Chatter's World - "Chatter's Bandstand" (1960)
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.
