Kid-show host John Conrad was caretaker to the mischievous Elmer (an elaborately designed puppet) in ELMER THE ELEPHANT, which aired on Chicago TV from 1953 to 1964. In this installment from the early 1960s, Elmer "helps" John post a couple of circus signs. (This clip appears courtesy of the late John Conrad.)
