Storyline

ABC-TV's Saturday morning series hosted by three children (two boys and one girl) with short skits and songs mixed together with cartoons of an educational (e.g. the story of Icarus) and of a purely entertainment nature. The focus was the Curiosity Shop itself, a sort of tame Pee-Wee Herman Playhouse full of puppets, action figures and wild and educational props. Written by Keith Weston <jkweston@email.unc.edu>

A "lost" children's classic
18 September 2000 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

Probably one of the best shows ever made for Saturday morning TV, not the usual animated dreck but a fun show that was also informative and educational. I remember best a show about horror, done for Halloween, where I first saw the unmasking scene from "The Phantom of the Opera". I even had a Curiosity Shop lunchbox! Hopefully, with the ever growing hunger of the cable/satellite TV monster, this show will someday resurface.
