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>

My favorite show growing up!
19 March 2003 | by (Watertown, MA) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1981, so I'm a Gen-Y-er. I grew up watching "Romper Room" with Miss Molly on Channel 9 in New York. It was probably my favorite show as a child...I always wanted to be one of the kids on it, but when my mom called to get me in there was a two year waiting list. Oh well.

Anyway, it really was a great show, and I'm angry that my children will never get a chance to watch it. There were lots of great songs like "Do Bee Dancin'" and some very cool puppets like UpUp, Kimball, and Granny Cat.

Very cool stuff...if you can get some videos from eBay or anything, I'd recommend it. And Miss Molly, if you read this -- I was one of your biggest fans ;-)
