It's hard to come up with superlatives that could exaggerate the wide-ranging talent of this remarkable man. A passing glance at any one of his shows during his 13 years at Metromedia Television would turn up any one of a number of crazy characters, such as the knucklehead Norton Nork, Max the Cat Burglar, the pompous Big Professor, the mad scientist Dr. Gesundheidt or the inexplicable word game playing drum majorette Hambone - to say nothing of the wacky voice personas sans costumes that he would take on at any given moment without warning. Beginning in 1955, ending in 1968 and filled in-between with vaious names such as "Looney Tunes Show", "The Sandy Becker Show", "Sandy Becker's Funhouse" (sound familiar?), "Sandy's Hour" & more, the shows which George aka Sandy Becker broadcast live to the New York metropolitan area had no rivals anywhere in the world. Though many kid show hosts around him and after him were mentored by Mr. Becker - the great Chuck McCann got his start as a fellow kid show host on the same station due to his influence - none could ever capture the unique originality of Sandy's shows nor his range of versatility. As a child I had the great fortune to watch Sandy Becker until he retired from television when I was seven years old. One doesn't know how much one misses some things until they're gone, sometimes until they're long gone, and surely Sandy is one of those things to me. As an adult, I can still spend time with my mother, my father, and others of my tender youth and enjoy the opportunity of thanking them for all they've done for me, but I sure do miss the time and regret my inablity to say "thank you" to this wonderful man who did indeed play an important part in my childrearing. Even now, I doubt I'll ever lose the compulsion to occassionally scan the bottom left of my TV screen to see if Max the Cat Burglar had indeed broken out of jail again to make his get away to TV screen bottom right. Thanks for that, Sandy!
