ICAD Day 12: TV

ICAD Day 12: TV

The television set I remember from the mid-1950s was a monstrosity with a tiny screen. The cabinet was painted grey and pink, with a scribble design. Of course, the picture was black and white. I sat on the floor in front of it usually watching westerns or cartoons, or maybe I Love Lucy if nothing else was on. Only two or three channels, and only a few hours of programming every day.


I am participating in the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge. During June and July, I intend to do something creative every day–a little something, just big enough to fit on an index card. Visit ICAD 2016’s Facebook page if you would like so see what other participants are doing.

  1. It is amazing that you remember what it looked like and can draw it. I remember watching our set. Shows I watched: Romper Room. Ding Dong School, I Love Lucy, Lassie, Howdy Doody, Captain Kangaroo, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, Lawrence Welk. Love your drawings!

    • Oh, yeah, I remember all those shows. You just gave me a flashback–watching Romper Room with my neighbor, Bonnie Ann. “Romper, bomper, stomper, boo, tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic mirror, tell me today, did all my friends have fun at play?” And the “teacher,” Miss Something-or-other, would look through the mirror and recite names, and I would hold my breath waiting for her to say “Andrea,” and she never did. But she said “Bonnie” more than once over the years.
