Fellow Canadian Paul Allan Schultz died at 75 yrs old. He was a TV/radio personality in Ontario, Montreal and Ottawa. I remember sometime in the 60's my Mom took me over to Windsor to be on the "Poopdeck Paul" TV Show. I really don't remember anything but bright lights and lots of other kids.

Does anyone else have any info on him?

Char, I surprised YOU haven't heard of him.lol

Here are excerpts from Sept.21 article in Detroit News:

DETROIT TV CULTURAL ICON "POOPDECK PAUL" DIES

Among baby boomers, few Detroit television personalities in the 60's were bigger than Paul Allan Schultz-better known as "Poopdeck Paul". He hosted POPEYE & PALS on Channel 9(then CKLW-TV, now CBET-TV) between 1956 and 1966, first as a weekend host and eventually as a seven-day-a-week personality...Between cartoons, he hosted limbo contests on the show, when limbo was the rage amoung grade-schoolers. After the Beatles became big in 1964, he hosted a game in which contestants were judged by their ability to lip-sync Beatles records. He hosted miniature golf, football-throwing, bowling and table tennis competitions as well...Along with the late Toby David, who played Captain Jolly, and Jerry Booth, who played Jingles the Clown, he ruled local kid's shows during the 60's. A native of Chesley, Ontario, he started his entertainment career in radio-first in Kitchener, later in Montreal and Ottawa.

Interesting but still unknown to me! Was it a Toronto broadcast - I don't recognize those call letters. They may be Ottawa call letters.
I was born in 55 but even in the early 60's I never watched him or heard of him in Toronto.
