A rare kinescope of GRANDPA'S PLACE, a children's show from the Dumont Network produced at WDAB-TV in Washington, D.C. and hosted by Lee Reynolds in the role of Grandpa, who converses with various toys and other magical characters, including the puppet Jingle Dingle; runs contests, including one offering the giant Cocoa Marsh Train, plugs Flavor Straws; and demonstrates the Remco Wireless Radio Station.
MR. I. MAGINATION was a fantasy show hosted by its creator, Paul Tripp, as a sort-of "You Are There" for kids. Younger viewers would write in with suggestions of the stories and subjects, usually about characters that appealed to younger viewers, that they wanted to see, and Tripp and his cast of players would act in the stories on screen. This week's show is devoted to sharpshooter Annie Oakley and her rise from obscure backwoods girl to international celebrity.
