Who can speak of a finer recollection than racing home after school, changing into cowboy clothes, and tuning into the Howdy Doody Show? Not your LakeCountyEye.

The show is now off the air, and while there have been many Howdy Doody celebrity impersonators over the years, one of the best was in McHenry County this week. The tireless tax fighters at the McHenryCountyBlog recorded the performance, and your LakeCountyEye got some screencaps to see how this impersonator measured up against the real thing:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
welcome Mr Howdy Doody!

I just flew in and boy are my arms tired!

Fist bump!

Be sure to tune in tomorrow, boys & girls!

Remember this name -- Bruce Rauner. Damned if your LakeCountyEye can tell which one is the true Howdy Doody and which one is the Doody impersonator. Operatives can visit the McHenryCountyBlog for photos of the entire performance:

In the meantime, c'mon and join your LakeCountyEye in a spirited rendition of the Howdy Doody Theme Song ...
It's Howdy Doody Time.
It's Howdy Doody Time.
Bob Smith and Howdy Do
Say Howdy Do to you.
Let's give a rousing cheer,
Cause Howdy Doody's here,
It's time to start the show,
So kids let's go!
