This children's program has a connection to the movie "The Warriors"as 2 of the 3 original hosts Leon W. Grant and Ginny Ortiz had small cameos in the movie, along with the late Marcelino Sánchez who was featured in both The "Bloodhound Gang" segments on 321 Contact and as "Rembrandt" one of the titular "Warriors".

Watching this show was an after school ritual for me. I still remember the episode where the kids were stranded in the middle of Death Valley and spelled out HELP in rocks, hoping for a plane to fly past them. Do you remember the bizzare episodes of the Bloodhound Gang? The science they taught everyone who watched it still haunts me to this day. Do you remember the pinhole camera in the back of the van when they got kidnapped by the art thieves, or the ladder the fat lady broke going up to the attic to get her mothball infested dress?? Am I the only one who remembers this stuff??
