When I was a kid we had four channels on the television. We had the three networks and public television.  Most kids today have no idea what that is like, nor what it is like to get up and have to change the channel by hand.

Even though there were only four channels I still managed to spend most of my free time watching tv. I didn’t care what was on as long as there was something on.

We were rarely allowed to watch tv before school but occasionally but for some reason I have a very vivid memory of watching this while eating breakfast. We must have had a snow day or something.

Casey Jones was a local kids show. It played for years. It wasn’t considered educational, just entertaining.

Notice the Scandahovian accent. This is the same accent used in the movie Fargo. We pretty much talk like this.
