Here's another installment of a syndicated series of shorts called Chatter's World that aired on WBKB Channel 7 weekday mornings in 1960.

Chicago historian Steve Jajkowski adds, "Chatter's World was local - it was created and produced by Sam Ventura and Ronny Born (who played "Orville" on Shock Theatre). Ronny Born also performed the voice of Chatter. Filmed at WBKB, roughly a season's worth, then sold into local syndication for quite a few years after. It initially ran as a stand alone show first (on WBKB). Later I remember seeing it as part of other shows."

Chatter's World also aired in other major markets, including WNEW Channel 5 in New York where these shorts aired as part of the long-running children's show Wonderama within Sonny Fox's 1959-67 run as host).

In this particular short, Chatter the Chimp plays the host of an "American Bandstand" type program as a type of simian Dick Clark of sorts.

Starts with a portion of the Academy leader countdown - "SMPTE Society Leader 1958"
