Kids Are People Too...Wokka Dooh Wokka Dooh!
30 January 2004 | by (New York,NY) – See all my reviews

I was a very small child when WONDERAMA was on but I think the reason I remember as much of it as I do is because MY FATHER liked the show. You know how when your a little kid your parents will walk into the room and say "Oh what is that garbage your watching?" My father actually got some kind of GLEE when he'd see that "Hey,WONDERAMA is on!" I guess WONDERAMA was the last show of its kind that most resembled the childrens shows of my fathers time. I remember the audience of kids running around trying to win prizes and having dance contests and stuff. In retrospect it was sort of like a kiddie version of LETS MAKE A DEAL. the kids would run around like idiota and wind up winning....a necklace made of bagels...or something or other. I remember the song "Kids Are People...Kids Are PEOPle...Kids are People Too....They're really really people too! Wocka dooh, wokka dooh!" I also remember...because at 70 years of age my Dad STILL sings it..." Does anybody here have an aardvarrk? Does anybody here have an aardvark? Theres a boy over here with a left and right ear but NOBODY here has an aardvark". It all seems sort of corny now but when I see the drek like POKEMON that kids have to watch on the weekend mornings now it makes me long for WONDERAMA, MAGIC GARDEN, ROMPER ROOM.....)
