THE TRIP THROUGH MAYBELAND

the cinnamon bear

For many young Girl’s and Boy’s in the 1950’s the Christmas season
had officially arrived with the airing of “The Cinnamon Bear”. The
fifteen minute syndicated radio series was heard locally on KEX
between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. It chronicled the 
the adventures of Judy and Jimmy and their quest to find 
the missing Silver Star that belonged on the top of their
Christmas tree. They were aided in the search by Paddy 
O’Cinnamon who helped Judy and Jimmy get the star
back from the wicked Crazyquilt Dragon. The initial
broadcast of this program debuted in 1937.
