Watch 1950sTube video Howdy Doody – Cowabonga
.
THE HOWDY DOODY TV SHOW RAN FROM 1947 TO 1960, BUNKY.
Howdy Doody show was the first kids show. Howdy was the string operated vantriliquist puppet doll. The kids would sit at home watching the TV test pattern in the afternoon (five days a week) until Buffalo Bob would come on the TV and say “Hay kids, what time is it?” He would get back a resounding “It’s Howdy Doody Time” from kids all across America. Who knows. You might have been one of them. I know that I was one of them, to be sure. What time it it? …

And who wouda thunk that Buffalo Bob left the show in 1952 but had a later claim to fame as the ubiquitous “Captain Kangaroo” (true story).

Video ORIGINS OF COWABUNGA 1960.
In modern ‘surfer talk’ the word cowabunga is always followed with the word ‘dude”. This likely had its origins from the shortener name of Howdy Doody into simply the abbreviated form ‘dude’.
So ya got that straight now, dude and dudettes? (say yes) ;=)

Hi. My name is Howdy Doody, boys and girls. What time it? Right. It’s “Howdy Doody (and Doodette) time”. I think I can get the special interest groups to finance my race into public office. And no one will see who is ‘pulling my strings’.

What’s this. Just in from the Dissociated Press (AP) wire service…Captain what? Oh…
.

That’s right boys and girls, Buffalo Bob got reincarnated (or recycled) into the famous and historically significant ‘Captain Kangaroo”. Well, it’s really a small world after all (or y’all). €;={D.
