For those of you that grew up in Los Angeles, Calif. in the late 1950’s though the 1960’s you may remember these television kid show heros and personalities. From Left to right: Skipper Frank, Engineer Bill, Bill Stulla, Tom Hatten , Dick Sargent, Captain Zoom, Chucko the Clown, Chef Millani (who was also the image for Chef Boy Ardee), Sheriff John and Walker Edmiston. From time to time in the Los Angeles area they would make special appearances with circuses and variety shows that we were with. The kid show characters were a huge draw for the show and really were not that expensive to hire.
