This show is the shiznit!!
5 August 2003 | by (South Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show ALL THE TIME when I was a little lass. When the show would start, and the song "One elephant went out to play, upon a spider's web one day. He had such enormous fun, that he called for another elephant to come," started to play, my mother and I would dance in the den together. When that show went off the air, there were other shows too: Fred Penner's Place, Eureka's Castle, David the Gnome. But once those shows went off the air as well, I lost faith in TV. WHEN WILL THEY LEARN WHEN A SHOW IS GOOD ENOUGH TO STAY ON?!?!?
