Theme Song Lyrics:

Buffalo Bob: Say kids, what time is it?
Kids: It's Howdy Doody Time!

It's Howdy Doody Time.
It's Howdy Doody Time.
Bob Smith and Howdy Do
Say Howdy Do to you.
Let's give a rousing cheer,
Cause Howdy Doody's here,
It's time to start the show,
So kids let's go!

Although "just" a children's show, Howdy Doody set a number of important milestones:
It was the first TV show to complete 1000 broadcasts.
It was among the first color programs (it was the first regular color program).
It was the first to achieve split-screen, cross-country broadcasts on a regular basis; a technology later used during the Kennedy/Nixon presidential debates.
