The Golden Age of Chicago Children’s Television by Ted Okuda and Jack Mulqueen (791.45 OKU)

Every day my sister and I would run home to eat lunch and watch Bozo’s Circus, so with much delight I started reading The Golden Age of Chicago Children’s Television by Ted Okuda and Jack Mulqueen. I was not disappointed. The book covers the history of children’s shows that were originated and produced in Chicago from the late forties to the early seventies. You will find chapters on Kukla, Fran and Ollie, Frazier Thomas and Garfield Goose, Ray Rayner and Friends, Bozo’s Circus and much more. If you grew up watching these shows or are a television buff, you will certainly enjoy this book.  –  Review by Julie

        Very true – of course if we want a Volume II, there need to be good sales for Volume I…
