NBC Saturday morning TV show. Fast paced, combining animations and live action, much like a "Laugh-In" for kids. Lots of splashy graphics, quick jokes, with some educational elements, too. Some of the "Laugh-In" cast were regulars, as well. Written by Keith Weston <jkweston@email.unc.edu>

All-perfect, all-pleasing. A TV anomaly.
31 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was all but a grown man when this was on but made a point of watching it, it was unique and very very good.

Like an Erector set, they didn't tell you how a thing was done, they required you to look at it and figure out what you were seeing. The charm of the low-res film/video footage is a treasure as well. No useless, off-putting, distracting gimmery-crackery and senseless sound effects/music like today.

(Niggling: Another review states there was no animation, but I remember a low-tech animated dinosaur eating mustard plants in the episode which contained the manufacture of yellow mustard.)

And the concept of having three presenters be wrong (via speculation or utter bull-crap) first was--brilliant. And, no voice of God naming things/pointing the way--brilliant again. I do recall, fondly, the unobtrusive use of child voice-overs, asking questions.

The casting as well seems an unlikely dream that came true.

I also was pleased that the three series-run presenters' names each had initial "W"s. But that's just me.
