Wonderful Kids Show
9 August 2005 | by michelle-264See all my reviews

I loved this program as a child. It made you believe you could fly or that it would be nice to fly. I must have watched reruns since it came out in 1970. I probably watched it in 1974 or 75. They had great little songs and they were British, which was interesting in itself for me. I loved the girl's hairdo and wanted mine just like that. These old shows should be brought back. I think they were great for kids. I would love to sit and watch this myself. Many of the kids shows should be brought back just like there are reruns for the older sitcoms on TVLand or Nick at Nite. Romper room was another great show during this time. I had no idea that Sid and Marty Kroft produced the Bugaloos.
