Trivia

This was one of the last programs at NBC to convert to color. It was also one of last (if not THE last) non-news programs to be broadcast "live". It went on the air every weekday morning at 9 am (following the "Today" show) from studio 8G in the RCA Building. While the studio was being converted to color in 1966, "Birthday House" held court in studio 8H where Saturday Night Live (1975) now lives. See more »

An amusing kids' show
16 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show as a youth. It featured a bunch of kids having a birthday party. It was amusing enough. The most specific thing I remember is that the boom microphone was a character in the show, and each time it was introduced, Paul Tripp used to sing,

"Hi, Mike! Hi, Mike! I like to say, 'Hi, Mike!' Hi, Mike! Hi, Mike! I like you very much!"

I guess that speaks for the power of music, that I would remember that little ditty.

Also, each December, the show would feature commercials for "The Christmas That Almost Wasn't," which would show up in movie theaters as a matinée each year. The commercial featured the scene where the villain, Rossano Brazzi, would bellow, "Merry Christmas, I don't think!!" I'm pretty sure us kids dragged my poor mother out to see it two or three years in a row...
