I remember a show I watched occasionally as a kid. I think it was Romper Room. The lady had a "magic mirror" and I remember sitting there waiting for her to say "I see Twinkle Toes" (Not my real name. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. ).

I probably saw Schoolhouse Rock, but vaguely remember it. Wasn't there also something called Fraggle Rock? The things I mainly watched as a kid were the Sid & Marty Croft shows like Lidsville, H.R. Puff 'n' Stuff, Sigmond the Sea Monster, The Bugaloos. But in the 80's, as an adult, I LOVED PeeWee's Playhouse! Yeah ... I'd tell people I watched it with my young son (who is almost 30 now!), but in reality, I was watching it for ME! Just because I loved (and still do!) PeeWee and the show had so many innuendos that kids wouldn't get, but adults would.

To this day I often recall the songs if I'm trying to multiply things. I also learned the preamble with this.

These were great and thought they should have been shown in schools.
