If you grew up in Oklahoma in the Sixties, you HAD to watch the Foreman Scotty Show every day after school. It was the law.
The half-hour show featured Foreman Scotty, Xavier T. Willard, Cannonball and a whole mess of screaming kids.

If you were really, really lucky, and it was your birthday, you got to be on the show AND ride Woody.
I was exactly that lucky on my fifth birthday ─ March 15, 1961 (100% authentic invitation above).
It was the greatest day of my life, then the worst, then the greatest again, all because of Foreman Scotty himself…
