Just as every major city had at least one horror movie host, they also had a children's show host. In the 1960s, in Cleveland, it was Captain Penny, but for kids growing up in the '70s it was Barnaby portrayed by Linn Sheldon. The character, originally a leprechaun, appeared on Channel 3 starting in 1957 (2 years after Captain Penny debuted on Channel 5). In 1968, Sheldon moved over to the new independent station in town, Channel 43 where Barnaby ran until 1990. He closed each show by saying, "if anyone calls, tell them Barnaby says 'hello.'"
