The only morning show for Northwest kids
6 March 2008 | by (Bremerton, Washington) – See all my reviews

This was the quintessential morning kids show in the Pacific Northwest. If you were a Northwest child of the 60's or 70's you watched J.P. Patches before you went to school. From the opening strains of Vivaldi's Spring to the personalized birthday greetings on his ICU2TV to his rapport with Gertrude, we loved every minute of this wonderful show. It was so personal, so lighthearted, so human, so NORTHWEST, that it defined what it was to be a local. In addition to the supporting cast there were always interesting guests. I remember seeing Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" for the first time here. Local celebrities sometimes appeared on the show. The show had such local appeal that the contest to name the new local football team was held on it (the winner was 'Seahawks'). J.P. still makes appearances at local events and fund raisers, and on the local PBS station. It says something that, while the show has been off the air for 25 years, J.P. Patches is still as popular now as he ever was. I'm proud to be a Patches Pal!
