    I loooved Square One. I remember the music videos (such as Mathematics of Love, Burger Pattern by The Fat Boys, Tessellation, Angle Dance). I didn't really know anything about music at the time, and I think that's why they really stuck with me.

    They had skits to parody old TV shows. There's one from the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy and Ethel are in the candy factory and they can't keep up with the conveyor belt. In the Square One version, Lucy gets stuck and goes through the shrinkwrap machine. She comes out all wrapped in plastic. I remember seeing that one day when I was home sick and that shot just made me feel ten times worse.

      I loved watching PBS Kids shows like Mister Rogers Neighborhood, Reading Rainbow, Big Comfy Couch, Wishbone, and Arthur when I was in my preschool years. So many of us RJers are born in different eras, and the programming that we're used to differs with everyone.

      PBS Kids programming these days still have educational worth, but the morals and lessons that PBS Kids series back when I was growing up were stronger. If only we could revive the good vintage PBS Kids series for the newer generation of kids, they don't know what they're missing.

          Does anyone remember a TV show on PBS late 80's or early 90's, it came on around the time of Reading Rainbow because I remember watching it right befor or right after, anyways it was sort of like Zoobilee Zoo, it had characters dressed up like animals but not really in full costume. Like the show CATS on Broadway. I remember a cat and an owl maybe. Not sure if they spoke themselves or there was narrator and they just acted out their scenes. Gosh wish I could remember more! Driving me crazy! Maybe it was apart of another show like a segment, not a show on it's own? Maybe I'm not crazy and someone else remembers this!

            Other good PBS Shows that I remember was John Robbins who would make illustrations of stories while telling them and there was also Paul M. Lally who did the same thing.

            Too bad there aren't many people like that on PBS...and I wish they'd have more of these vids on youtube...and I also wish Elmo didn't have to ruin Sesame Street.

                Doesn't matter if you had cable or not.

                I'm sure many who it have it might of still watched PBS as well.

                Also anyone recall ZOOM Via Alegre and Carrascolendas?

                  Where do I begin? Everywhere!

                  Barney & Friends
                  Sesame Street
                  Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood
                  Lamb Chop's Play Along
                  The Puzzle Place
                  Kidsongs
                  Wishbone
                  Storytime
                  Reading Rainbow
                  Shining Time Station
                  Arthur
                  Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego
                  Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego
                  The Big Comfy Couch
                  The Magic School Bus
                  Bill Nye the Science Guy
                  Teletubbies


                  In the late 1990s there was also
                  Zoom (1999 version)
                  Zoboomafoo
                  Charlie Horse's Music Pizza
                  The Noddy Shop
                  Between the Lions

                  While the shows on PBS Kids today are educational, they have no entertainment factor to them and most kids would realize-no doubt-that they are learning something from watching them. The shows also don't teach morals like the older shows did since most shows have no storyline.

                    What was that 15-minute show where they showed a guy cleaning the front of the store at the beginning?

                    And what ever happened to John Robbins...is he still around?

                      Hm, only shows I can think of on PBS that I watched (as an actual kid) are:

                      Reading Rainbow
                      Sesame Street
                      Mr. Rogers Neighborhood
                      Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego (I was in middle school)
                      Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego
                      Lamb Chop's Play Along
                      Wishbone (middle school prob)


                      Other shows I've watched, but was actually outside of the age demographic:

                      Arthur (started when I was in high school)
                      Between the Lions (my younger cousin watched it; would watch while babysitting; she's 17 now, though)
                      Zoom 1999 version (same as above)
                      The Big Comfy Couch (same as above)
                      The Magic School Bus (I was in middle school, but liked this show)
                      Kidsongs (high school. lol)

                        A couple mentioned the 1999 version of ZOOM.

                        I watched the original 70's version though might of been a bit young for the target age and don't remember any particular epiosdes.

                        I read that on the old ZOOM there was an episode that dealt with the passing of a Dr. Keith Carlson who was either a consultant and or producer.

                        Too bad the never reran any of the old shows, but this one would of been interesting to have seen considering Sesame Street did the same thing with Mr. Hooper in the 80's.

                              ^ Next you'll say that you miss watching Barney and Friends. Or is that too revealing?

                                Your local PBS station may show reruns of Wishbone. My station WVIZ from Cleveland/Akron does earl in the morning on weekends.

                                      I always remember them airing weird CGI clips in about 1998 (they might have been from The Mind's Eye). The only ones I remember are one about a badly animated CGI dog in a junkyard set to a song, and one involving a tiger jumping on a rotating block. I wish I knew what exactly they were called.
