A true classic that needs to be preserved on DVD, 10 December 2006
Author: FishIM from New Jersey, USA

My mother used to annoy me by crooning the Rootie Kazootie song (she was never a smooth singer) but it stuck with me and over the years, bits and pieces of Rootie Kazootie history floated slowly into my consciousness. I feel that all the original TV shows from the 50's both good & bad should be preserved as these were an important hallmark of history. These were some of the first televised images ever seen and would probably have the same impact as discovering life on other worlds to some. We take it for granted now, but TV was revolutionary in the 50's. It was a HUGE leap forward from the telephone. It truly saddens me that so many of these shows are lost due to poor preservation at the time, but even sadder is the lack of interest in corporations to try to market & preserve our rich history because they feel so much falls short of todays standards in entertainment or general lack of interest. I for one feel a great sense of personal loss.
