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>

Freaky, Freaky Puppets
2 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone needs to put this thing on DVD. If only to scare the pants off of a new generation of kids. I was fascinated by this show, and remember precious little about it other than it featured three kids (including perennial favorite Pamelyn Ferdin) and a Laugh-In Joke Wall-type series of doors out of which a number of puppets would poke their heads and talk to the kids. And these puppets scared the HELL out of me. But it was a good scared because I loved watching the show. I don't remember anything about the cartoon elements of the show, or even that Chuck Jones and Mel Blanc were involved (when I watched it, at age five). But I read recently that Chuck was pretty heavily involved in the production of the show, so: daughter Linda Jones, if you're listening and you own the rights to this thing, put it on DVD! Does anyone remember the names of the puppets or what creatures they were supposed to be? There was one in particular which really gave me the heeby-jeebies, but I couldn't even describe it now to save my life.
