In the spirit of encouraging racial understanding and human diversity, this anthology series presents a variety of segments along those themes. Through documentaries, continuing dramatic series like "Outerscope One," comedy spots like The Great Job Hunt and animated illustrations of various folktales, the breadth of human society is explored.

Way back in my youth, I would tune in after school to watch "Vegetable Soup", a show like no other I'd seen at the time. And a show that taught important lessons each week about playing fair, telling the truth, getting along with others and, every once in a while, a pretty tasty snack recipe.
Let's see, how much can I remember about this show? I recall a puppet segment where a bunch of kids build a rocket ship and get lost, traveling to different planets and helping the aliens with their problems on their way back home.
There was also a live-action part with a young boy that owned a pet python named Nigel in the inner-city and dealt with topics of responsibility and other truths of pet ownership.
Then there was an animated spoon (I think) that gave out recipes for guacamole and other after school treats that kids could easily make.
I'm sure I've forgotten other parts of this great show, but there were more, to be sure (including the surreal animated segments in-between) and some very cool lessons to be learned within.
Thanks, "Vegetable Soup".
