THE ADVENTURES OF POW WOW,
The Indian Boy
"Pow Wow, the Indian boy, loved all the
animals and the woods;
Pow Wow, the Indian boy, loved all the animals and the woods;
Pow Wow was a friend of all the animals in the woods,
If there was any trouble he would help them if he could;
If Pow Wow couldn't help them he would go to the Medicine Man,
And he would tell them stories just how it all began, all began, all began."

Based on Indian folklore, The Adventures of Pow Wow first appeared from January 30, 1949 through March 13, 1949 as a very limited-animation local 15 minute Sunday morning program on New York's WNBT-TV. It reappeared in 1956 as a series of 52 five minute black and white films on CBS-TV's Captain Kangaroo show. Pow Wow was syndicated by Screen Gems to the eleven western U.S. states which did not air Captain Kangaroo at the time.
The series left Captain Kangaroo's show in early 1958 and was syndicated beginning in May, 1958 as filler for local kid shows. In New York the later shorts were aired Saturday mornings on WRCA-TV (later WNBC-TV) as part of Ray Forrest's Children's Theater (which also aired the original Jay Ward-Alex Anderson Crusader Rabbit cartoons). In Chicago they appeared on WGN-TV's Garfield Goose and Friends. Tele-Features, the company which distributed Sam Singer's Courageous Cat™ and Minute Mouse cartoons, took over syndication of The Adventures of Pow Wow in 1960. Sam Singer passed away on January 25, 2001, at the age of 88.
