morality stories and 70's ideology directed towards children thru music and comedy, 9 December 2005
Author: Eddie Christie from United States

Was it a drug trip? Who knows, however, I do know that I was "hooked" on it as a kid. The story lines intermixed with music and comedy are fun loving cleverly disguised morality stories and 70's ideology directed towards children and acted in a BIG fashion – very suitable for children – which can seem kinda tripy to adults. The music was a wonderful mix between typical 70's sounds and airy Celtic-like folk music. I certainly can look back and know that a lot of my morals and ideas of how to treat other human beings came from the messages presented in the show. However, as an adult I also see some odd behavior – the character of Harmony is often making fun of others, how ironic. Even though "modern" children might not understand the concepts behind the "bad" characters (along with LP's and record players, lol), I would still highly recommend this for children as well as a fun reminder to adults looking for find or relive their past. Plus the songs are still fun to hear and sing.
