Enginn* (for Engineer, etc.)

If you were a kid in Southern California during the late 50s or early 60s, perhaps you also were glued to the TV watching Chucko the Clown in the morning, Sheriff John at lunchtime, and Engineer Bill in the evening. William "Engineer Bill" Stulla died August 12 at age 97. Engineer Bill, seen in today's picture with Chucko the Clown, hosted "Cartoon Express," a popular Los Angeles-area children's television show that ran from 1954 to 1966. The show featured Engineer Bill and guests playing "Red Light, Green Light," a contest that aimed to get children to drink their milk.

Enginneer = RED LIGHT!!
Engineer = GREEN LIGHT!!
