Cast overview:
Bill Jackson ...


An extremely unusual and well-liked children's show starring Bill Jackson of "Clown Alley" fame. Each show was devoted to a "life lesson", like learning about responsibility, fire safety, etc. Jackson would also display his considerable artistic talents, in particular during the segment where he would go find a lump of clay named "Blob" (an actual vocal character who mostly made strange mumbling noises) and shape him into something.

GREAT memories
28 June 2003 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show with my dad as a small child. The best memories I have from it are of Bill Jackson working with a blob of clay named, of course, blob. "Blob" made weird guttural and whiny noises as Jackson shaped him into whatever he would become that day.

There were also other characters, all of them puppets. The show was a lot like Mr. Roger's "Land of Make-Believe" show segments, except that the entire show was like that and it was a lot sillier. The title character Mr. Gigglesnort was an old ships captain who thought the hotel was a ship that he steered around. Another main character was "Dirty Dragon" who not only provided the heat for the hotel, but was also the mailman.

Very clever, very creative, and lots of fun for kids.
