This was the first truly interactive TV show. Winky Dink and You was a cartoon show where the kids helped Winky out of desperate situations. Winky Dink was an animated star. I'm not sure why the character was a star. You had to purchase a clear plastic sheet that went over the TV screen and erasable crayons. If Winky got trapped at the edge of cliff, Winky asked the kids to draw a bridge for him. Once he crossed he asked the kids to erase the bridge so the bad guys couldn't get accross the bridge. I have fond memories of this show in the mid - late 50s and will be released on DVD on 9/24/02.
