I remember "Time for Beany," although they often ran it opposite
Howdy Doody, so I didn't always watch it.
I remember Superman on Friday evenings.
And I remember Space Patrol on Saturday mornings.
But channel 4 had more of a local personality, and they also had a
stronger signal in a lot of places.
They also carried Mickey Mouse Club. And Disneyland on Saturdays at
6 PM. I think they carried Zorro until Channel 5 came on. For some
reason, probably contractual, they continued to carry Mickey Mouse,
even after Channel 5 came on, until the following fall.
