Six-year-old girls use a “Winky Dink” drawing kit on their home TV screen as they watch the kids’ program.

The show, which aired for four years in the 1950s, has been cited as “the first interactive TV show,” especially in light of its “magic drawing screen” — basically, a piece of vinyl plastic that stuck to the TV screen, and on which kids (and, no doubt, some adults) would trace the action on the screen.

Herea gallery of photographs that unapologetically celebrates what is arguably America’s true national pastime: watching TV.
