Who remembers the Abominable Snowman PSA puppet spots during the 1970's?

I remember seeing 'em during Saturday morning cartoons up until the 1980's.

Thanks to YouTube, I found two of these fun old spots that were posted by love2register, who also has some cool 70's Sesame Street clips.

The Abominable Snowman and Magnolia the Ostrich puppets were the creations of the puppeteer husband and wife team Paul and Mary Ritts. They originally created the CBS kids show In the Park back in the early 1950's and would later host and perform on The Pink Panther Show in the early 1970's.

The Abominable Snowman made his first appearance on the 1970's NBC special, Howdy Doody & Friends.

There's a nice article over at TVParty! about the Ritts that was posted after Mary Ritts had passed away last May.

BBBOnLine is the Better Business Bureau program to identify trustworthy web sites in the US and CA. people are extremely dissatisfied with the company. There are so many negative reports abot the company. I learned about this on this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. There are also many consumer feedbacks about the company there. And they are far from being positive.
