Hi Stuart:

Thank you so much for reminding me about Mayor Art's sendoff after each show....he'd say it like "I'll be seeing you.....and after years of the show being on...the kids already knew to yell "SUB-SE-QUENT-LY" - and as the credits were rolling and the show was about to fade out you could hear Mayor Art asking the kids "Now, who can tell me what subsequently means?" and the kids in the "City Council" would be raising their hands trying to be the first one to show off their knowledge! Remember, before the Popeye cartoons (and ONLY before the POPEYE cartoons) the kids would yell "Bluey-Bluey-Bluey" - not sure what that meant or why.

According to a friend of mine who used to work at KOBY back in the 50's, Art Findley is still ALIVE and living in Vancouver, B.C.
