I don't remember the floppy show, but my mom told me that when she was little she was on the show. I don't remember what she did, but she won like a 12 pack of some kind of pop. Woohoo

i always watched both the noon and 3:30 show of floppy. i couldn't wait to come home from school to watch floppy. i was in third grade and a girl in our class was having a birthday party at the floppy show, i was so hoping to get an invitation, i was so happy and excited when i got my envelope that said i was invited. after the show they gave us a sack with food in it, an autographed picture with duane and floppy and a bottle of pop. i used to have a floppy shirt when i was five years old, i wore the heck out of that shirt. brings back great memories. to the one who has the banks for sale, just wondering if you still have them? if so contact me at: jadedheartedangel@msn.com

I was on the floppy show in the 80's is there any way to still get a copy of the video? Are there archives that can be searched? I was so pumped to say "here's our next cartoon!". Sadly the VHS tape got ruined in a vcr...:( I have always wanted to get another copy.

When I was 8 years old, the daycare I went to in 1971 was taking a field trip to The Floppy Show. I was so excited! We lined up, and anxiously waited to get in the van outside. Suddenly,a boy standing behind me pushed my head into the brick wall next to me. I immediately had head pain and dizziness. I cried when told I could not see Floppy. Soon, I was vomiting.
It was not fair, the boy who hurt me was able to go. Probably because his mother worked there.

I so remember watching and being on the Floppy show with Ellett, Floppy and still to this day I miss them alot. I have since moved from Iowa to Oregon but there isnt a day i dont remember watching The Floppy Show. When I see the old bugs bunny and friends cartoons it brings me back home to Iowa. My family still lives there and I come back to visit every now and then, but I now have another place to visit while Ill im there. Thank You for putting Ellett,Floppy and friends in a good place.

I have 2 Floppy Banks circa 1965 that were a promotion from Home Federal. I would like to sell them. One is in perfect condition, the other one's rubber plug on the bottom of the bank is cracked (dried out) and cannot be used, but I have it. That bank's top is fine except for a few small scratches on one side. Both banks say 'Floppy Savers Club' on the front and 'Home Federal' on the both sides. The back is plain. Floppy is two tone orange with a red sweater and white bone. If you are interested, please respond to this post. I am in Des Moines. And yes, when I was a child I watched Floppy!

How could someone get a copy of one of the floppy shows and did they keep a record of the children on the shows?

I grow up with the Floopy and Ellet show. and in 3th grade I was called scary Mary after the puppet that Ellet brought on the show, I wasn't very happy about it then and I came home from school several afternoons with tears, but now looking back 3rd grade was one of my happier times even with the nick name of scary Mary.
