Hiya, Kids!!: A '50s Saturday Morning Sabrina The Teenage Witch: The Complete Animated Series

13 May 2008 8:27 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

During television's infancy, it didn't take much to keep viewers entertained—especially if those viewers were children themselves. The four-disc DVD set Hiya, Kids!!: A '50s Saturday Morning collects episodes from 22 different '50s TV series, from legendary shows like Time For Beany and Sky King to long-forgotten regional hits like Ding Dong School and The Magic Clown. The episodes are between 15 and 30 minutes long, in kinescoped black and white, and about as thrilling to watch as a test pattern. But even test patterns can hold some fascination when viewed from the right angle. Fans of vintage TV personalities will enjoy seeing scandal-plagued game-show icon Jack Barry hosting the "kids say the darndest things" forum Juvenile Jury, and Price Is Right announcer Johnny Olson hosting Kids And Company. Those who like picking through old TV shows for quaint racism should pay special attention to The Pinky Lee Show. »
