|Shari Lewis made her debut in NYC kids tv with this Sunday afternoon children's wraparound program beginning on Sunday July 5, 1953. She would engage her studio audiences and her viewers in games, songs, stories, craftmaking, hobbies, informational segments, interviews with guest performers, personalities and members of the studio audience and perform puppet and comedy skits inbetween the reruns of old movie cartoons. It's interesting to note that on this series Ms. Lewis worked with two wooden knee figures, not hand puppets. Her two figures were "Samson", a crooked talent manager and "Taffy Twinkle", a giddy farm girl.
"Facts N' Fun!" remained on the air on WNBT TV Ch.4 in the NYC viewing area until the series was cancelled on Sunday September 26, 1953.
