Miss Tickle is a high school teacher who has some magical powers, augmented by accessories in her bag. She supervises the Adventurers Club after school hours. Most episodes start with interaction between the club members that defines the theme for the episode. After this theme definition, Rick Springfield (he plays himself) calls on a magic gramophone to ask the Adventurers Club for help with a problem in one of the magical worlds beyond the blackboard. Miss Tickle transforms a statue of a cat into a real one. The cat, Tut-Tut, is the key that allows her to draw a door on the blackboard that opens and allows the club to travel to the magical worlds. The club members, Tut-Tut, and Miss Tickle travel to the world where Rick and his owl Ptolemy are waiting for assistance.

The Original Magic Schoolbus?

I liked the fact that Rick Springfield (who I hadn't heard of before this series!) lived in another universe beyond the blackboard of the classroom. Rick used the gramaphone to communicate with the class before the portal was opened. I remember two episodes: one where Rick was in a "backwards" universe, and he was shouting "Cylinder the Reverse!" until the class figured out how to understand what he was saying. Another involved some people who stole the door from Rick's side of the doorway, but the door in the classroom was still there. The children had to replace the other door before someone closed the doorway, or there would be no way for them to get back. Interesting take on inter-dimensional travel!
