Please Please Bring Pinwheel Back To Television!
18 June 2004 | by (Huxley,Iowa) – See all my reviews

Please ,please bring Pinwheel back to television!I remember when Nickelodean's Pinwheel was cancelled,it was a bad day for children's television programming.My children grew up watching Nickelodean's Pinwheel.Guess what,I watched this show with my children too.I loved this show as much as my children did.I will never forget the first time that I saw this show one day in the early days of cable. I was fascinated with it.I had never seen programming like that for children.All of the different characters and stories were a true surprise and delight.This programming was on for eight hours a day.If I had known that they were never going to show this programming again,I would have found a way to videotape all of the programming.Nickelodean's programming for children is now not what it was.I do not understand why they will not revise this incredible show.I hope that Nickelodean will read this, and all of the other reviews, and then put this show back on.I give this show a 10, a perfect score.
