Copper was a dog.

Ms Wertz used to do the weather wearing lingerie, believe it or not.

I can remember when "Mr. Rogers" was called "The Children's Hour". I loved it! I was actually surprised when I had kids to find out it had made the "big time" on PBS. My kids loved it, too.

Commercials:

Dr. Baum in the Baum Bldg., the dentist you can trust because he trusts you!

Easy credit, easy credit, Wilkins is the place where you can get it. Wilkins Jewelers sponsored the Wilkins' Amateur Hour. I can't remember if that was on TV but the commercials were.

I believe she did some in depth investigative reporting on Bubby Brister, literally.

Ok, who's old enough to remember Ed and Wendy King? KDKA - It was a radio talk show - call in type but you didn't hear the caller.

Had to get into the Way-Back machine to remember that one.

Of coarse I remember Studio Wrestling, Chiller Theater, Adventure Time, Bozo (chanel 53's version) and Romper Room. Also Rege Cordic's movie show as well as Bowling for dollars and Jr High Quiz.
