A Day at the Zoo

Falling Hare

Captain Ernie was greatly in demand and made the most of every opportunity to see his young fans. In July of 1965 he made a series of appearances at the historic Fort Theater (now Circa 21 in downtown Rock Island, Illinois). One of the advertisements made the call - "LETS GO KIDS!" The announcement was unnecessary, however, since Ernie had already sent shockwaves through his army of viewers by announcing it on his show! Fun for all was to be had as Ernie worked his talents along with wonderful prizes, cartoons and a Jerry Lewis movie. Also on hand were different characters appearing with Captain Ernie. On Wednesday July 21st, Yogi Bear appeared with Ernie. On July 28th it was Bullwinkle. All of this occurred during summer vacation at 9:30 on a Wednesday morning for the incredible price of 35! Here is a copy of one of the advertisements which were run by the Fort Theater.
