The Return of Happy and Froggie


A crew from Remix Films were just here at Chez JSH, interviewing me for their documentary film When Happy Met Froggie. The movie's all about the great lost Lexington 1970s children's show Happy's Hour, starring Happy the Clown and his puppet friend Froggie. And of course, my painting of them makes a prominent appearance. (Guess what, sniffers, the price just went up!)

Do you have any memorabilia pertaining to Happy's Hour, or any special memories or experience with the show, that may be of use for the documentary? It may not be too late - contact the producers and let them know!

Wow, i remember Happy the Clown's show. My dad would take me to Sir Pizza in Imperial Shopping Center on Waller ave. They had a back room with a big screen tv and we would get pizza and watch it. As a side note, that Sir Pizza no longer exist in that spot. It has moved to S.Broadway in the old Popeye's Fried Chicken building. Does anyone have any images of that old Tv Room at Sir Pizza? I would love to see them. Thanks.

Thanks to that show I grew to love the Little Rascals, Our Gang, Three Stooges and Tom and Jerry! I loved that show. As a mom I introduced the same shows to my kids on DVD. Great stuff and cannot wait to hear about the documentary.
