    That version was hosted by Ron Wiley.

    Re: Kids TV

    Just came across an old tape of All My Children on KITV from 1978, what follows it is the Brady Kid's cartoon show in the afternoon, I see commercials for Larry Price when he was a sportscaster on KITV and a Longs ad where you only see the people's slippers walking thru the store shopping amongst other old ads.

    Anyone remember this?

    but I wish it was on DVD. I still have my VHS player, but I don't know how much longer it's going to be working.
    You can get a new VCR for about $5.00 more than this video cost...
    Or you could Dub the VHS to DVD.

    Someone should point out that the host of the Captain Honolulu TV show was Bob Smith, and that he was not Captain Honolulu, but Sergeant Sacto.

    I may have some details not quite right, but I think it went like this...

    Captain Honolulu was modeled on a successful show in Sacramento, Captain Sacramento. But the guy who was supposed to appear as Captain Honolulu failed to show up when the show started, and so his 'sidekick,' Sergeant Sacto (Sacto as in Sacramento) filled in, and stuck.

    I'm sure someone will correct this if it's off base.

    Haha this is my friends membership but he asked me if I knew Checkers & Pogo and Captain Honolulu and I asked why and he showed me this. Being that I'm older than the trees planted in the new subdivisions in Waipahu above H1 He's letting put in a response. Talk about going back in time yeah I do remember those shows. My brother and I were cub scouts then and my mother a den mother and she got our troupe to go to the Checkers & Pogo Show. I remember having to cheer and stomp everytime they raised a sign.
    Also around that time was the Bozo the Clown Show. I remember being on that show too and actually participated in a game where I had sit on a balloon to pop it.
    Anybody remember Professor Fun? I met him at a dinner party giving by one of my many aunts and uncles when I went for a sleepover. I distinctly remember walking down the hallway going to get something to drink and heard a crowd on the patio and there was a tall man with spectacles and him asking who I was and all I could say was you're Professor fun and then I heard the crowd chuckle behind him and he had a big smile on his face.
    Funny the things we remember.
    I remember when Checkers & Pogo would send kids a packet to start up a Muscular Dystrophy party. I did that a few times. We'd have games and shows. Everybody had to cough up some change before coming in. LOL. We even dressed up some neighborhood pets to look like lions and bears and longhorns and charged a nickel or so to visit our homemade zoo.
    Crazy kine stuff we did.

    Anyone on this board ever appeared on KGMB TV's "Checkers and Pogo" show? Anyone remember "Captain Honolulu", "Romper Room," or the Lucky Luck's kids TV show?

    This is a trivia but would be nice to know the answer. In the Our Gang TV show, who was the character that used to live in Hawaii and worked at Pearl Harbor at one time? I think, his employment at Pear Harbor wasn't real long, maybe a year or two.
    .

    fit da bill?!

    Jay R. Smith (1915-2002)

    Jay R. Smith was born on 29th August 1915. When he joined up with the little rascals he was already ten years old, still he could stay for the next four years in the serial.

    With the begin of the sound film and grow out of the children's shoes, the film business didn't offer any occupation for Jay R. Smith.

    During World War II he served in the US Army. After the end of the war he took over a paint business. After his retirement he went to Hawaii but the last years of his life he had spent in Nevada.

    Re: Kids TV

    loved seeing the C&P retrospect on KGMB a whle ago. Motivated me to then buy the video.
    quite dissapointed to see they weren't one and the same thing;
    that goofy intro music made up of alotta wacky 'found' sounds and effects is missing from the tape version. That's one of the things I liked most about the show...

    My dad could not remember his name, but worked with this "character". I tried researching this once buit could not find who he had in mind. My dad said he would recognize the person if he say the picture.

    I hope someone has the answer to this.

    So Vic...you watched Tom and Jerry? Geez now I know where you got your craziness from. Remember the time you mooned I-94 from the parking lot back in the Queen Street days? By the way whatever happened to Mike G. I remember when some girl called in to the morning drive and she asked what he looked like, and Rory told her if she knew what Shaggy on Scooby Doo looked like. I think that pretty much destroyed that girl's fantasy of Mike.

    Does Professor Fun still life in Ainakoa? The one street Mauka and parallel to Malia street in front of Star of the Sea school? When I was a kid I used to deliver the Hawaii Times Japanese language newspaper to a house near his. He had this sign in front of his house that said, "Beware, Killer Rabbits".

    I was on the Checkers & Pogo show too, remember the jar full of pennies and the strawberry jello pie eating contest? All that in the KGMB studio, kinda where the news is shot now.

    Re: Kids TV

    When I was a junior in HS, Pogo was the keynote speaker for the graduating senior class.
    However, my excitement about getting to see one of my childhood icons in person was quickly extinguished when he showed up in a coat and tie...

    (I had to go into therapy after that.)
