      And who can forget Kitirik?  When KTRK-TV channel 13 was just starting out in Houston, Texas, and needing a mascot, they came up with a black cat since they were the unlucky 13. Bunny Orsak answered an ad for the fledgling station in 1954.  A contest won by a viewer gave her the name by putting  "i's" between the station's call letters, KTRK. I got to be on her show on my 5th birthday!!!!!!! dlk

    In the '50s and early '60s, I watched the "Kitirik" show in Houston every morning.

    an icon from my childhood. Kitirik hosted a local tv show and you could get a spot in the audience on your birthday and be interviewed by her. The day I was on, my dad lugged our HUGE t.v. with him to work so he wouldn't miss it!

    FELINE FAVORITE - Houston's KTRK-TV, Channel 13, went on the air for the first time on November 20, 1954. Before that first telecast, 23 year-old Bunny Orsak answered an ad looking for some to play the station's new mascot, a black cat. Orsak got the job and, a local Houston viewer won a contest to name the new mascot by inserting an "I" between the station's call letters. --Thanks to Earl Blair
