Best show in the world, at 7:30 in the morning., 16 March 2006
Author: Nathan Spavold from Canada

I used to watch this series of shorts every morning before school. The CBC used to show it in the mornings with "The New Adventures of Pinoccio", another Rankin / Bass classic. I wish they were still on or I could get them on DVD so kids today could enjoy this very funny show. A friend of mine still swears to this day that there is an episode where Dorothy says "Dammit Toto, get down from there." But this is to be taken with a grain of salt, because he's told me on several occasions that Mr.Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is dead. What I really liked about the show was that often repeatable dialog from the show. Also the jokes were right where they should have been for a kids show, not so lame you could never repeat them after the age of 12 but not so sophisticated that they went over the head of the target audience.
