:: Romper Room with Miss Jan in Pittsburgh ::
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.
This was a postcard sent out to the kids on the show:
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.
I 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.
Chances are you were on the show more than once - usually kids on the program appeared for the entire week, 5 broadcasts
