For 40 years, I've had people tell me that I was crazy because I remembered a "puppet dog" who sometimes did the weather on a tv station that I tuned in to, in South Bend, 45 years ago! Even people older than I who have lived there all their lives had NO memory of this.....dog!
Aha!!!!!!!!!! He (it) did exist dammit!!!!

Oh my! I have talked to many older than me that don't remember him! How could that be? Maybe they didn't have a TV? That photo you put up is the only one I have ever been able to find of him. I even contacted the TV station who reports they have no photos!! He is such a wonderful childhood memory. So I am certainly with you!!

Wasn't he also the host of a cartoon program on TV in the late afternoons?

Yes he was on late in the agternoons and evevn had some talented kids on to perform whatever it is they did well. My brother actually was on his show because he played the drums very well and it was local. I can't believe I found this. It just came up in conversation and I thought I would googlre it and wala, here it is. Good to know someone else remebers this. I'm 59 and remember it well.

Dexter David "A Rolling Stone Gathers no Moss" Donovon III! I watched that show (Kidsville, USA) every afternoon after high school (Riley) and before I went to work at Goldblatt's (in the Town and Country Shopping Center) when I lived in South Bend, IN. A great show put together by a great talent. Later, when I was in the Army, a friend who went to Notre Dame said that D.D. Donovon was hugely popular at that university. Glad I found this site as I was beginning to think that all of this happened in an alternate reality.
