Romper Room - Pittsburg

:: Romper Room with Miss Jan in Pittsburgh ::

Romper Room 1969

I just discovered this site about children who were on Romper Room at WTAE channel 4 in Pittsburgh and seeking photos and stories about the show. My name is Robert Harvey, though when I was on Romper Room my name was Robert Nuckels. I was on the show with "Miss Jan" sometime around December 1969 and I have fond memories of the show, though they are a little vague since I was only 5-6 at the time.

I have about 20-25 photographs from when I was on the show. I'm the kid in the yellow shirt.

Some photos are with me sitting at the table with the other children, others playing with Romper Stompers, etc. After the show I was given a "Graduation certificate" and I still have a hand-written letter from "Miss Jan" about a gift I gave her sometime around Valentine's Day 1970. - Rev. Robert Harvey

The Pledge of Allegiance was an important part of every show as was prayer before milk and cookies. Teaching core values was the key to the success of Romper Room.


These photos are from in April of 1970, on WTAE-TV, channel 4. Miss Jan (Bohna) passed away in 2005. I am the shy one with my head down. Still like that today.

Miss Jan - Romper Room photoI was on Romper Room with Ms. Jan sometime in the last 60's or early 70's. I don't remember being on the show, but I still remember Ms. Jan. She was just beautiful and so sweet and I absolutely loved her.

The photos aren't dated, but I was about 5 years old, so that would be sometime in '69 or '70. I've been told, over and over, that I was "So Funny" when I was on the show and I made Ms. Jan laugh and laugh. I'm the little girl on the far left in the first picture.

That's me in the second picture kneeling in front of Ms. Jan. I get the feeling, she kept me where she could keep an eye on me. In the third photo, I'm on the far left. My mom told me I was on the show several times, and based on the different clothes, I guess that was the case.

Just by chance, I found a mention of Ms. Jan in a society page article a few years ago. I emailed the author and she passed on a Hello and Thanks to Ms. Jan. A few days later, I received a sweet thank you. Ms. Jan was a just sweet lady.

- Take care, Janine

Chances are you were on the show more than once - usually kids on the program appeared for the entire week, 5 broadcasts
