Featured Figure
Junior

 

Date Created: Unknown

Created by: Martin Stevens

Used by: Norma Jarboe

Trivia: 
1. Junior appeared on the inaugural broadcast of Louisville, Kentucky's WAVE-TV 3 on November 24, 1948.
2. WAVE-TV 3 was the first television station in the state of Kentucky, so Junior helped launch TV in that state.
3. He was the star of WAVE 3's Junior's Club, a children's show that aired from that inaugural broadcast until 1950.
4. Junior was donated to Vent Haven Museum by WAVE-TV 3 in 1987.
5. Junior is made of papier mache.
6. Junior is on display in Building Two of the museum on the left side. He can be seen in the Quicktime Virtual Pan Number Two by "turning" to your right after the page loads and "looking" through the door into the left side of the building. If you zoom in, you can see Junior on the second row from the bottom (Hint: There is a photo of Junior with Norma Jarboe sitting to the left of Junior).
