A new, third-party presidential candidate has come out of the woodwork. A career politician who embraces his many strings attached. A child-friendly figure who freely admits to being wooden and stage-managed. An experienced on-camera personality who can always smile on cue. On July 4, the real fireworks will be found on COZI TV, where America's newest candidate for the oval office will announce his candidacy before a nationwide audience. He will offer his views on the issues of the day, the challenges facing our nation and perhaps most revealing, his unique perspective on the characters already headlining this year's campaign. Having run for office twice and won both times, Howdy Doody may be the most qualified candidate in the race.

Howdy Doody - COZI TV

On Independence Day, COZI TV will feature the return of the iconic television figure to America's living rooms from coast-to-coast. The day's Howdy Doody marathon will mark the first time these episodes aired on television in more than 50 years, since NBC aired the final episode on September 24, 1960. The July 4th marathon will also include a new compilation special, Howdy Doody for President, comprising segments from earlier shows where Howdy's run for president in 1948 and 1952 were featured. As part of the original content produced for the special, Howdy has some choice remarks about our current presidential candidates and the tone of the 2016 election. Additional original content introduces each episode in the marathon. The campaign special and Howdy Doody marathon will begin at 9 AM and continue to 3 PM on Monday, July 4 (check local listings). Nine episodes are scheduled for the marathon.
