The endorsements

Selling products was part and parcel of the Wunda Wunda life, as shown by these endorsement materials. (See more such endorsements on the “news clippings” page.) A national requirement that children’s TV hosts cease such endorsements led to the cancellation of Ruth Prins‘ show in 1972.
