I found the Magic Door on DVD; it's via Cragslist. $8 buys you a Walter E Smith sponsored "Magic Door" & "Kukla, Fran & Ollie" DVD. The link is: http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/emd/509105184.html
I used to watch it as well and still have that crazy song (which means nothing to me--I'm Catholic) in my head at age 42. We would watch it because, like the other poster said, there was nothing on besides Bert Weinman Ford commercials and The Cisco Kid on Sunday mornings. The pseudo CGI little man appealed to every kid, and it is proof that good entertainment is good entertainment, regardless of the roots of the subject.
Chicago TV had a lot of classic stuff to watch, and now as an adult working outside of the Chicago area I often tell people stories about some of the crazy traditional shows. "Hardrock, Coco & Joe" & "Frosty the Snowman" (the old black and white version) were terrific to watch...
