I remember Pixann & Gene London, and cheif halftown, and other kid shows, what a time. Wait till I tell my brothers about this, they'll laugh. I met Gene London, on a school trip in person, through our high school teacher, Mr. Brown, who took us teenagers there, Ha! Ha! My brothers laughed then. I thought it was great. I loved those shows and have very fond memories of them. Thanks so much, for bringing back these lost memories.

warren wright willie the worm is a distant relative of mine. As far as I know he is my mother's third cousin I believe. She hung out with him when they were still kids. At the time he was going to acting school. I always wanted to meet him. I'm not sure if he is still alive. I hope so. My mother now deceased is Anna Kathryn Moore and then Weisser (her stepfather's name). Any way Hi Warren! Hi Willie! Hope you read this note. From sandra N.

Sandra,
Your relative invented my favorite character of all time. I remember standing in my play pen and watching Willie the Worm. The Inquirer once posted Warren's address and so my wife sent him a letter and he sent me an autographed photo of Willie!!!! It was Willie's celebrity photo as he was in a little tux and he was wearing rhine stone glasses! What a hoot! I still have it in a frame on my desk.
