    To me and all the boomers from the Phila. area, our gal Sal was the host of Popeye theater. She babysat us after school with cartoons and Three Stooges shorts. This clip shows her in a movie that also has Pete Boyle in it. The actor is playing his father, Pete Boyle Sr., who also had a kid's program in Phila. A feature of Boyle's program was that he was always drawing sketches.

    Just about every large community had similar afternoon local programming for children. Our younger PF members probably never saw or heard of them. My favorite was "Uncle Dave and Pete the Penguin".
