Howdy Doody to Return to TV?

In reports that talk show host Jay Leno, who left NBC's tonight show may be returning, current host, Conan O'Brien wants to revive the Howdy Doody television show. The statement to revive the children's show featuring the 48-freckled puppet Howdy Doody, came from sources in O'Brien's camp.

"In the 1950's," an O'Brien rep said, "Howdy had 48 freckles that represented each state in the union and after we counted Conan's freckles, he has exactly 50, which could make the show more realistic." Alaska and Hawaii were not voted in as states until 1959 and 1960.

In a statement on-air, Conan reportedly told his audience, "I'm not worried about leaving, Jay knows his shit and he's the best. Probably even better than Johnny Carson was." Johnny Carson was Leno's predecessor.

Jay Leno's wife Mavis wasn't pleased with the announcement and tried to reach the Howdy Doody show's creator, Roger Muir only to find has been deceased for quite some time. "This is a joke," Mavis told USA Today, "I want Jay at home where he belongs. I'm tired of him working and kissing all those pretty girls on-air."

Leno was seen tearing out of NBC's parking lot in one of his 959 collector-cars and couldn't be reached for a reaction on the statements made by both O'Brien and his wife. His agent, however, told the press, "Jay is Jay, and I have no power over the deals he makes. He should grow up and let me be his guide, "said the agent, "after all, I'm the one who made him a star."

Over at CBS, late night talk show host David Letterman reportedly said, "Nifty."
