‘My World and Welcome to It’

I am 46 years old and remember a show when I was under 10 about a man who worked as a cartoon artist. His office was in his home, in his attic, I think. The cartoon characters that he drew would come to life and speak to him whenever something was going on in the artist's life. No one I know seems to remember this show and I am beginning to think I have lost my mind!

You're not losing your mind—you're remembering the short-lived TV sitcom My World and Welcome To It, which aired for only one season in 1969-70. The show starred veteran actor William Windom—who has appeared in nearly 250 other TV and movie roles—and was based on the whimsical cartoons and essays of real-life humorist James Thurber.
