We recently met Richard, Nevaeh and Krissa when they visited the State Fair with WFAA’s Wednesday’s Child. It was our delight to play a small part of their magical day at the Fair - but wouldn’t it be amazing if we could also help find them a forever family? After you watch this video, you’ll want to share this and help them too. 🙏🏼

Richard, Nevaeh and Krissa hope a forever family will see the three of them as the real prize and adopt them -- together.

Our Story

We like to think that you can credit America’s obsession with fried foods, in part, to brothers Neil & Carl Fletcher. Fletcher’s Original Corny Dogs, the famous meal on a stick, was invented in 1938 and debuted at the 1942 State Fair of Texas. The rest is history…

In 1938, brothers Neil and Carl Fletcher were winding down long-term careers in Vaudeville, having spent several of those years performing at the State Fair of Texas in a show called “The Drunkard”. Fortuitously, as the men were plotting their next moves in life, Carl was offered a unique opportunity to run a food booth at the Fair Park. Both men had spent years marveling at the lack of cuisine offered to the Park patrons and knew they had an opportunity on their hands.

According to Neil, there was a local baker on Oak Lawn Ave. who served a dish of hot dogs baked in cornmeal in the shape of an ear of corn, and while it tasted good, the process was time-consuming and complicated. The brothers tested the recipe and realized that by frying it, not only did it cut time in the cooking process but now it was a mobile food on a stick.

The first year the Fletcher’s served their newly fried invention; people didn’t know what it was. They had never seen anything like it before. In fact, the brothers had to cut them in half and give away samples before people were willing to try it. That year they brought home $8,000 at 15c each during the 17 days of the State Fair. Word spread and our corny dogs quickly became the hottest thing on the midway!
