Storyline

Children's program that was often franchised rather than syndicated (meaning, local television stations could use their own hostesses in lieu of national hosts if they chose). A typical program featured a group of six to 10 children, ages 4-6, in a variety of games, songs and rhymes and simple moral lessons as guided by the hostess and recurring characters. One of those recurring characters was Mr. Do Bee, an oversized bumblebee who helped teach the moral lessons ("Do Bee a good sport when you lose"). The end always featured the hostess using her "Magic Mirror" to help her greet the show's young audience ("I see Brian and Mindy; oh, there's Jill and Donald," etc.) Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

I was a Romper Room kid!
1 December 2006 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Yes, back in 1985, I was selected by Miss Molly herself to be on Romper Room which filmed in Secaucus, New Jersey. I was only 4 years old, and I remember watching the show all the time. Miss Molly was a genuine sweetheart, and displayed incredible patience with some of the brattier kids on the show. I still have my one and only appearance recorded on VHS. Such a pity that most of the episodes are long gone. Will we never see Romper Room on DVD?

Romper Room and Friends represents the truly clean-cut children's programming that I remember from my toddler days. It also made little kids stars in their preschools and kindergarten classes everywhere. Far better than the blabbering nonsense we see on The Wiggles and Blues Clues of today.
