Oh, how I loved this show! I was 8 in 1972 and 14 when it went off the air in 1978 -- THE target audience. I don't think there has ever been a kids show that equaled ZOOM. The 1990's version wasn't bad, but it still didn't have the coolness of the 70's original.
I had 3 or 4 ZOOM Cards and submitted a play at one point. Our PBS affiliate would show the episodes in the afternoon during the week and then on Saturday afternoons would show the entire week over a 2.5 hr block. I never missed it.
If only I'd had a way to record those shows back then. Maybe someday PBS will release a box set instead of the 2-DVD set. Until then, I just have my great memories.
