    2. Peanut Gallery

      General discussions about the presentations about peanut gallery The term originated back in the theatre, where the cheapest seats were those way at the bottom floor and where people purchased peanuts because they were the cheapest snack. If they disapproved of the performance, they would throw the peanuts. Howdy Doody, a show that started in the 1940's (not 50's), the children in the crowd were considered the "Peanut Gallery."
