This is the most amazing movie about where babies come from. It answers all the questions in a direct way without being patronizing. After MANY years, I still remember so many parts of the show. I have been looking for this on VHS for years. Yeah - DVD! Peter is so anxious about having a baby in the house, he can't seem to get all the facts straight! He has all these amazing ideas of where a baby comes from. I still have the baby being put together in a fast food setting scene in my head. When he as the courage to ask the Dr. to explain everything to him (The Dr. was the Dr. Spock of the 70's), it all became so clear. Most of the after school specials hold a special place in my heart and memory, but this one is probably the best and will out last all the others. Its so timeless. I am so happy that this will be released! I can't wait to show it to my kids!
