Wonderful old shows. Love Amos and Andy. Always wanted to be a member of

the Peanut Gallery on the Doody show. They would give away a huge Toosie Roll filled with their candy.  I Love Lucy was a great favorite as was the Lone Ranger. Many of the shows can be seen on streaming video over the internet.

Oh, Lordy, Queen for a Day. We watched it on TV. As kids we thought it was wonderful and how lucky these ladies were to get all thes prizes, but our mothers just shook their heads at how these womens' "poor me" stories were being aired all over the country...so embarrassing! Compare that now to all the reality shows that bare everything and social media that is just so intrusive, and Queen for a Day seems like nothing. Cat LOL

Ah the duck! that was the 'Best of Groucho' with Groucho Marx and his sidekick/announcer George Fenneman. Fenneman would announce the contestants and say 'come on out and meet Groucho Marx. The contestants came out and Groucho wotld say 'say the secret word and the duck will come down and pay you $50.00 dollars, it's acommon thing you see every day". The secret word could be anything and if the contestants said the word and it could be something really obscure, the stuffed duck came down and the music started. A bit of real obscure tv trivia from the late 1950's

@w972822m  Wow. My early years are a trivia question LOL 😂
