Excellent religious show aimed at children
16 November 2009 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

This 15 minute syndicated show, sponsored by The National Lutheran Council (forerunner of today's Evangelical Lutheran Church in America), ran on Sunday mornings from 1960 to 1964. The show was targeted to children and had a religious theme. It opened with a short song sung by James Stewart (no relation to actor Jimmy Stewart), accompanied by fireworks graphics.

There was nothing fancy about the show, nor was anything fancy needed. The set, graphics and music were simple, and the props consisted of a few hand puppets, the most prominent being Reggie the Rhinoceros and Digby the Duck. Mr. Stewart was the main player in every episode, accompanied by other actors on occasion. Each show consisted of a simple storyline, acted out with the help of the puppets, and each story taught moral values to the kids. Stewart and company taught these values elegantly, without talking down to the kids. As a result, the show's audience also had a large number of adult viewers.

At the end of most episodes was a short mini-sermon narrated by a spokesman for the NLC.

There's little doubt that Light Time helped guide many children of the early sixties along the proper path.
