Let’s Pretend

LetsPretend-BackCover-300Let’s Pretend was originally called The Adventures of Helen and Mary. Nila Mack produced the show and thought that children should tell the story since the stories were for them to begin with. The show went on to win the Peabody award and was on the air from 1934 until 1954. The show would start with the audience of children being greeted by Uncle Bill Adams with “Hello, Pretenders!” The children would respond with a, “Hello, Uncle Bill!” Classic fairy tales and children’s stories were then acted out.
