It’s all memory flashes back to my boomer past: “Say Kids What Time Is It?” What are you talking about? Well, it’s Howdy Doody time of course. One can’t believe that there was something called a Dilly Dally, Rootie Kazootie, Polka Dottie, Kukla, Ollie and a Jerry Mahoney. It’s a secret code between aging boomers who know the name of puppets and marionettes that are all but forgotten thoughts among still pictures and poor quality images seen on the internet. Then of course who doesn’t know what happens when Froggy plucks his magic twanger on Andy’s Gang?
