"[on Howdy Doody (1954)] We do constructive things. We talk about safety and good manners and encourage the kids to go to their place of worship on Sunday. And the show is an emotional outlet for children. They like to see Clarabell chase me with a seltzer bottle because it's something they'd like to do. (IMDB)"
