Boys Costumes Depicted in Television Shows: Alphabetical "K" Listings

Figure 1.--s.

HBC will list TV series alphabetically here to make them easier to find. TV shows, except for American TV shows, are generally not well know in countries other than in the countries in which they were made. They are also much more current than movies. Almost all TV shows date from the 1950s at the earliest. Costume dramas have the same problems as in the movies, but a great deal of useful information is avialible from TV shows set in contemporary periods. As non-American TV shows are not as widely distributed as movies, often little information is available on these shows outside each country. Movies are often widely distributed in foreign countries. TV shows, with the exceptiion of American programs, are generally not. As an American, we have, for example, never seen German, French, and Italian TV shows. Thus the TV pages provide a much-needed source of information on foreign programing.

Kate and Allie - (US)

Rather insightful sitcom. Chip ( ) is surrounded by females, two teenagers and two divorced women. The boy plays the role nicely, often exhibiting obvious boyish disdain toward the girls. The girls plan a party for New Year. Chip begs to come, but of course the girls don't want a little boy around. The girls relent, but only if he wears a diaper and comes down the stairs as baby New Year. He is aghast! "No way!" he screams, horrified. "We can also get a sash for you," offers one of the girls. "No way! No way!" he yells again and heads up stairs. The two girls pursue him upstairs and add, "You can come down stairs at midnight." "No way! No way!" you here Chip again. Later on in another scene, Chip begs to come again. His sister tells him again, "Chip, I've already told you that if you want to come to the party, you have to come as baby New Year and wear a diaper." Chip turns to his mother with a pitiful look on his face and pleads, "Mom can they really make me wear a diaper?"

Kidsscene - (US, 1987?)

A high energy mix of programming for young people.

Kidsworld - (US, 1970s, 1988)

Kids aged 7 through 15 are featured reporting on trends and topics that are fun and interesting to their peers. The ideas are generated by the kids themselves. It is a kind of a kids "60 Minutes." All sorts of interesting segments, including one on a ballet dancer, swim club, and the Philadelphia Boy's choir. Originally produced in the 1970s and now being updated.

(The) King Family Show (America, Mid-1960s)

In the mid 60's, there was a show called The King Family that appeared in several TV specials over the course of several years. Unfortunately. The show was about a large family that had many entertainment members in it. The dominant family name was "King"
