Remember how that show started? "In Hawkins Falls, people say...." then came the theme song, "Skip to My Lou."
I was a lot younger, like three or four and what I remember most about Hawkins Falls was that it came before Howdy Doody which was my favorite show. Could you imagine what it was like to be kid having to sit around while this soapie was talking about issues I couldn't understand, but I did know I had to sit through it to watch Howdy, followed by Rootie Kazootie, Gabby Hayes, whom I just adored, Kukla Fran and Ollie, the incomparable Captain Video and his Video Rangers and finally, my day ended because the absolutely boring John Cameron Swayze came on with the Camel News Caravan and "Today's News Today...Glad we can get together." Then as a chaser was Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians.
