The sad part is I remember this show as a kid.

Not as much of a wasteland then as now. I recognized these two in a millisecond. Note Clarabell's hand on the seltzer bottle.

As a five year-old, I was quite pissed off when "The Howdy Doody Show" was preempted for the political party conventions in 1952.

"Goodbye, kids."

Date is important on this one. Keeshan only played Clarabell between 1947 and at the latest 1954 (the dates for the second Clarabell, Nick Nicholson are unclear). After 1954 Clarabell was played by Lew Anderson, who was the one who actually said "Goodbye kids" in 1960.
