The Merry Mailman's Funhouse is a live-action children show developed
and hosted by singer and theater actor Ray Heatherton. Seen on WOR-TV
from Monday to Saturday, the show was set on a country road and filmed
in front of a studio audience. With his fellow comedians, Chic Darrow
and Milt Moss, Heatherton taught kids to do magic tricks, puppet skits,
arts and crafts, and other hobbies. Songs, stories, and games for
children as well as animated segments were also staples of the show. The
series was telecast from 1961 to 1963.
