cool show
15 April 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This was a cool show. I use to watch it all the time when I was younger. It's a really good show for children. The puppets were neat too. It They need to make more shows like this for children. If you ever see a rerun of this show I recommend your kids watching this show. It's a great show for kids.
