One of the Last Memorable New York Kids Shows
12 June 2013 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

In January 1972, WCBS-TV replaced their long-running Sunday morning kids show Around the Corner with a show that also aired on Saturdays titled The Patchwork Family. The show was hosted by Carol Corbett, who I remember from the mid 60s when she hosted a lunchtime show on Channel 11. She had a puppet sidekick named Rags, who was voiced and operated by Cary Antebi. He also handled the puppets Flap and Sherlock on another successful kids show The Magic Garden.

Getting to the show, it was a nice mix of entertainment and education. The were exercise and musical segments as well as a rebus puzzle. Unfortunately, I didn't see a lot of episodes because I moved that summer from New Jersey to Minnesota but I also remember an instrumental in one of the episodes that was also used on the Jack Barry game show Hollywood's Talking as well as in commercials.

The Patchwork Family was one of the last memorable New York kids shows before most of them left the airwaves in the late 70s and 80s. Interesting note, after both Patchwork Family and Magic Garden left TV, Antebi dropped out of show business and became a rabbi.

I'll always remember the theme song that ended with this line: "It's certified and stated, That everyone's related in The Patchwork Family."
