Tribute to Linn Sheldon/Barnaby
Cleveland TV Guide Ad from August 24, 1957 announcing the debut of "Popeye" Cartoons on KYW-TV 3 Cleveland September 2, 1957. There had been no host announced for this show..Linn Sheldon may have still been at WJW at this time. He was definitely hosting the Popeye Cartoons as "Barnaby" before the end of 1957. TV 3 had the right to all the incarnations of theatrical and TV Popeyes till well into the 1970's..
I'd like to share a very nice YouTube tribute to Barnaby (Linn Sheldon)..done by boppcleve, using some nice stills and film clips of Sheldon, along with "Barnaby's Theme"..Thanks to bobpcleve for uploading this originally. Very well done..
