Title: Albert the Alley Cat!
Post by: SRW1000 on Wednesday Jul 26, 2017, 08:55:33 pm
Those of us growing up in the Milwaukee area during the 60s and 70s probably have fond members of Albert the Ally Cat from WITI.

This week, Fox 6 anchor Brad Hicks went in search of the famous personality.  Here's a link to the story, but do yourself a favor and watch the video first.  It's rather amusing, and a fresh blast of nostalgia from an earlier, and more whimsical era:

Now, here's hoping that Brad can do a follow-up story featuring Jack DuBlon's other alter ego, Dr. Cadaverino.
