Dear Sirs:

"Miss Nancy's Store" is the answer to this article.

For once, couldn't the viewer be considered and some other program be dropped and put the money into this feature that holds so many children's attention?

Sincerely,
Mrs. George Brant

P.S.
The red is to get your attention.

General Note

As a teenager Nancy was one of the first mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs, a job which earned her a trip to Hollywood to double for Ann Blythe in swimming parts for the 1948 movie "Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid". In 1966 Nancy starred in "Miss Nancy's Store" produced by WFSU. The show, one of the earliest children's television shows, later ended in August of 1967 due to lack of funds and Nancy went to work for the Florida Department of Education until she retired.
