Hey Cathy...below are two links about "Ding Dong School" with Miss Frances, which might help refresh the old brain cells. When watching the show as a kid, I remember thinking she was really "old." Turns out I was right, as she was born in 1907! I do know that her show, and "Romper Room" had my parent's full approval.
