It's A

Red Light... Green Light...


(Engineer Bill Collectibles!)


Back on April 27th 2008 I blogged about 'Engineer Bill' and what fun I had watching his show.

Early this morning I received an email from a reader of that archived blog post, who has one of the rare 'Red Light - Green Light Glasses' on auction right now till July 3rd 2008!

Andy aka eBayer android007 has listed a glass on item listing number 230265881971 that is scheduled to end July 3rd 2008 18:42:33 PDT unless he takes a BIN offer before that!

Below is a repost of the blog that Andy found us at:

"One of the earliest things I can remember from my childhood was when my dad, who was in the Navy, was stationed in Long Beach.

It was during that time that Engineer Bill (Stulla) hosted a kid's TV show on KHJ Channel 9 in Los Angeles.

He was a favorite TV show host during the 1950's and 1960's.

His show was broadcast on every week day about when school had been out for a while, with enough time to get home to watch his show.

What really stuck out in my memory was his 'Red Light - Green Light' portion of the show, where my brother and I would drink, stop, drink, and so on when he would say 'green light' for us kids to drink the milk out of the glass, and 'red light' to stop drinking!

Some of the things that stick in your mind don't always make sense years later, but it was here that I found that drinking and eating what's good for you was fun!

By the way, other local televised kid's shows of Los Angeles during that time were Sheriff John, Chucko the Clown, and Bozo the Clown.

I don't remember many 'National' shows that I watched during that time but one for sure was Captain Kangaroo seen in black and white format.  

I was recently emailed asking if we had any more Engineer Bill collectibles for sale, from a reader who saw my previous blog post on Engineer Bill. We don't, and I noticed there is a dearth of them on eBay! So anyone out there with some to possible list, let us know and we'll blog about for you!"

The above offer still stands, and we'll do the same for you that we are doing here today for Andy and his listing 230265881971 that is scheduled to end July 3rd 2008 18:42:33 PDT!
