Soldiers Gals USOImagine a sunny day with clear blue skies. Now, add to the picture a warm lawn of the deepest green, perhaps with just one or two dandelions. Place a bright-eyed toddler in the picture. Finally, surround the kid with a half dozen or so frisky, fuzzy, and playful puppies.

It is a scene presented in dozens of ads, but it still leaves us giggling nearly as much as the kid getting all those puppy kisses.

"Puppy love" is often a term for a crush or what feels like true love to a kid without the maturity to understand romantic love. Even though the youngster in question will likely get over their crush sooner than later, while they are in the middle of it the experience holds untellable amounts of joy, nervousness, fear, pain, and ecstasy as the syrupiest of romance novels. To be the object of an adolescent crush can be even more frightening for the adult involved as it is for the youngster who is so stirred up by the emotional freight train.

While puppy love might seem superficial and unimportant, the feelings aroused in the youngster going through it are very real and important. The mature persons who care for the kid will realize that the enchantment, as sweet as it is, will be temporary in most cases, the results will have a telling effect on every relationship they have for the rest of their lives.

In Western society, puppy love is considered a bittersweet part of growing up which just about everyone experiences. While it can be amusing for those around it, most people consider it a part of growing up and let it slide. In parts of Chinese society, there is a great deal of stigma attached to zaolian (早恋), or "early love". As the People's Republic becomes more and commercially focused, parents of junior high school and high school aged children want to protect their kids from any distractions as they are preparing for their university entrance examination. Puppy love is so discouraged that many enter university never experiencing any sort of romantic relationship.

Charleston 1920s danceThe Adventures of Archie Andrews, September 18, 1948, NBC. Riverdale's favorite redhead seems to be "off his feed". Mrs. Andrews thinks her boy is sick and Jughead doesn't understand, but the simple fact is that Archie is in love with Miss Biddle, the new history teacher. Betty and Veronica probably won't understand, either, but after all, they are "just kids".

The Life of Riley, January 27, 1950, NBC. The newspaper reports a rash of crimes by juvenile gangs. Riley discovers that Junior has been sneaking out at night. Could Junior be part of the gang? Or is there a pretty girl down the street?

Fed up after a year in New York, Susan Applegate is determined to get back to Iowa, but she doesn't have enough money for a ticket, but she can afford a kid's ticket if she can pass for a twelve-year-old. She manages to get on the train and finds protection with an Army Major traveling back to the military academy where he teaches. The disguise gets a little thin when the Major's fiancé boards the train, but still convinced that "SuSu" needs his protection the Major decides to take her to the academy where her mother can pick her up. Naturally, "SuSu" begins to fall for the attractive Major!

The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show, April 3, 1949, NBC, "The Sponsor's Daughter". Mr. Scott from the Rexall Headquarters stops by Harris's home to ask Phil's band to play at his daughter's high school dance. The poor girl has a huge crush on Phil.
