[WA] RIP Chris Wedes (JP Patches)

I just found out he died this morning. »www.komonews.com/news/local/JP-P···336.html and »www.kirotv.com/news/news/chris-w···s/nPz6R/. He will be missed, even by those who have never seen his show.

Many fond memories watching him on TV in the 70's. I actually got to meet him I think it was the Summer of 1995. RIP! JP....

Yup, I fondly remember J.P., Captain Puget and "Buzzy", Stan Boreson and "Slo-Mo" and "No-Mo" and our Tacoma local guy Brakeman Bill with his partner "Crazy Donkey"!

Ahhhh.....the halcyon days of our youth!

He was our local clown, had the longest running locally produced TV show in history (he was on KIRO-TV 1958 - 1981).

Oh I know who J.P. was, saw him each morning at a neighbors house while waiting for the carpool to school.
I just was seeking his insight to stress reduction, But I guess thats what J.P. was to chris wede.
RIP

I believe she was "Wunda-Wunda" and her real name was Ruth Prinz. I seem to recall she had an owl as a friend and that's about all I remember of her.
