    Children’s Tv in Chicagoland during the sixties featured Bozo’s Circus, Ray Rainer and Friends, Garfield Goose, but Bill Jackson’s Cartoon Town was the best.

    @MELISSA84008 Booby the Beaver was a character on “Magic Door,” which was a Sunday morning show on WBBM-TV in Chicago.

    @NoirFan01 lol..never even heard of that one..? How bought ‘HR Puff n Stuff” ,’Banana Splits’or the New Zoo Review”…another lifetime ago :)

  5. NoirFan01 says:

    @MELISSA84008 Magic Door was an interesting show. Wasn’t there “Booby the Beaver”? Booby being a Yiddish word for “friend.”

    I saw him live too. Back in the 70′s at North School. We all decorated our cars and had a blast. This was in the Chicago suburbs. Mrs. Jameson was there and MR. Bennett.

  14. goldeylockss says:

    I used to pretend I was sick as a child so I could stay home and watch this show!!! ha ha

    Cartoon Town ruled! Cable killed creativity.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Bill Jackson! Wow! I simply adore the show our three kids grew up on. It was popular even with adults, such as myself. Here in Western Canada, it used to air on the YTV network during the mid-80′s. I only wish we could see the whole series again. God bless you and you crew, Bill.

    Grew up watching Cartoon Town with the wonderful Bill Jackson. He really entertained and inspired me with his artwork especially! I saw him live when he came to my own town back in the early 70′s in the Chicago suburbs. It was such a thrill to see him then and I am thrilled to see him here on youtube now! Thank you Mr. Jackson for all the joy you brought to me and my siblings during our childhoods.
