The Magic Door, 7 March 2006
Author: don-kosin from United States

I certainly do remember this show. Tiny Tov lived in an Acorn, and flew on a feather, and chanted "a room zoom zoom a room zoom zoom, gily gily gily gily gily asa sah, come through this magic door with me, come through this door and wondrous things you'll see." Then they had old testament stories, and a character named Booby Beaver! I was (and am) Catholic, and enjoyed it though it was clearly directed at Jewish kids. I think it was on Sunday morning. I remember a Moses puppet and an Aaron puppet. It clearly was a local show in Chicago, but I am not sure what station it was on. I am surprised to see that it ran for 20 years, from 1962 to 1982, from before I started Kindergarten in 1963 to when I was a second year law student! Anyone else remember any more details?
