Official Guess- Marilyn Monroe

Come to think of it, I've never been in that drunk/morning after fight scenario, but it sounds plausible.

He is a famous age of sail explorer/navigator, but he's not Christopher Columbus.

This early TV program ran from 1947 to 1960; it was network TV's first weekday children's show, and NBC's first show broadcast in color. What show was it?

I'm going to guess "The Howdy Doody Show"

The Howdy Doody Show was set in a fictional town. What was the name of the town?
Wait 24 hours before doing a search.

Since I am leaving Sunday morning, I will not guess on the town.
The host was Buffalo Bob.
I do not remember seeing this show live. Same thing for Hopalong Cassidy, I do not remember him either.

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Howdy Doody Show (including the name of the town) is at this site in Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howdy_Doody

This show was quite the institution. So many characters and support personnel. It was produced in Rockefeller Center, New York City.

I was born in 1953 and just do not recall seeing the show on TV.
With so many cable channels on nowadays, I am watching some other shows from that period and they are all new to me - especially the Western show Bat Masterson. I never saw Ramar of the Jungle or Hopalong Cassidy either.
