Trivia

The producers had researched automobile history to avoid duplicating a real car. However, there was a real-life, unrelated Porter automobile. The small Bridgeport, Connecticut-based company produced 36 cars between 1919 and 1922. It was named for automotive engineer and designer Finley Robinson Porter, creator of the T-head Mercer automobile. See more »

I remember the bouncing ball over the song words.
15 May 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I have always remembered the song words appearing under the picture on the TV in white and a small white ball bouncing across the words in time to the music so that you could sing along. As my mother was born in 1928 she used to say 'that's me' so I can always remember her age as I thought she meant she was a 1928 porter. I don't remember the program title at all or the fact that the car was really meant to be a mother, just that as a kid I liked the show but couldn't often watch it all for some reason, maybe a paper round or something. I must have been 12 then though I thought I was younger, oh well. I remember Mr.Ed and shows like that being on around then. Of course the car looked black to me as our 'telly' was black and white, no colour. If anyone has a copy of a show I would love to watch just one for old times sake!
