Aimed at preschool children, this show featured some of the most zaniest characters gathered around. All the creation of Terry Bennett, the host of the show. Imagine a home where everything is turn upside down. The doors, the tables, the window, everything. A living puppet named Pamela, played by Terry's real wife, Joy Bennett, could always be found at Jobblewocky Place. Along with a assortment of hand puppets and dummies created by Frank Marshall, the famous maker of wooden figures. Red Flannels, (Terry's 1st ventriloquist dummy), Timothy Timber (a sailor), Three Smart Men (3 heads on a shelf), Uncle Louie (a talking picture on the wall), Bertran Turtle, Mr. Shoe, a talking shoe (shoes have tongues so they should talk), Mr. Head (a box with a voice), Mr Engineer, Rusty Hinges (Red's nemesis), and a few others, were always present at Jobblewocky Place and all voiced by Terry Bennett himself. During the shows run Terry often wore a plain white or black shirt with a huge letter "J" on the front of it. Even though the skits were zany, they always taught good morals and good clean fun. Though some of the bits may have been over preschoolers young minds, they were always funny. As most of the time you would hear the camera crew and backstage laughing at the skits. Jobblewocky went off the air in 1961 despite excellent ratings. Terry Bennett went on to do the television show The Wacky World of Mr. B). Written by Kenneth Kwilinski See less
