On This Date in Minnesota History: November 19

November 19, 1959 - Rocky and His Friends made its ABC debut on [this date]. Audiences loved Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose and their adventures in Frostbite Falls, Minn. “In its first season, Rocky and His Friends topped the Nielsen ratings for daytime shows. In 1961, it joined NBC’s evening lineup. Renamed The Bullwinkle Show, the primetime version was produced in color. New characters were added to the cast, including the lovable, but bumbling Dudley Do-Right of the Canadian Mounties and his nemesis, Snidely Whiplash.”
