The Roy Rogers Show

Oh yes, simpler times, indeed!
You knew who the good and bad guys were. No question at all, it was a very black and white world, with a comedic side kick tossed in for good measure.

Life was good and the cowboy was king. Roy Rogers was and is known as....
The King Of The Cowboys.

This was one of my most favorite all time western programs....
from Yesterday TV.

Yes, Roy Rogers was one of those singing cowboys and sold oodles of music
back in his day.

He was a movie star as well as.......

When I was a kid, I just wanted to be a cowboy.

Everyone knew the.... "Happy Trails Song." Adults would hum it and the kids would sing along with the words.

Little Lulu Moppet

 Who remembers Little Lulu Cartoons? Just a bit before my time, perhaps yours too? The one above is from 1946.

According to Wikipedia..... Little Lulu is the nickname for Lulu Moppet, a comic strip character created in 1935 by Marjorie Henderson Buell.
She debuted in The Saturday Evening Post on 23 February 1935 in a single panel, appearing as a flower girl at a wedding and strewing the aisle with banana peels.
 The Little Lulu panel continued to run weekly in The Saturday Evening Post......
 until 30 December 1944.

After all these years Little Lulu still has many fans and her products, are still in demand.
Some of the collectables that were saved, are still  commanding top dollar, even if only in fair shape.
