(Above):  I was a big fan of  "The  Soupy Sales Show" as seen on WTVP in the early Metromedia days of the Decatur ABC affiliate.  See the History of WAND.  It's hard to describe "The Soupy Sales Show" as a kids show....it was as I loved it as a 7 to 11 year old, but it also had appeal to the adults males as well.  Even the Rat Pack did a guest appearance on the show and was involved in a pie fight.  This clip is with "Pookie" the puppet Lion. 

              
          
                  
 

(Above):  "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" was one of the TV's longest running live action sit coms having transitioned from radio in the late 40s to early 50s.  It was a staple on ABC during most of its run.   Looking quite corny by todays standards, and even then it was rather corny, the series was very easy to watch....and enjoy.   So, enjoy this episode complete with original commercials.
