Hi guys! I've been searching for this kids program which I THINK its called 'Take Off', but maybe I got the title wrongly because I simply cannot find any information regarding it anywhere! Well, the theme song's title is 'Take Off' i think coz it ends with these 2 words.
so anyway, the show is like this. Its about these group of young adolesence that go around exploring......one episode was about optical illusions, another episode was in a museum, other episodes travel through time.........and in every episode, there will be a segment where this guy writes a detective story and narrates it in his mind, which is acted out by him, but his friends don't know about this writing thing of his.....
One of the cast was a guy in wheelchair.
one episode dealt with the issue of racism by travelling back into the past.
Another episode had beethoven inside......one of the characters communicated to Beethoven via tapping the keyboard.
Yet another episode, the kids were exploring a circus.
And, the key icon of this show was this cartoon green ailen-like animal.
This show was half live action, half animated (with cartoons), and it was very educational
I think it dealt alot with imagination also....imagining various things which i can't remember now.
Does anyone know anything about this show? sorry for the vague descriptions but its all I can remember, and it was one of my most favourite kids show.....it was broadcasted on my tv station during the mid 1990s.
Yeah I remember that show. I was reminded of it today; I went to this art exhibition that was so far out I felt like someone in a kids story who goes into some magic realm. Take Off was all abut stuff like that. I grew up in Ireland and they used to show it during the day so if I was sick and couldn't go to school I watched it. I've mentioned it a few times to people but no one seems to remember it. As far as I remember, some of the episodes were quite wacky and used to freak me out a little. If I find a clip or something online I'll post it here. It's nice to see that someone else remembers this show;I wasn't sure if I was getting the title right.
ahhhhh!! yay finally someone remembersssssss! =D I'm not sure about the title too.......so its really Take Off??? or Take Up....at least that was the name of the theme song.....still can remember how it went.......and no its not "Lift Off', I just checked.
i really want to find clips of that show......i really loved it, lol
Nope it's not lift off. There weren't any puppets. It was always just about this bunch of kids that did random yet educational things in wierd fantasy worlds. This is still driving me crazy and I still have the tune stuck in my head. ANYONE??????
