Romper Room Around the USA
Romper Room was an educational preschooler broadcast from 1954 until well into the 1980s in almost every TV market in the United States.
The program was sold to stations in two ways. A standard syndication version they could air 'as is' - or as a franchise with everything done locally, the most popular option. The series was developed by Bert and Nancy Claster who trained many of the local hostesses / teachers.
Below you'll find links to our exhaustive look at one of the country's most beloved children's shows including dozens of rare pictures and video you won't find anywhere else along with comments from some of the original Romper Room teachers!
