Another great show, but forgotten
9 June 2005 | by (In a Chair in my room) – See all my reviews

for 12 years we had lots of entertainment, singing, and happiness from that crazy guy who lived on a island, in a forest. i think he lived on an island, but i'm not sure.

The show starts with the legendary Fred penner, walking through a forest, with very memorable guitar music playing. he climbs through a log into his home, which happens to be a patch of grass in the forest, along with a small shack. he talks and sings in there, entertaining children with everything he knows. then of course, there's puppets, which keep the show happy. and of course, word bird is a favorite, but his call is depressing. he sounds sad every time he comes flying in, but in other words, the show is good.

The reality of this show is gone. i mean, the guy must get crazy after not seeing a human on an island somewhere. and eventually, word bird must annoy him to the point he wants to blow the bird's head off. (and of course, how do the puppets get to the island? it's not like they take the boat everyday.) and of course, Fred penner jumps around the island in the end, so he must be going bonkers in some sort of way.

but this show is forgotten. only Canadian kids remember him now. and i remember him as 10 / 10. so that's what i rank this. 10 / 10
