Mr. Bill came to life in 1974 when Walter Williams created a short film starring a Play-Doh doll named Mr. Bill. His homemade movie, a parody of bad animation, won a contest held by “Saturday Night Live” in its first season. Mr. Bill became so popular that he spent seven years on Saturday Night Live, and his appearances grew to 10 spots a season.
Oh No, Mr Bill!

Jacks were my favorite recess game as a child, only we usually played with a golf ball! How in the world did we fit all ten jacks and a big golf ball into our tiny hands? Babies, eggs in the basket, strike the match, pigs in the pen, halfsies, pigs over the fence, around the world, halfway around the world, ups, downs, crack the egg: we mastered them all. Sigh.

I can't "see" this without also hearing the song and ticking in my head--- anyone else? I believe the music was the song "The Grandfather Clock" that was also sung by Grampa Jones from HeeHaw (which opens a WHOLE nother can of worms for some of us!) If you're following me down this memory lane, leave a comment--I'd love to hear what you're thinking, too! :)
