"Pluck your magic twanger, froggy!"


August 20, 1955 to December 31, 1960

A nd thus, from those famous words, would Froggy the Gremlin appear! Andy Devine starred in Buster Brown's Andy's Gang after original show host Ed McConnell died from a heart attack. Each week Andy would seat himself in the oversized chair and start reading from his oversized "Story Book", which in turn, would fade into this week's Jungle adventure film. The highlight each week was, of course, Froggy's appearance, who always humiliated poor easy-going Andy. Interestingly enough, Rempel's toy figure (above) is far more life like and detailed than the actual puppet used in the show (see tv clip below). Also making their appearance were Midnight the Cat & Squeeky the Mouse (hamster) - a rather bizarre live action act with Midnight & Squeeky playing instruments while Midnight danced in a circle!
