Happy's Party was a children's TV program broadcast on the DuMont Television Network and originating from the DuMont station WDTV in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The show ran on Saturday mornings from September 6, 1952, until May 9, 1953, with 30 minutes on the network and an additional 30 minutes broadcast to the local Pittsburgh market. Happy was a dog puppet which interacted with host Ida Mae Maher (died July 3, 1969).[1][2]

Episode status[edit]

As with most DuMont series, no episodes were believed to survive. In April 2015, however, Clarke Ingram, webmaster of the DuMont historical website, announced that he had located a partial show (15 minutes) and purchased it from a film collector, with plans to share it publicly. [3]
