I probably got the title of the episode wrong. Here is another episode of "The Trouble with Father". In this episode, June starts to get a bit vain, so Stu and his friend decide to take them for hours at a fairground and more hours of dancing at a teen-hangout. All involved quickly regret it all. I alledge this episode runs between 30 seconds and 75 seconds too short.

An episode of "Ding Dong School", a popular pre-schoolers series. Year unknown (I'm looking into this). A previous episode (from 1953) has also been uploaded. This episode is infamous for the sandwich made by Miss Frances, containing peanut butter, lettuce, and banana.

Another misc episode of the 50's TV series "You Asked For It", featuring a diver and an octopus, a theremin player, special effects demonstations, among others. As this TV series could never be broadcast again, it may be considered "ephemeral TV". This was originally broadcast sometime between 1950 and 1959.

Game show in which a panel of youngsters answer questions sent in by the viewers.The viewers letter which is chosen to be used on air receives a 50 dollar govt. bond and a years supply of scotch tape. The first topic is quite interesting, it concerns an 8 year old boy who doesn't want to wear a kilt because his friends will think he is a sissy. Host of the show is Jack Barry. A young lady known as the Scotch girl keeps us informed about scotch tape. The show ran from 1947 till 1954.

An old commercial, probably from 1965, for a skin cleanser called "Noxzema". This commercial is as average as a mid-1960's commercial can get. In other words, a standard, ordidary, run-of-the-mill skin-care commercial. Nothing special. At all.

A slightly unusual 1967 commercial for the oddly-named "Life" cereal. The color is badly faded, though. An example of a 1960s commercial aimed at females.

This is a extremely rare Kids show from the early 50's called "The Magic Clown", with Bonomo Candy being plugged 1,446,234 times. Most certainly not "Quality TV", But certainly better than "Jerry Springer".

Not to be confused with "Murder By Television" starring Bela Lugosi. This film is about a young inventor trying to get his television system financed. A gang of crooks are out to stop him. This film is considered science fiction by many because the concept of television was still on the drawing boards in the 30's, but it's also a comedy. Stars Lyle Talbot, Mary Astor, Nat Pendleton, and Joyce Compton. Whether you would consider this scifi or not, you should find it entertaining anyway.

A classic Television commercial for a UNIVAC computer. This commercial is from a 5 February 1956 CBS-TV telecast. It also promotes CBS-TV's weather service. Pretty cool commercial if you ask me.
