Gabby's Great Career Sacrifice, 14 October 2014
Author: phaecops-1 from United States

As a child of 8 years in Baltimore, Md I can distinctly remember watching Gabby on that small b&w screen warning us to "back away from your television areal sets" whereupon he would shoot a cannon full of Quaker puffed wheat or rice at the camera. Even to this day I feel an indescribable, unexplained aesthetic attraction to the Quaker Oats puffed rice cereal box, which may explain why the company has not changed their graphics is 60 years. My recollection of the show is that it was longer than 15 minutes. I recall him introducing a western movie. It could very well be that the local station used his show as a lead in then ran a western.

It is said that Gabby had all his teeth pulled so as to more authenticate his character as a western sidekick.
