Saturdays with Herb Sheldon is a 1956 American children's entertainment
show that was similar to other shows like Howdy Doody that had the sole
purpose of entertaining the baby boomer generation using live television
broadcasts. Hosted by Herb Sheldon, the show provides young viewers a
variety of songs, jokes, entertaining movies and cartoons. Sheldon uses
two toy puppet characters; Egbert, a bookworm and Ummley, a steam
shovel, along with an old piano, known as Ricky Ticky, to entertain the
children with songs, skits, jokes and games.
