Being a youth in Boston in the early 70's, I watched a lot of Jabberwocky. From the acid-induced, animated opening sequence to the "surprise box" finale, the show cleverly held children's attention while teaching common precepts and scientific phenomena. The lean cast consisted of Tucker Smallwood and JoBeth Williams and the puppet, Dirty Frank--puppeteer-ed by Peter Johnson who also made a few appearances. Smallwood and Williams would alternate episodes with Carl Thoma and Trina Sopko. Just once I was hoping that the two pairs would appear together on a single episode! Bob Prosky also lent his talent as the jack-of-all-trades, Mr. Buchanan. I often wonder whatever became of Carl Thoma. Unlike Tucker Smallwood, Thoma essentially faded immediately following Jabberwocky.
