I loved Wonderama
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Truly, one of my fondest childhood TV memories. I remember getting up and doing the "Exercise" song, and especially the dance contests. I remember Bob would ask the winner "whats your favorite dance", and the kids would always say "the four corners" with their eastern accents ( I was from Los Angeles)....anyway, what a great show. I teach dancing to adults, and whenever I am with a group around my age, I will always ask if they used to watch Wonderama, And then the stories begin. Its so funny to hear what each individual remembers. We all loved the show, thats for sure.

Sorry to hear about the passing of Bob McAllister. Thanks for the memories. Todd Van Dorn Long Beach Ca.
