Loved the Kuklapolitans
6 July 2001 | by mikeschiffrinSee all my reviews

This was more than a kid show. If I remember correctly some of the sponsors were Ford, RCA Victor and Life Magazine. I can remember most of the Kuklapokitan Players. Kukla, Ollie (The Dragon), Beulah (The Witch), Mercedes, Fletcher Rabbit, Madame Oglepuss and Cecil Bill (The Sailor who only said "Tooey, Ta Tooey"). I think Ollie had a sister named Olivia. Does anyone remember any others?
