Television in the 1950’s was a big thing! My family brought one when I was about 5 years of age. It was a big event I don’t recall the make or model but it had a small black and white screen as all were that type at the time. There wasn’t much cartoons I remember a few like, Farmer Gray, mighty mouse, and the best for me were the Saturday Westerns!
My Favorite was The Roy Rodgers show! With Dale Evans, Trigger the horse, and Bullet his Dog.. Then Gene Autry, Hope Along Cassidy, The Lone Ranger and more. I loved watching them and my hero was: Look up in the sky! it’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, No it’s Superman! Then there were the Soap Operas, Playhouse 90, the Honeymooners, Your show of shows, The game shows, Captain Video vand his Video Rangers! and much more.
