Memory Lane: Froggy the Gremlin

“Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy!” Did any of us ever know what that was supposed to mean?

This is extremely rare color footage of the great Andy Devine hosting the vintage 1950s kid TV show, Andy’s Gang–co-starring his wicked little sidekick, Froggy the Gremlin.

I was crazy about Froggy when I was seven or eight years old. I even had a squeezable replica of Froggy, although it didn’t talk. Which was just as well, because when Froggy talked, other people got in trouble. A great little mischief-maker was our Froggy!

Oh, how I wish–oh, how I wish that Froggy would moderate presidential debates! Now that would really be worth watching.
