  • Art Linkletter's House Party was a popular daytime variety show that began on CBS radio on January 15, 1945 and then on television seven years later on September 1, 1952. The show featured a few jokes with Art, he would ask an audience member to answer a simple quiz, which would result in gifts. In 1964, added features included bloopers from CBS-TV Shows, Bonnie Prudden's exercise tips for women and talked to ex-movie stars. On January 15, 1965, Art Linkletter's House Party celebrated its 20th Anniversary on-the-air between radio and television and guest host Ralph Edwards from This is Your Life makes a tribute to him and the show. In 1966, the Show enters color after 14 seasons in black & white. On October 13, 1967, Art's radio show is gone and the TV show continues until CBS-TV cancel it on September 5, 1969 as "The Art Linkletter Show". Three months later on December 29, 1969, NBC-TV brought back The Linkletters as the new title "Life with Linkletter" (The New Art Linkletter Show)" and lasted for 1 season on September 25, 1970. In 1990, House Party with Steve Doocy lasted for 1 year in syndication and from 1998 to 2000, he returned with Bill Cosby for "Kids Say the Darndest Things".
