"A decent name, Billy reminds me of the character of Billy Forrester from the 1973 children's book "How to Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell, the book was made into a
"CBS Storybreak" episode of the same name in 1985, and it was hosted by Bob Keeshan, who played Captain Kangaroo years earlier on TV," Sep. 27, 2019:
