Storyline

"The Most Important Person" was a series of 66 short subjects for children that related, through animation, live-action, and music, important topics in a youngster's life. The subjects in this series dealt with, for example, dental health, friendship, trying new things, making mistakes, and caring for others. There was a group of animated children that was regularly featured, among them Mike, a boy who always wore a baseball cap; Cindy, a red-haired girl (also called Nancy in a few of the shorts); Nicola, an African-American girl who wore beaded pigtails; and Pablo, a Mexican boy. There was also Fumble, a green, ostrich-like bird; Hairy, a short, furry caveman-like creature; and Bird, who talked fast and was very excited. Written by William Bennett Warfield

Trivia

These shorts were originally shown as interstitial segments on "Captain Kangaroo," introduced by the Captain (Bob Keeshan) and members of his cast. Four years later, Viacom (and, 19 years after that, Paramount Television) syndicated the shorts to local stations, running either as half-hour editions made up of five shorts, or as interstitial segments of locally-produced children's programs (some PBS affiliates even ran "The Most Important Person" as short subjects between weekday children's shows).

Ohhhh the memories
5 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The little jingle has been in my head for 30+ years along with that green "turkey" character. All I could remember was the first line of the opening song, the green character, and the animation at the end when the hairy thing slides down the rope and the other characters are at the bottom of the credits. Now that I have a young child, I was inspired to see what I could find on the Internet. Not much.

I was pleased to see some comments here on IMDb and thrilled when I found 3 episodes on somebody's web site. The dejavu was nearly overwhelming when the clip started to play. The images in the opening sequence came to me like some LSD flash-back. Wow! Further research only turned up a single 16mm reel of one episode on ebay (I think I'll buy it).

These were such positive and happy children's shorts. I wish we had more of this on TV today.
