Tiny Tov and The Feather Ship
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think "Booby Beaver" was supposed to be "Bubi Beaver," but kinda came out Booby after awhile. (Bubi is Yiddish a term of endearment.) I loved The Magic Door--and I'm not Jewish either. First, there was nothing else on TV for kids on Sunday morning in 1964--unless you could pull in Channel 4 from Milwaukee with its reruns of Davey and Goliath.

Tiny Tov flew back to the days of the Old Testament(Sp?)in the Feather Ship. There were crude pre-CG effects. He sat inside a bump on the quill end of the feather and would sometimes look over his shoulder to chat with us while working the controls. The puppets were simple plaster head and cloth body arrangements. No moving mouths or eyes. The show was produced by the Jewish Federation of Chicago, I think. The director/producer was a man named Henry Mamet. He was married to my third grade teacher Mrs. Mamet. I've often wondered if they were related to the play-write David Mamet. That's what I remember about The Magic Door.
