Re: “"All Aboard with Mr. Be"

OMG!!! I tried so hard to find someone ... anyone with copies of this show for my son. I was born in 1962 ... and this was my favorite childhood show ... I would stay glued to the TV whenever Mr. Be was on! (Anyone remember how to PRONOUNCE Ponce De Lion's name?)

My son is now 7 ... not sure he would appreciate it as much as a few years back ... but I would still LOVE to see these shows again.

And I remember the episode with the monkey (although I didn't know what was REALLY going on there!). And the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff ... funny how those little "dings" spark memories ...

Re: “Does Anyone Remember This TV Show?

Sounds like "Talent Showcase." I appeared on it several times (oh to be in third grade and the excitement that followed on Monday morning after appearing on Talent Showcase on Saturday!). They had a huge variety of talent -- everything from music, dancing, magic, puppets -- everything. There was also "Magicland" with Dick Williams. Occasionally, he would let kids perform or do things on the air from assisting to performing. He also used puppets on the show ...
