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>

You call this a show for kids?
7 April 2003 | by (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

You call this a show for kids? The Polka Dot Door was one of the worst kids shows ever made. Not to mention it is Canadian. There are no kids on this show what so ever. Just two adult hosts, one male and one female who made complete fools out of themselves. They talk to stuffed animals, like they are supposed to talk back. Only the female host saw the Polkaroo.......hello it is the male host dressed up. Listen carefully to the Polkaroo's voice!!! I caught on at a very young age. Any parents out there whose children talk to their stuffed animals, a word of advice, don't let your kids watch this show!!!! And that that awful song that they would sing called "Imagine". I can still here that song 25 years later in my head. Where are my ear plugs when I need them??!!!!
