Pinwheel Pinwheel Spinning around. Look at my pinwheel and see what I found.

I can't remember much of this show, because I Was so young when it was on, but I do remember loving it. Nick needs to wake up and remember what made the network and rerun this show. The kids today don't know what good programming like this is.
