If You Grew Up In Utah In The 1970s You’ll Remember This Beloved TV Show
“Romper bomper stomper doo…Tell me tell me tell me do…Magic Mirror please tell me today…Did all my friends have fun at play?” If you grew up in the 1960s or 1970s in Utah, odds are that you know exactly where that quote comes from. Romper Room was a popular children’s television show that aired on KSL from 1953 to 1981, and preschoolers around the state gathered around the TV every afternoon to see if Miss Julie would call their names at the end of the show.
