Send Your Pictures To Dear Ol' Captain Noah
We wanted to talk about some Philly television history so we put it out there to the audience and let our instagram followers decide between American BandStand and Captain Noah. And the Captain pulled out a resounding win with more than 60% of the vote. If you don’t know, Captain Noah and His Magical Ark was a children's television program broadcast in the Philadelphia area from 1967 to 1994. It was filmed and produced at the WPVI-TV, Channel 6 studios on City Line Avenue. Starring W. Carter Merbreier, a cast of puppets and rotating cartoons; Captain Noah kept kids busy everyday from 7 to 9am and a half hour on Saturday and Sunday.
