PicturePages was a short (10-15 minutes, I think) program in which Bill Cosby helped kids with activities in an activity book. You could buy the activity book and play along.

Don't forget Bill's partner in crime...
28 November 2004 | by (Potsdam, New York) – See all my reviews

Bill Cosby may have been the lone human actor in this series of shorts, but he was faithfully accompanied by his magic pen named "Ichabod Crane" which made music when Bill Cosby wrote with it. (Many-a-friend I know longed to have that wonderful pen!)

I believe that these "Picture Pages" segments were strategically programed to fit into regular time slots during the program "Pinwheel". Doing so provided an opportunity to keep viewers (presumably children) actively involved at regular intervals while watching the longer program.

There was a corresponding workbook for "Picture Pages" which could be purchased. A child watching the show could flip to the appropriate page in the workbook for that day and participate in real time with the activity Bill Cosby was doing.
