Frogs

Froggie the Gremlin - Wide-eyed puppet frog on the children's program called SMILIN' ED'S GANG/NBC/CBS/ABC/1951-55.

Froggie the Gremlin - SMILIN' ED'S GANG

Froggie (voice of Ed McConnell, Arch Presby & Frank Ferrin) was a mischievous, wise-cracking little frog puppet who dressed in a tuxedo jacket and bow-tie. He delighted and perplexed the show's host Ed McConnell and later Andy Devine on ANDY'S GANG/NBC/1955.

Each week, Froggie appeared in a puff of smoke saying "Hi ya kids, hi ya, hi ya, hi ya!" after Smilin' Ed said "Now Froggie, you better become visible. Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie."

On the later spin-off series, host Andy Devine summoned Froggie by saying "North or south, east or west, wherever you are, Froggie the Gremlin, we want you to become visible. Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie!"
