It's Howdy Doody Time! I saw this cookie jar in a shop and do not know if it's new or vintage but it reminds me of early black and white television in the USA. Howdy Doody was a popular children's program and it was telecast live so anything could happen. It was hosted by Buffalo Bob and had a clown called Clarabelle. They were real but most of the other characters were puppets.
Besides Howdy, there was grouchy Mr. Bluster and Princess Winterspring Summerfall, and more. Click here for a link to more information.
Here's a link to a Youtube video with the theme song. Click Here!
Please comment and add any other memories of this program if you can.
