Remember when you could go to a shoe store and
they had some kind of fluroscope X ray and you
could see the bones in your foot?

Hiya kids, Hiya, hiya!

Also remember some kind of chipmunk/mouse on the
program too. Been a long time.

Plunk your magic twanger...

Few FReepers under 60 years of age will remember Froggie the Gremlin (look up old time radio's Big John and Sparky).

BOOINNNG!

One of those long in the tooth here.

I think it was just Froggie and not Froggie the Gremlin, but I guess a gremlin fits the theme here. Wasn’t Andy Devine his human sidekick?

Did not like the show much because I thought the frog was rude. However, I do remember one of his insults:
“Are you as stupid as you look?” Don’t ask me why I remember that one, but I do.

Uh-oh, I take back my remark about the “gremlin” part, now that I have seen the YouTube posting.

Smilin’ Ed McConnell and “The Buster Brown Gang” with “Midnight” the Cat - “Ni-i-ice”, and “Froggy the Gremlin” - “Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy!” Sproi-oi-oing!

And, yes...I am quite long in the tooth! I heard that program in about 1944 - 45, around noon on Saturdays, on a battery radio (because our farming community in south central PA did not get electrified by REA until 1946). I was 5 years old and remember it well.

I heard that program in about 1944 - 45, around noon on Saturdays...absolutely, after a whole Saturday morning of great listening including "No School Today with Big Jon and Sparkie" (and the "Teddy Bear's Picnic"), "Let's Pretend", and "Grand Central Station"...according to "The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio" (Dunning), McConnell started the show in 1944 on radio and took it to television in 1950; he died in 1955 and Andy Devine kept the program going until 1960....

I got shoes
You got shoes
Why everybody's got to have shoes
And there's only one kinda of shoes for me
Good ole Buster Brown Shoes
......

(Sound of a dog barking). Then a young boy’s voice says, “That’s my dog “Tighe.” He lives in shoe. I’m Buster Brown. Look for me in there, too!”

I may not remember what I had for breakfast today, but I remember those old radio programs as though it were yesterday.

And Froggy in his gravelly voice used to repeat himself all the time, as in “I’m going to sing my song now, I will I will” - I forgot to include “The Billie Burke Program” and ‘Land of the Lost” in the list of Saturday morning programs - I was listening in the Philly suburbs, not too far from where you were in south central Pennsylvania - I actually used to make up excuses to get out of going when friends would call up wanting me to “come over and play” so that I could spend Saturday mornings curled up in front of the old Sears Silverton radio console listening to those shows - I’ve found such contentment only rarely since.....
