More Details
The longest running kids show in the nation (35 years) was produced in Phoenix and ran statewide from the very early1950s to the mid 1980s. It was produced by Bill Thompson, who played Wallace. It also starred Ladmo, the happy man/child, along with Pat McMahon. Pat played a number of silly characters on the show, including Gerald-the-brat and Auntie Maude, who were two of his most popular. One of his characters, Hub Kapp, along with the Wheels, became a famous rock parody group in the 1960s. They appeared nationally on the Steve Allen Show and became quite a local sensation. The music genius behind the show was Mike Condello. He not only played one of the "Wheels" backing up Hub Kapp, but he wrote and produced most of the music on the show including the wonderful theme song, "Ho Ho, Ha Ha, Hee Hee, Ha Ha". Mike formed a group for the show called "Commodore Condello's Salt River Navy Band", which was a hilarious take off of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band LP. The irreverent humor was really aimed at a more mature audience than just the kids, so it became popular with everyone: Teens, adults as well the kids. Those of us fortunate enough to grow up with these characters, will always have fond memories of Wal-Boy, Ladmo, Gerald and all the other wacky characters we came to know and love.
