In addition to being the historical home of Washington Irving in Tarrytown, New York, Sunnyside is also a small town in the dry dullness of the Yakima Valley in Eastern Washington State. Nearby towns include Granger, Prosser, Wapato, Toppenish, and of course, Yakima.
In the early 1960's residents of Sunnyside could receive only two UHF television stations. The most popular show broadcast was called Uncle Jimmy's Clubhouse. Uncle Jimmy looked like Mr. Rogers, but more boring.
Guests consisted of children visiting on their birthday. As they ate cake and ice cream, they displayed to the viewers the presents they had received. In the middle of the show a Mr. Magoo cartoon was shown. At the end of the show a local troup of Cub Scouts or Brownies waved goodbye to the viewing audience.
