Fun little series.
24 September 2004 | by (West Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Always wondered what ever happened to the film or video elements to this fun little series. Loved it as a kid. I used to view it on our local NY network on Channel 5. As simple as it was looking back, it was a very put together series and had good story lines. Hopefully someone out there or the original producers of the series will someday revive it and air it again, maybe Nickelodeon or Disney Channel. I remember the great titles and theme song with visuals of the ocean crashing on a rocky shore. Anyway I have fond memories of the series. It was produced at a time when television was still in its infancy, and children's programming wasn't the main priority for the networks, national or local for that matter. With that being said, it reflected the positive attitude being conveyed to children on television at that time as opposed to what is being produced today. The show did not promote negative exploitation to children.
