The show was sponsored by CocoaMarsh, a chocolate syrup for milk. Wilbur the Pidgeon was one of Pat Meikle's cartoon characters. Her husband, Hal Cooper wrote the show along with Pat and late went on to direct "Maude" and many other television series. I don't know when, but I have read that Pat died.
Anyone over 60 that lived in NY when television was new to the public may remember this children's show.
I'm incredibly happy to have found this information as no-one I've questioned over the years has an inkling of what I'm speaking about. The candy cane pathway to an English cottage. The pendulum clock with a human face and the gloved "hands" ...one finger over the mouth suggesting we be quiet was the lead-in for a commercial. There was an easel with large pad that Miss Pat wrote lessons on....... then afterwards large cookies were handed out to the children in the small classroom. I sat on the floor, a four-year-old with eagerness to take it all in, while eating a box of Animal Crackers. Yes, I do remember.....with the fondest of memories. Please post ANY pictures of this show that are available. It definitely has a place in my heart.moreless
