What was the show?

1. "Say kids, what time is it?"

2. The name of the show was spelled and sung

3. The theme song was "Where everybody knows your name"

4. Some of the famous tag lines were: "How sweet it is" and "To the moon ..." and "pow, right in the kisser"

5. Ed McMahon always introduced him

Was Steve Allen the first night show host? And I think Cowboy Bob was the man on Howdy Doody.
