Floppy wasn’t just a puppet to ‘the kids’
I have often lamented that today’s children have no idea what they have missed out on. And, this past week, I found myself mourning another part of my childhood that appears to be lost forever.
I remember playing outside — a lot — in all kinds of weather. But, I also remember all of the children’s television programming I watched. No, Ty, I’m not talking about “classic” episodes of “Transformers” or “G.I. Joe,” either (although I did watch quite a bit of those, too).
No, I’m talking about children’s programming, the likes of which haven’t been around for at least 20 years in Iowa. And for those of you who grew up with Bill Riley’s “Hey, Bob” and “Variety Theatre,” I’m afraid I wasn’t around for those shows, but I’ve heard about them.
