When I was a kid, in Eastern Oklahoma, the two biggest television stations were KTUL 8 and KOTV 6, in Tulsa. Channel 8 had a popular weather man, Don Woods (who passed away a few months ago), and he was a cartoonist. He drew a cartoon of his character "Gusty" in some comical weather situation, every day at 6 and 10. But Channel 6's weatherman had a character too: King Lionel. Ventriloquist Lee Woodward did the weather there till the mid 1980's. There is lots of information, photos and video on him here: http://tulsatvmemories.com/kiddie2.html
