You have to be a certain age to remember these early television programs that began with the post-WWII baby-boom and defined the ideal in the 1950s. They were unabashedly decent. Decency and godly morality were values that television actively promoted!
“The Ruggles” ran from 1949-1952. It starred veteran charmer, Charlie Ruggles, as the father of four. As preschoolers, my sister and I were intent on the highjinks of the twins, Donald and Donna, played by Judy Nugent and Jimmy Hawkins. My younger sister developed a huge crush on Jimmy Hawkins when he later played Tag Oakley on the Annie Oakley Show. So, this post is dedicated to my sister, affectionately known as Little Linilulu.
