Many of us slighly ‘older’ folks may remember rushing home in the afternoons from school to tune to WTVQ (actually channel 62 back in those days) for a show called “Happy’s Hour” or “Happy & Froggie.” A bizarre, but entertaining cast did skits, read viewer letters, and hosted afternoon shows like The Three Stooges & Flash Gordon episodes.
The program aired in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
Happy the Hobo was played by Tim Eppenstein, who passed away late last night. He is indeed a Lexington television icon. Thank you Happy for the great memories of our youth & Godspeed.
