A lost piece of the Nickeleon Golden Era!, 23 March 2007
Author: emasterslake from United States

I remembered watching this show a lot way back in the mid 90s. When Nickeleon still had everything you'd want it to have. Including great cartoons, game shows, and memorable teen shows. Out of the bunch was Wienerville.

A staged city where puppets are citizens and were all performed by Marc Wiener. Also the host of the show who interacts with the puppets who are part of the show. Including Mayor Dottie, Boney the Dinosaur, Chef Pops, Louie, & good olé' bad mouth Socko. Throughout the performances we'd find Marc and the puppets do all sorts of bizarre actives with the performed audiences. Including games, jokes, assistance, and being part of the show. Plus during the middle of the show, they'd get a large portable TV or elevator(don't remember what it looked like) out and show an old school cartoon like "Mr. Magoo", "Batfink" of the original "Chipmunks".

I loved this TV show so much. It was a real drag that it ended along with several other ones. It's been a decade since the last time I've seen. And this is something that you'll never see again on Nickeloen. And the odds for a DVD release on the show are as slim as a DVD release for the "What Would You Do" show. The precise memories still remain in my mind. And will never forget it. But hopefully one day I'll be able to see it once more, for old time sakes.
