Song Lyrics:
"ENGINEER" BILL STULLA has to be our all time favorite engineer. Junior Engineers all over the Los Angeles area learned about drinking their milk via his "Red Light, Green Light" game. That was the game that reminded children they could only drink their milk on the green flashing light but never, ever on the red one, because as every good engineer knows, you never go on a red light.

The lights were all green when Mr. Stulla came up with the idea of playing an engineer for a cartoon show that needed a host. Incorporating his love (and hobby) of trains, "Cartoon Express" was born.

Raising his own five-year-old daughter at the time, Mr. Stulla's popularity grew due to his genuine affection for children. Viewers were invited to send in postcards with their names and a daily drawing would ensure an invitation for two lucky kids to come on the show as "Junior Engineers" and view the elaborate train layout. "Junior Engineers" who appeared daily on his show were asked to bring in a model train car they had built as part of their entrance to the show. Reminiscing with chuckles years later, Mr. Stulla said that sometimes you could see that the kids had built the models themselves and other times they had a lot of help from daddy. But one child in particular had showed up with a rather disastrous looking model. When questioned about it, Engineer Bill was told that daddy didn't make it but that his secretary had to build it the night before!

"Cartoon Express" was a delight for all Los Angeles children till the roundhouse closed in 1966. Mr. Stulla received Emmy awards in 1960 and 1961 for "Outstanding Children's Program".
