Storyline

Children's program that was often franchised rather than syndicated (meaning, local television stations could use their own hostesses in lieu of national hosts if they chose). A typical program featured a group of six to 10 children, ages 4-6, in a variety of games, songs and rhymes and simple moral lessons as guided by the hostess and recurring characters. One of those recurring characters was Mr. Do Bee, an oversized bumblebee who helped teach the moral lessons ("Do Bee a good sport when you lose"). The end always featured the hostess using her "Magic Mirror" to help her greet the show's young audience ("I see Brian and Mindy; oh, there's Jill and Donald," etc.) Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Due to the sheer number of episodes produced, coupled with the high cost of videotape in the early days, very few episodes of the show have survived. According to the book "TV Party", many of the "franchise" producers of the series would erase their tapes after only 24 hours in order to reuse the tapes for new shows. See more »

romper room
12 June 2006 | by wally65See all my reviews

this was a great show i remember watching about 1964-1975 i guess miss sally was the lady then... i liked the singing and 1 episode they had waffle stompers? and i so wanted a pair.... you know basically 2 cups on ropes and you stood on them and marched around? big fun.... :) i do believe she had a story time which was good fun, and maybe even a craft time...i always remember rushing home from kindergarten so that i could watch the show, sometimes we missed it or part of it because the bus went too slow or our farm home lane was real long and my tiny legs couldn't run fast enough so i missed the first 5 minutes or so...these were good times for me in a time when we had family trouble so i have mixed feelings on somedays but mostly good.

great memory...
