Trivia

One episode of the show was broadcast in color in fall 1949, in Washington, D.C., as a demonstration to the FCC of RCA's line-sequential color TV system. The same episode was performed live a second time the same afternoon, for network broadcast in black and white, but using the experimental color cameras. See more »

KFO hosted CBS Children's Film Festival (1967)
31 May 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this on Saturday mornings and enjoyed the dialogue between Fran and the puppets, as well as their comments in regards to the film being watched. Ollie, who was a dragon, would often get flustered or frustrated with the suspense in the film and collapse his long neck onto the "stage". This show was fantastic!

When I first read that this show was filmed in the '40s & '50s I too was shocked. Yet, when I continued to search for further info I discovered the following on Wikipedia.

"In 1967, KFO began hosting CBS Children's Film Festival. In this context, their conversations were restricted to a brief introduction, commercial segues and a summary of the film, and could only provide a hint of what had made KFO so popular. Many people know the troupe only from this filmed show and their later taped series for PBS."

I would have loved to have seen the original show.
