Editorial Reviews

The Howdy Doody Show made its debut on television in 1947. When The Howdy Doody Show first aired, there were only 20,000 American homes with television sets and NBC only had stations in six television markets. The show was credited as a major factor in the growth of NBC. The Howdy Doody Show went on to air 2,543 episodes, before running its final episode on September 24, 1960. The Howdy Doody Show set numerous benchmarks for television. It was the first network kids show to air five days a week, the first show on the air each day (it was preceded by the network's color pattern), the first television show ever broadcast in color, and the first show ever to air in more than 1,000 continuous episodes. While Howdy and his friend s entertained American children, they also sold television sets to American parents and demonstrated the potential of the new medium to advertisers.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Beware March 11, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    All potential buyers should be aware that these episodes are also included in the 40 episode box also sold by Mill Creek. I did not know this and bought both, only to discover that two discs on the bigger set are duplicated from this set. There was no way to know this ahead of time, as Mill Creek's website did not list the episodes on the 20 episode box. So don't buy both sets, unless you are buying one for yourself and one for a friend or family member.

    I purchased this for my brother's 60th birthday. (I also bought one for myself.)
    We were Howdy Doody fans in the 50's when the show was on tv. The quality of the collection is very good. Thanks for the memories!

    I purchased this item to show my granddaughters one of the programs I watched as a child. They loved it and always ask me to play it when they visit. They laugh at the skits of Howdy and friends just as much as I do. I really enjoy watching them have a good time while they view Howdy Doody.
