Storyline

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 Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Childhood flashback!
9 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show every day when I was a kid. My favorite part in every episode was the little fuzzy mouse that lived in the clock. Of course, I forget its name, but it came out whenever the hosts would tell the time on the giant clock. Polkaroo was another of my favorites. I'd get all excited when he'd stop by for a visit, but never could figure out why the male hosts always seemed to miss him. Another of my favorites was the doll named Marigold. I used to ask my mom if she could get me a Marigold doll, but we never did find one. I really hope they bring this series out on DVD someday, so my two children can share in the joy and excitement I experienced as a small child.
