Clevelanders...did you get one of these? Do you remember Mr. Jingeling's theme song: Mr. Jingeling, how you ting-a-ling, Keeper of the Keys! On Halle’s seventh floor, we’ll be looking for You to turn the Keys! Keeping track of Santa’s pack And Treasure House of toys, Wind-up things that Santa brings To all the good little girls and boys Mr. Jingeling, how you ting-a-ling, Keeper of the Keys! On Halle’s Seventh floor we’ll be looking for You to turn the Keys!
Mr. Jingeling, the "Keeper of the Keys", has long been a mainstay of the holidays in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Jingeling first appeared on the Cleveland airwaves of WEWS TV in 1956 as a spokesman for the Halle Brothers department store. The original idea behind Mr. Jingeling was to promote the toys that Halle's was featuring at their store.
