Marion King recording the programme 'Art Adventures' with Cusahaboo and Sean Bunny in the Radio Éireann GPO Studios, Dublin. King was a popular presenter of children's programmes in the 1940s and 1950s.
The Marion King presented series instigated an annual exhibition of children's art, the first of which was opened by Minister for Posts and Telegraphs, Erskine Childers. The exhibitions were shown in Dublin and in other centres around the country. Sean Bunny proved so popular a character that he got his own newspaper cartoon strip.
