Prime Time Kid's Show.
15 July 2003 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

For years, before the internet, I tried and tried to remember the name of this show. I happened to stumble upon it, here, and was sad that there was very little about it, sooooo, I guess it's time for me to comment on what I remember...

If my memory serves me, this was an hour long show, on the ABC television network. It ran for about a year, on Friday nights. I remember the Friday part, as that was TV dinner night in my home, and my parents would have dinner on a card table, in front of the big(for 1968) Sears color TV we had.

There were animated hosts from the story "The Wizard Of Oz", and if you read the cast list you note that some of the cream of the crop of voice talent lent their vocal stylings to this show. These "hosts" would introduce a segment of either live action, or animated stories.

Oh, to be 7 again, and watch this one.
