HOWDY DOODY & BUFFALO BOB SIGNED 8 X 10 PHOTO showing the two in a close-up portrait.
Buffalo Bob Smith (1917-98) was the host of the pioneering American children's television program Howdy Doody (1947-60). It was one of the first series produced at NBC in Rockefeller Center. Initially the set was styled as a circus tent but was soon changed to a western town. Both Howdy, the freckle-faced boy marionette, and Buffalo Bob wore western style cowboy cloths. Howdy's name came from the then popular greeting "howdy doody"/"howdy do" a corruption of the phrase "how do you do?" used in the western United States. Smith owned the rights to Howdy Doody and continued making public appearances with his creation until his death in 1998. The photo has some scattered light silvering but is otherwise in fine condition.
