The theme for the "Polka Dot Door," a five-day-a-week children's series, explained the main concept of the show "songs, stories and so much more!" Two human hosts a man and a woman led simple games, stories and songs inside a giant playhouse that had (egad!) a polka-dotted front door. Each show had a specific theme, with the stuffed toy inhabitants (including a doll and a teddy bear) made part of the action. During each show, the Polkaroo a mischievous polka-dotted kangaroo visited the two human hosts, while other guests dropped by on occassion. This series, which originated in Canada, was also broadcast on PBS stations in the United States. Written by
