Jim  Davis | 4 comments What is the name of the SF short story from the 1950's about a children's TV show host indoctrinating the children watching? I think it was a parody of "The Howdy Doody Show". The idea was that this host character could manipulate the minds of the children without adults knowing it. It would seem like something Philip K. Dick or Kurt Vonnegut would have written.
