This patent is the Howdy Doody Design patent known from 'The Howdy Doody Show'.  It was one of the first and easily the most popular children's television show in the 1950's and a reflection of the wonder, technical fascination, and business realities associated with early television.  While Howdy and his friends entertained American children, they also sold television sets to American parents and demonstrated the potential of the new medium to advertisers.

The most famous moment in the history of 'The Howdy Doody Show' came during the closing seconds of the final show when Clarabell, who did not speak but communicated through pantomime and honking his horns, surprised the audience by saying, "Good-bye, kids."
