Crazy Credits

The end of the credits features a "Arnold Shapiro Productions" bumper that has a comical "Mr. Shapiro, step out of the car please" voice over, as if he is being arrested. See more »

Alternate Versions

What a great show
17 May 2005 | by poissonneonSee all my reviews

I was little when I used to watch this show, probably under 5 years old. I don't remember William Shatner, but I do remember certain episodes: the one where a boy locked himself in the trunk of a car, and one where a child licked a tray of ice cubes and got his/her tongue stuck to it. The ice cube one has always stuck in my memory, and any time after I saw that episode and got my tongue stuck on a Popsicle, I knew how to get it unstuck without freaking out.

This show showed real stories and helped families learn what to do in certain situations. It was both entertaining and educational - a great combination.
