Howdy's History
Peanut Gallery
Howdy & The Gang

   Say Kids! This is your good buddy Howdy Doody! Join me now as we explore how the Howdy Doody Show came to be and forever influenced children's television. Each of our shows started with the same great intro, you've grown to love. Say it with me....

   "Say kids, What time is it?"

   "It's Howdy Doody time!"

   Those simple, dynamic words introduced a new mass communications medium and molded a generation. The "Baby Boomers" had a voice. That voice was my very best friend's: radio performer and musician "Buffalo Bob" Smith.
I am his trusty sidekick, a twenty-seven inch marionette. You can call me Howdy.
