Remember Romper Room?

Romper Room is a children’s television series which ran in the United States from 1953 to 1994 as well as at various times in Australia, Canada, Japan, Puerto Rico, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The program is targeted at preschoolers (children five years of age or younger). The show would syndicate and would have different hosts depending on where it was being broadcast. Me, I grew up with “Miss MaryAnn” as a host. How about you?

Watching this still makes me smile.

    Man, I always wanted her to see me through the magic mirror. She never did. :-(

    Wow, this is awesome. This was definitely not my host, though. I remember her being a bit darker, with black hair. But this brings back great memories.
