Besides Wonderama, does anyone remember Just for Fun? It was also hosted by Sonny Fox. There were two teams, a Blue and a Gold Team, who would vie for points throughout the show and the winning team would have the highest points at the end of show. My cousin and I were on the show. Our Brownie troop was one of many other Boy & Girl Scouts & we had a blast! Part of the points earned was from a Mr. Softie truck outside the studio. Depending upon the flavor ice cream selected by passersby won points for the teams. Vanila = Gold. Chocolate = Blue.

I also was on Just for Fun and Wonderama a few times. My school St Vincent Ferrer was 2 blocks from the WNEW studios on 67 St. They used to call the school if they were short on kids for that day.
