Kartoon Klub was a local live TV show that was on everyday. The host was Ted Steele who at one time was a very famous band leader. For the hour preceding the Kartoon Klub, Ted hosted a live American Bandstand type show and when it was over it went right into him hosting Kartoon Klub, a kids show. Now poor Ted must have done something very wrong in the universe because he was stuck with a bunch of teenagers for an hour and then he was thrust into a world of screaming kids for an additional hour. I was so little but I remember how cranky he was. The only time he smiled was when the camera was on him.
Not sure if poor Ted was ever the same after that. My potty talk may have been the straw that broke Ted Steel's back because not long after that the show went off the air.
