I remember Heck, and beloved Rusty, who was the third guy?

Charles Cyril “Uncle Charlie” LaFranchise.

Uncle Charlie ran the Roundhouse. Also narrated the Zoo Key Storybooks.

Jann, I can't believe you don't remember Uncle Charlie on Channel 12. Charlie portrayed a locomotive engineer at Uncle Charlie's Roundhouse. I thought you loved railroading and you missed the Roundhouse?

Like so many on KPTV back in the day, Charlie was pressed into service on many different programs and as a booth announcer. In addition to his kid's cartoon show, he hosted a home parade type show where local real estate companies would buy time to show off the latest listings.

I wasnt allowed a lot of tv as a child, after I got to around 7, the Roundhouse was one I mustve missed. I was raised on the SP&S.. my 1st home was right next to the tracks, Snake River, WA.
