31 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show aired on radio for years then went to BOTH radio and TV before it ran exclusively on TV.

Opening Line; COME ON IN, IT'S TIME FOR ART LINKLETTR'S HOUSE PARTY. The opening shot was a rectangular sign that said ART LINKLETTER'S HOUSE PARTY with "traveling" lights around the perimeter.

Music was provided by MUZZY MARCELLINO - a small music group. Muzzy was the guy that WHISTLED in the hit record, "THE HIGH & THE MIGHTY." Art often went into the audience and interviewed people.

Art's program featured the winners of the Pillsbuy Bake-off (Pillsbury was a big sponsor).

The announcer for the program was JACK SLATTERY.

The last 5 minutes of the program featured 5 primary school kids, whom Art asked questions, usually designed to embarrass their parents. This segment led to a series of books "Kids Say the Darndest Things."
