From big screens to high-definition, America’s obsession with the television started more than 50 years ago when the first TV catalogs and print advertisements began defining the suburban family by the size, color, and features of its television. TV WONDERLAND looks at the unique history of the television through the lens of advertising the campaigns, slogans, and sales pitches revealing the cultural fabric of the time. The centerpiece of the home, the television united families as moms, dads, kids, and sometimes neighbors, too, gathered together to watch their favorite programs. It entertained, it educated, it celebrated the holidays! No wonder it secured a place in the home for so long. The television was a permanent part of the family.
