    1. I remember this… no details come to mind, but it’s like a dark memory from childhood.

    2. Ok, here’s the skinny …
      I was born in 1943 and TV came to Tallahassee in ’51: WCTV Ch 6 brdcst six hrs a day. Winky Dink came on Sat am, and us kiddies needed Saran wrap to overlay the screen so we could use crayons to connect dots – thereby giving WD a car to ride in or a bat to hit the baseball, etc. Hot stuff and VERY geeky, 58 years ago! Pres Ike smoked on the same TV later. lol
      All true. Cheers,
      Robert A.

    3. PS… your pic is misleading as all TV
      was B&W monochrome (and snowy).

    4. @Robert: Thank you for shedding light on WD’s origins –appreciated.
      As for “misleading”, I think the pic is probably showing a comic or coloring-book tie-in with the show you describe, so the fact that it’s in color isn’t much of a stretch.

    5. In the 60’s, I used a marks-a-lot and windex because I did not have enough money to send away for the official Winky Dink “kit”. :-p

    6. Made by Dell, apparently. Was the show made with shoddy production values and useless?

      Wake up. Michael Dell wasn’t even born
      when this show ran.

      Likewise. I was being sarcastic. Apparently I forgot to use the magical ¶ symbol.
