I was about five when this show aired. The idea was radical: For example: Wiinky Dink would be chased by the robbers. He is trapped at the edge of a canyon! The kid viewer would put a sheet of plastic on the tube and draw a bridge! Winky Dink and friends would cross over, and would tell you to erase the bridge to keep the bad guys away!!
Only my mom would not buy the little kit of markers and plastic for me -- and I caught hell for drawing right on the TV screen.
My mom would not let me watch it again. Ever. I think this must have happened in lots of households.
Ah Winky Dink, you made such an impression on me and I only got to watch you once.moreless
