What a Great Show!
23 February 2003 | by (McKees Rocks, Pa) – See all my reviews

For me, I really liked Shining Time Station. I liked it they have both Ringo Starr and George Carlin as Mr. Conductor. I did like Ringo Starr as Mr. Conductor, I like it every time he appear and disappear. But, when George Carlin was Mr. Conductor I really like him, he was my favorite. I really liked the kids on the show my favorites were Dan, Kara, Becky, Matt, and Tanya after all they all were cousins on the show. I saw an episode when they had all 5 kids on there, it was when the kids wanted to play baseball and Scheemer was their coach, it was funny. I even saw the first episode of the second season, when it was Halloween and the characters Dan, Kara, Becky, Mr. Conductor played by George Carlin and Billy Twofeathers was introduced, Matt and Tanya was on their too. I wish that Shining Time Station was back on the air so families everywhere can watch it with their kids.
