 You see those things sticking out of that top? No, those aren't granny's knitting needles. We called those antennae "rabbit ears" and you had to move them around to make the picture come in more clearly. Sometimes we'd attach a wire coat hanger to one of the "rabbit ears" and hang it from a metal curtain rod. Do you think that's odd? Quite often we only got one station!

Many television shows from south of the border became hits in Canada when Canadian Seniors were children.
