CUTE Factoid

On December 27, 1947 The Howdy Doody Show debuted on NBC television with the voice of Buffalo Bob Smith. I wasn't born YET... but I do remember the reruns in the late 60's. Howdy Doody himself is a freckle-faced boy marionette with 48 freckles, one for each state of the union (up until January 3, 1959). The original Howdy Doody marionette now resides at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
