Don't believe me you say? All will be revealed on the next post. In the meantime a clip from this show which aired on Saturdays on ABC: accompanyng comments from the youtube source
Yes, "SHENANIGANS", which was a slight variation of Heatter-Quigley's previous "giant board game", "VIDEO VILLAGE" [CBS, 1960-'62], repackaged for sponsor Milton Bradley, was on Saturday mornings at 10am(et) from September 1964 through December 1965 on ABC. Very few examples of the series exsist...If I remember correctly, this program aired on Saturday mornings just before the Beatles Cartoon show in 1965. At least here in Los Angeles it did. In light of this, the tie-in with the harmonica is not surprising.
