This kids show was a bit before my time. But surely some Slice Blog scanners remember it.
Perhaps you have read about it. With the help of their parents, viewers could order a special plastic sheet that one placed right on the TV screen. Then young Winkers and Winkettes could get out a crayon and take part in the show's connect-the-dots segment.
Just think. Interactivity in the 1950s.
Anyway, some kids who didn't have the special plastic sheet got out a crayon and drew right on the TV screen. This caused comment among parents.
Ever tried to get crayon off a television screen?
But, of course, my real reason for this post is the fact that it is fun to say “Winky Dink.”
