Lynn
