A Masterpiece of Television
5 February 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What can be said about "Ding Dong School", which hasn't already been said? Well, this show is so awesome, I bet that even Goku would like it. Broadcast on NBC-TV for several years in the Fabulous 1950's, a time of hope and prosperity, "Ding Dong School" gave millions of young kids the life-lessons needed to grow up on the right path. Truly, no murderer ever watched this fifties gem. Filmed on a set the size of a modern day bathroom (maybe smaller), "Ding Dong School" didn't need fancy sets or cheesy theme muzak, it was just the host, Miss Frances, talking directing to the audience, demonstrating how to do simple things like playing with a small cloth, or blowing bubbles. She also read poetry on the show, which may explain why Baby Boomers can actually read, unlike a certain later generation who uses fake words like "rulz" and "dis". The commercials were always for healthy food, which helped the host gain critical acclaim. Overall, I'd say "Ding Dong School" is a true masterpiece of television, a wonderful show which is almost as good as another masterpiece of TV, "The Jack Benny Show".
