Howdy Doody Show Buffalo Bob DVD LOST EPISODES TV (1947)

Howdy Doody was a children's television program (with a decidedly frontier/western theme, although other themes also colored the show) that aired on NBC from 1947 through 1960. It was a pioneer in children's programming and set the pattern for many similar shows. It was also a pioneer in early color production as NBC used the show in part to sell color television sets in the 1950s. The Howdy Doody Time theme was sung to the tune of the standard Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay[ Howdy Doody himself was a freckle-faced boy marionette, and was originally voiced by Andrew Lane Wolfson. Other puppet characters included Heidi Doody (Howdy's sister), Phineas T. Bluster, Dilly Dally, Princess Summerfall Winterspring, and the curious Flub-a-Dub (a combination of eight animals -- a duck's bill, a cat's whiskers, a spaniel's ears, a giraffe's neck, a dachshund's body, a seal's flippers, a pig's tail, and an elephant's memory). The show's host was Bob Smith, who was dubbed "Buffalo Bob" early in the show's run. Smith wore cowboy garb, and the name of the puppet "star" was derived from the western U.S. expression "howdy do," a familiar form of the greeting "How Do You Do?" The name was the source of some childish crude humor, as "doody" was also a familiar child's euphemism for defecation. There also were several human characters, most notably the mute Clarabell the Clown, who communicated by honking horns on his belt and squirting seltzer, and Chief Thunderthud, head of the Ooragnak tribe of Native Americans, who originated the cry "Kowabonga!". Princess Summerfall Winterspring, originally a puppet, was later played by the actress Judy Tyler. The characters inhabited the fictional town of "Doodyville". Clarabell was first played by Bob Keeshan, who continued in that role until 1952. Keeshan later became Captain Kangaroo. At the end of the final episode, aired September 24, 1960, Clarabell (then played by Lew Anderson) broke his series-long silence to say the final words of the final broadcast: "Goodbye, kids". Lew Anderson followed Bobby Nicholson, who also played Doodyville's J. Cornelius Cobb.
