Storyline

ABC-TV's Saturday morning series hosted by three children (two boys and one girl) with short skits and songs mixed together with cartoons of an educational (e.g. the story of Icarus) and of a purely entertainment nature. The focus was the Curiosity Shop itself, a sort of tame Pee-Wee Herman Playhouse full of puppets, action figures and wild and educational props. Written by Keith Weston <jkweston@email.unc.edu>

Alien Egg Eater???
22 September 2009 | by scottbc236See all my reviews

I loved the show at 9 years old. I not only remember the Onomatopoeia puppet... but I remember a bit of the song too. I also remember a cartoon Alien egg eater.... or something where he had a machine that fed him boiled eggs very quickly that slid down his throat so seemingly easy. I went and boiled me 3 or 4 eggs, cracked them, threw them in the air, and, yes, let them slip WHOLE down my throat (well, as whole as they would go). Yea, stupid. But what good memories! And I remember the little tune that he sang.... at least I think he was the one that sang the tune, but I know a tune that some cartoon character La La La ed on Curiosity Shop. I still hum it to myself to this day. Yea, I loved the puppets.
