I've racked my mind and searched the Internet to find the name of this much loved and remembered program. I wish I could still find this show on tape. As a kid, it was something to look forward to, entertaining and educational, in those days a rarity. I have fond memories of many episodes, but a favorite was "Hemo, the Magnificent." As a young teacher I ordered that film to show to my students. What fun! Wish we could see it again!!!! There was one episode about a little boy who couldn't speak, but had a remarkable link with animals. In the end, they taught him to speak and he lost his connection to the animals. It made me sad. I never forgot that episode. Thanks for the show and the fond memories!
