If you are a baby boomer, or the parent of a baby boomer or two, you might remember a toy called Buzzy Bee. Buzzy Bee was one of the children's toys widely marketed in the U.S. during the 1950s. This was back in "BC" - before computers - so kids didn't have screen time on devices such as cell phones and video games to keep them occupied.
This was a time when watching a TV screen was generally a family affair. The choice of what to watch was limited, because there were only three TV networks in those days. Shows such "Ozzie & Harriet", "The Red Skelton Show," "Leave It to Beaver," "Dennis the Menace" and "Lassie" were standard fare. Roy Rogers, Davy Crockett and Sky King were western heroes who engaged in fierce six-shooter battles with bad guys. There were "Looney Tunes" cartoons and a kids' variety show - "The Mickey Mouse Club." What baby boomer can forget the Mickey Mouse ear hats, the Mouseketeer roll call and the names Annette, Bobby and Doreen?
