My cousin was on a Romper Room-type show in the early 1960s. Every boy was given a toy gun and a toy mortar launcher as a gift. Nobody thought anything of it. (Amazingly there were no drive-by shootings or school shootings in the 1960s.)

On Romper Room? I would have just been happy to hear my name when she looked through her magic mirror!

My aunt verified my story: My cousin was on the Canadian version of Romper Room in the early 1960s. He was given a gun, a mortar launcher, and a camouflage helmet as a prize. My cousin loved it!

Did dad say that Billy couldn't read yet?!! Dang, you should lay off the with the firepower for a while and crack open a book or two.. Dick Tracy hates illiterate people more than criminals, just so you know.
