“Out of the clear blue of the Western sky comes Sky King!”

That sentence is burned forever in my brain. It was the opening of a popular children’s show on Saturday morning, Sky King, from the 1950’s and 60’s.  It’s  funny what my mind recalls about this show. The star was an actor named Kirby Grant. The name of his aircraft was The Songbird. His niece was named Penny and she called him Uncle Sky.  The sponsor was Nabisco Wheat Honeys and Rice Honeys and cartoon bees were involved in the promotion for said cereals.
