Storyline

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.

It was a cute Saturday morning show featuring songs by Rick Springfield
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Saturday morning ABC cartoon showcased Rick Springfield's pop songs accompanying "groovy" montages ala "the Brady Kids" cartoon series. Rick was at the time being positioned as a sort of Aussie David Cassidy. The show was cute, harmless and, unfortunately, short-lived. (I still remember the catchy theme song over thirty years later: "Do you believe you believe in magic? Cause I believe I believe that I do. If you believe you believe in magic and your mission is magic your love will shine through. If there's one thing that the world needs it's a magic singing song. And I'll teach it to the whole world and make them sing along. Do you believe I believe in magic? Cause I believe I believe that I do. Yes, I can see you believe in magic. If your mission is magic your love will shine through. If your mission is magic your love'll shine through..." Rick Springfield not only provided the vocals for the musical interludes but played a character named "Rick." Animated "Rick" was drawn to look like a then-long haired Rick Springfield and in providing the voice for "Rick" Rick Springfield spoke with his native Australian accent.
