Hosted by the amiable Art Findley (who was later a talk radio host on KGO 810 AM), Mayor Art would introduce cartoons and perform short skits for the "City Council," about four dozen kids sitting in the bleachers to the right.
Befitting his important position, the Mayor was always dressed in a high hat and tails. All the members of the "City Council" would each get their own gray felt high hat with their first names hand markered onto the front, just above the black band.
Mayor Art also had a hand puppet sidekick, a bird named Ring-a-Ding who lived in a cuckoo clock, and had a tendency to bite the Mayor on his nose. Safety tips were also featured, and Mayor Art would advise against certain activities because they were "Danger-ROO-so!" Each episode would end with the Mayor promising the viewers: "We'll be seeing you" "SUBSEQENTLY!!!" the "City Council" would gleefully finish.
