Storyline

"Cartoon Express" was a train-themed kids' show hosted every weekday afternoon by "Engineer Bill" Stulla on KHJ Channel 9, in Los Angeles. Surrounded by an elaborate model-train set, "Engineer Bill" would introduce cartoons, play a game called "Red Light, Green Light," read the names of viewers who weren't feeling well - for whom he would ring the "get-well bell," chat with a child guest and, of course, promote products. Written by D.H. Martin

I was there

I was a guest on what I knew it as "The Engineer Bill Show" at the old KHJ-TV Studios on Melrose in Hollywood in the early 60's. I was maybe 6 years old at the time and I barely remember anything. However one thing stands out dramatically. I was used to watching the show on our old black & white television and when I got on the set, everything was in color. It was like stepping into Oz. I also remember getting lots of toys and candy. The episode I was on was also the last show before they changed the format. They changed it from a modern style set and opening to a more older type steam engine and western theme. I wish we had VCR's back then to see the show again.
