was indeed sung on a kids' show during the 1950s. I believe the show was "Big Jon and Sparky" which was a radio show in which the host, Big Jon, pre-taped and speeded up the voice of his little elf-friend Sparky, then re-recorded himself talking to Sparky -- which quite a feat of engineering in those one-track mono days. The song is in a kind of waltz tempo. There are some web sites devoted to Big Jon and Sparky, if you are interested in further information.
