Arthur Gordon “Art” Linkletter (July 17, 1912 – May 26, 2010) was a Canadian-born American radio and television personality. He was the host of House Party, which ran on CBS radio and television for 25 years, and People Are Funny, on NBC radio-TV for 19 years. Linkletter was famous for interviewing children on House Party and Kids Say the Darndest Things, which led to a series of books quoting children. A native of Canada, he became a naturalized United States citizen in 1942.

Art Linkletter’s Kids was a 1963-64 gag cartoon panel drawn by the prolific cartoonist Stan Fine and distributed by King Features Syndicate. In 1963, Linkletter became the endorser and spokesman for Milton Bradley’s The Game of Life. His picture appeared on the game’s $100,000 bills and also on the box alongside the statement “I heartily endorse this game”.
