Why aren't ALL the educational cartoons from the mid-70s available on DVD yet?
I believe this cartoon was part of a government initiative to bring more educational programming to TV -- the same initiative that gave us "School House Rock", Captain O.G. Readmore ('a readin' kinda cat') and a cartoon about the founding fathers (may have been called "Spirit of '76, but I can't remember for certain).
All of these aired on ABC from the early to mid-70s.
This cartoon in particular taught about bodily functions and the importance of nutrition, etc.
It also gave us "Timer" (voiced by HR Pufnstuf, Lennie Weinrib), who also apperaed in several follow-up intersticials on ABC Saturday mornings that taught us how to make "Wagon Wheels" and "Sunshine on a Stick."
"Since 6 o'clock last night you haven't eaten a bite. C'mon I'll show you why that's not the way for a growing boy(?) to start a busy day...."
RELEASE THESE PROGRAMS NOW! (For the sake of the children)
