Marv Welch, who in the 1950s played Wixie Wonderland on WXYZ-TV, passed away this morning after a short illness. I'll post more details on detroitkidshow.com as I receive them.

What terrible and sad news...I had the honor of seeing Marv perform last year at Jack's Waterfront over on the east side. Johnny Ginger was also on the bill. It was marvelous - funny and raunchy! I can't share most of Marv's jokes here as it would violate the decency rules of this fine forum! RIP Marv - here's looking up your glass!
