Garfield Goose WGN Correction
24 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Garfield Goose' was a show on WGN-TV, not WBKB. The reason for the confusion is that the lead Character was a hand puppet, designed and operated by Bruce Newton. The amazing Mr. Newton was under contract at the time to WBKB, but was allowed to work for the competition for that one show.

Bruce Newton also appeared as Shorty on 'Shock Theater' on WBKB in 1957. Shock Theater was the brainchild of the incomparable Terry Bennet, who also played the lead character Mad Marvin. Bruce's shorty was made-up to look like the Frankenstein Monster, due to his extreme height. Bruce was a talented artist, and a gentle soul.

Both Bruce Newton and Terry Bennett added immeasurably to the wild creativity that distinguished WBKB from every other television station in America. All worked under a literate, talent loving, visionary named Sterling 'Red' Quinlan. 'Red' presided over a magical loony bin of artists, actors, musicians, writers, comedians, directors, announcers, and personalities as big as The Ritz.

It was a Super Circus of entertainment in a brief, golden time.

I was the kid (literally) who bluffed himself into the candy store, and loved every minute of it.
