    "Howdy Doody" Studio Curtain Polka Dots. Howdy Doody and his puppet pals often performed on Howdy Doody (1947 - 1960) in front of their tan stage curtain featuring bright polka dots, and this lot includes three of the large felt polka dots (red, green & navy blue) in various sizes from the iconic show's backdrop. The curtain itself was acquired directly from the show's puppeteer, though it was poorly stored and consequently badly damaged. Still in excellent condition, these round felt polka dots were carefully removed, then matted in common with a photo of Howdy Doody. Authenticated by the world's foremost curators of television artifacts, The Comisar Collection of Beverly Hills.
