This was a staple of my childhood. Probably I would find it corny and preachy if I saw the programs today but I remember total immersion in the stories Pat started telling, with drawings, on each program. There was a live audience and my younger sister actually went to a filming. but was very disappointed to find out that only a small part of the audience was selected to sit in the televised area, the rest sat in a larger area. I'm not sure if only the televised children were given Arnold cookies - early product placement. I associate this program with the many public interest messages about safety ("Jenny was only Jaywalking") and racial acceptance ("You get Good Milk From a Brown Cow, the Color of the Cow Doesn't Matter Anyhow") on this network.
