Revisit the Kooky Cooky House on YouTube


When winter comes around, I like to refresh my Kooky Cooky House web site.

If you were a kid in Milwaukee in the 60s and 70s, you might remember seeing Santa at Capitol Court mall and eating a gingerbread cookie.

This year, the additions to the site are spectacular.  Gino Salomone sent along a videotape containing movie footage and television commercials that show Santa at the House as well as the interior robot and animatronic gingerbread men.  I've moved the clips to YouTube.

Jay Svajdlenka sent along four color pictures he received from Capitol Court management just before they closed.  They show the interior in great detail.

The collection also includes old advertisements and the coloring book you received while waiting in line.
