Undated: 'Pogo Primer for Parents (TV Division)'

Written and illustrated by Walt Kelly, creator of the "Pogo" comic strip, this booklet was commissioned by the U.S. government (Children's Bureau, Social Security Administration, Department of Health, Education and Welfare). From the text: "Do not be afraid of your t.v. set. These things are probably here to stay. Do not be afraid of your child. He is not here to stay. He is a precious visitor. ... A machine is a bad sole companion. It needs help. You can help it. Love your child." It was available for 20 cents from the Government Printing Office in Washington.
