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.
