A Merry Christmas From Captain Jinks and Salty Sam

December 25, 2009

Any one from Central Illinois above a certain age knows who Captain Jinks and Salty Sam were.  For those who are not, these two locals hosted a campy show on Week-TV that involved cartoons, skits, gifts from a treasure chest and low brow entertainment for the kiddies.

At some point, Jared (“Mutt”) and Monte, ended up traveling to Peoria, IL to some function that featured Captain Jinks and Salty Sam.  To prove the  success of their endeavor, they even were able to obtain an eight inch by ten inch black and white photographed signed by Salty Sam.

Notice on the rear of the photograph Monte’s name is misspelled.  The misspelling of his name was not uncommon.
