Re: “Does Anyone Remember This TV Show?

The original Looney Zoo show was on WMCT, Channel 5, hosted by Harry Mabrey. There were 3 puppets; an owl, a fox and an alligator that were manned by Ken Berryhill behind the stump. There was a children's audience that participated with the puppets and Harry.

I know because I randomly produced the show and worked the puppets in Berryhill's absence. It was a classic kid's show in Memphis and had high ratings and was lots of fun.

Brings back fond memories of live television in the 1950s and my days in the WMCT TV control room on Madison Ave.
