Sunday Mornings Weren't Bad, for a TV-Junkie Kid
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember "The Magic Door", too; it was on WBBM-TV2 immediately preceding "Project Head Start", a "Romper Room" sort of show for inner-city kids hosted by Miss Felice Mooney. Another thing I remember about "The Magic Door": every Hanukkah, Tiny Tov would appear in costume, but not miniaturized, and would play his guitar and lead the boys and girls in songs about the Festival of Lights. The highlight of the show would be the reading of the Hanukkah story from the Talmud. Sunday mornings weren't too bad, TV-wise, at least in the late 60's; WMAQ-TV5 had the early "Astroboy" cartoons followed by "By Gemini", set aboard a lunar module (it was the Christian equivalent of "The Magic Door"), WBKB/WLS TV7 (via the ABC network feed) aired Saturday-morning "weak sisters" like "The Smokey Bear Show" and "Curiosity Shop", then the evergreen "Bullwinkle Show" and the public-affairs show "Discovery"; while WGN aired "Superman" and "Flash Gordon" reruns. It didn't beat weekdays on WGN, WFLD and WCIU, but they served rather well. Chicago kids had so much to watch in those days!
