    If anyone could help me with this I will be greatly appreciative (and surprised, as I have posted on 3 other forums and gotten no answer).

    It was a show, or miniseries maybe, that most likely came on Nickelodeon or HBO in the early 80's. All I remember from it is a girl (all live action) and an adult male, who is a magician. At one point the song "Do You Believe in Magic" comes on.

    There are also monsters under her bed or through her mirrors, and I think all of the craziness ensues only when her parents are out of the room. In other words, it is imaginative.

    Any help would be so awesome. Thanks.

          before howie mandel was ever mentioned he had been considered.... it might have been him, and if not it was an actor who looked like him. it pre-dates my memory bank, which would lead to me to believe it was @85-87, +- 2 yrs.

          the thing that sucks is the fact that i can't even remember if it was a series or movie. i just remember the concept was about magic and fantasy-land, between the girl and the magician. the parent(s) were unaware of the situations, as far as i can remember. oh well, thank you very much for the help.

            although i did enjoy "my pet monster," the one i am trying to remember was live action. sorry, i should have clarified that in the beginning.

                    If it's the Labrynth you're thinking of than it was David Bowie not Howie Mandel
