Air-O-Doodle - A fantastic craft
composed of a steam locomotive at one end, a ship on the other end
and a pair of wings and a helicopter propeller sprouting from its
midsection. The all-purpose vehicle could travel on ground, on
railroad tracks, in water and in the air. An RCA VICTOR record
(Little Nipper Series Y397) told the story of Howdy Doody and the
Air-O-Doodle which was a featured gadget on the popular children's
program HOWDY DOODY/NBC/1947-60.
TRIVIA NOTE: The
Chicago edition of the TV Forecast magazine (May27- June2,
1950) has an article about Howdy's Air-O-Doodle.
