I picked "Romper Room" 'cause it's the only one that was on the air when I was a kid.

Actually, I think my favorite would probably have been "Pinwheel," or maybe "Sesame Street" or "Fraggle Rock."

lol - what an odd poll! But I like it! Better than dwelling on all the stressful and bad stuff :-)

"Captain Kangaroo" was on when I was really little, but I was too young to really remember it.

I think I watched "Sesame Street" and "The Muppet Show" the most.

Commander Ralph played all the old Popeye cartoons the Black and White ones with Bluto. Ralph V. had the captain's hat on really got into his part.
