What an engrossing story. Never thought about the TV as being a boogie man in the box, but it can be. Loved what the little girl said about the TV.

Great title, and a sweet story with lots of nostalgia.
This is a sweet little story. I like the idea of a children's story set in the 50s. I also like the precocious little Connie, she reminds just a tad of my favorite character Wrigley. Nice writing. Often when adults write for kids they have the adult be the problem solver; I liked how you had Connie resolve the conflict with just a little help from Mother. Great job!

Boogie Man in the Box, is still a real good description of television. I enjoyed your story and it brought back memories.
