Ah, the memories.  I was one of those "back in the day".

When the set went on the fritz, dad used to take 3 tubes out, used masking tape to label the tube and socket.  Then we walked down to the drug store and used the tube tester to see which one was bad.  Sometimes it took 2 or 3 trips.  Now the TV goes out, toss it and go to Walmart for another!

WOW, I hate to admit it but I do remember those plastic screens!  Also the screens where you could draw pictures with the host of the children's shows.  I think the name of the show I remember is Rinky DInk or something close to that.

THAT’S IT!!!  Thanks for finding and posting.   Oh the beautiful blue skies and green grass and tinted everything in the middle. Yeah, “SO PLEASING TO THE EYE” - NOT! 🤮

Winky Dink and You

Ah, memories. The show I HATED was the Terrytoon Circus show with Claude Kirsher and his Clownie puppet because they ended the show with “and now it’s time for you kids to go to bed” so my mother MADE US GO TO BED!  😡 

Anyone else remember him, or any of the old 1950/1960 shows.  There‘s a fun site called Guess the Retro TV Show if you’re up for the challenge.
