Davies played Carmen the Nurse on WCCO-TV Channel 4 from October
1954 to March 1977, a total of twenty-two and a half years. Carmen
was probably the longest-running children's television character
in the Twin Cities, although she only appeared on Axel and
His Dog sporadically for the first eight years or so. She
was initially recruited as a substitute host for the show when
Clellan Card was taken ill suddenly in 1954. She became the regular
co-host of the show around the spring of 1963, after Don Stolz
(who played Towser the dog and Tallulah the cat) left the program.
After Clellan Card died on April 13, 1966, the name of the show
was initially changed to "The Treehouse" with Carmen
as the sole host. Within a few years, the show was renamed "Carmen's
Cottage" or simply known as "Carmen."
