Alan Crofoot was the programmes host, introducing four parts in each episode. In the first part (Teletune) he narrated a fantasy story. In the second part (Port of Call) he presented films about children and events in other countries. The third part (Bag of Tricks) featured magic that was performed by Crofoot himself. And in the fourth part (Animal Farm) he told stories, that included characters such as Rupert the cat, Bessie the bunny and Kookie the kitten, all in a miniature farm/barnyard setting. Written by
I stumbled upon a program called Cartoon Classic, on the Bridges TV Channel, and saw several episodes of Mr Piper. As a child of the 60's I found the show fascinating, and enjoy watching them. It's a shame that it never aired in the United States when it ran. I think it would have been a hit. Shame he ended his life early. Rest in peace Mr. Piper. The Cartoon Classic show can be seen Tuesday and Thursday at 10am, and again at 3pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 12pm. They show cartoons from the 30's to the 60's. They show cartoons such as some of the very first Popeye cartoons, Harvey Toons (The Talking Magpies, Little Audrey, Little Lu Lu, Baby Huey, etc), Betty Boop, the old MGM cartoons, that are absolutely hilarious. There were cartoon that I had not seen in over forty years. The show is a blast to watch.
