You ought to go to visit Naomi (OldOldLadyofthe Hills) before you read this, as the two posts are related.
I popped in to visit Naomi tonight, as I do often, and found her post on The Match Game and Kukla, Fran and Ollie. Fran Allison was on TV when I was a child. She was not as well known in some circles as Howdy Doody, but Kukla, Fran and Ollie was a wonderful show for both kids and adults alike.
When she passed away, I cut the articles above from the newspaper, to keep them with my autograph. My children would have NO idea who she was except for these clippings.
The Match Game was one of the best ever on TV; not much of a "game", but a vehicle for the jokes and funny retorts of all the stars who appeared. Whenever I see a clip from one of their old shows, I am amazed at how much they "got away with" back in those days. Everything said was a double-entendre, and funny as they come. Thanks for the post idea, Naomi. Were it not for you, I might be posting some more matchbooks!
