  • Miss "I Forget Her Name" played with children like on Barney. Show segments included, Do Bee/Don't Bee, Colorforms weather report, hopping around in a circle on horsies, and lastly the magic mirror, to view the audience!

    I remember watching Romper Room in the late fifties. There was a segment in the show where Miss (I Forget Her Name) and all the kids hopped around in a circle riding, those toy horses with the head and a pole attached.

    I think there was another segment where Miss IFHN did an imaginary weather report using a Colorforms board and stickers. The kids were asked for suggestions on how to dress the Colorforms child. Of course if it was raining, the child wore a slicker, sou’ wester, and rubber galoshes; there was a cloud and individual rain drops in the sky.

    There was Do Bee and Don’t Bee segment demonstrating behavior and social situations and lessons…a kind of Goofus and Gallant (from Highlights).

    At the end of the show, Miss IFHN would look into her magic mirror and name the children she saw. At first I really thought she could see me… but then I used to think Midnight the Cat on Andy’s Gang was real. As some primitive swirl effects made the magic mirror ethereal, Miss IFHN used to say the mantra: Romper stomper domper do. Tell me Tell me…(etc.) I see Jimmy, I see Sarah, Jill, Bobby…

    I met Miss IFHN at Newberry’s five and ten on B’way in Long Branch, New Jersey around 1959. We went in the back entrance and waited in line with all the other fans to see her. She sat on a chair in the back of the store near the parakeets and turtles.

    This is one of the best shows for the age groups that it was aired for in it's time! Wished they bring it back! They just dont make TV like that anymore! We wonder why kids are the way they are...bring back good TV and cartoons and make them play outside! Things are going down hill with music and TV now a days. I am afraid to see what's in store! Anyways I think I am done with my complaining for now..WOW trying to get 100 words in is hard sometimes! Have a Good day!! Ok I am done Cya.
  • I remember growing up watching the show everyday on channel 9 in new york, I even had those yellow things with the green straps for walking.

    This show instilled values in us when we were growing up about honesty, taking turns, fairness, and truth, where else could a show like this other than Mister Rogers Neighborhood teach this kind of structure. They need to bring back this program and play the 80's shows because todays kids can relate more to topics of this era than if they went back farther. Plus Parents who used to watch the show when they were kids can laugh and remember the good times they had and share those memories with the children and teach them the same values they learnedwhen they were growing up.

    Children's program that was often franchised rather than syndicated (meaning, local television stations could use their own hostesses in lieu of national hosts if they chose). A typical program featured a group of six to 10 children, ages 4-6, in a variety of games, songs and rhymes and simple moral lessons as guided by the hostess and recurring characters. One of those recurring characters was Mr. Do Bee, an oversized bumblebee who helped teach the moral lessons ("Do Bee a good sport when you lose"). The end always featured the hostess using her "Magic Mirror" to help her greet the show's young audience ("I see Brian and Mindy; oh, there's Jill and Donald," etc.)
  • Watched this as a kid! I'm only 26, but i remember it!

    I used to watch this show!! i remember ALWAYS waiting for her to say my name when she looked into her 'magic mirror'. It seemed like she never 'saw' me. lol. i can't remember a lot about it, although i do remember my mom making me a pair of 'tin can steppers' that they used on there out of tuna fish cans and string. boy, things were a lot simpler back then. If i were to give my kids tin cans with string for them to stand on they would look at me like i am on crack!!!
  • Much better than some of the stuff we are subjected to these days.

    I used to watch this back in the early 70's. I don't remember the hostesses name but, she was so kind. All the children would sit around a T-shaped table and do crafts. There was lots of singing and Mr. Do Bee would come buzzing in to give a quick morals lesson. I loved it when the kids would get the boxes out and would pretend that they were riding around in fire trucks and police cars. I evenlearned to walk on the plastic cup stilts from watching this show. What I remember most, though, was when the hostess would get out her magic mirror and look at the kids sitting in the audience saying, "I see Mary, and Johnny, and Billy, etc."
  • all i remember is that the host was Miss Sharon and there was something about a Magic Mirror. i must have been five when this was on about 20 years ago. but i watched it regularly before going to school, so i must have liked it.

  • A show I loved as a young kid, but my memory is foggy on the details of this show.

    So can someone who was a little older or brighter than me please right a synopsis of this show? I can oly remember snippets of a teacher like lady in a class room type setting, teaching and playing with kids.

    There is also an Urban Legend that the female host of this show committed suicide. I hope this is not true.
