Nothing lifts young patients' spirits like a visit from a favorite television character. Here we see children entertained by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle member Donatello at Fontana Medical Center circa 1982 (above) and Sesame Street regulars Bert and Ernie at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Hayward and Oakland in 1982 (below).
