Well, for the third time today, I'm back with some questions about old shows I remember growing up to.

First of all, I remember a weird live-action Winnie the Pooh series. It had the absolute CREEPIEST looking narrator ever, and he would chronicle the various goings-on in the Hundred Acre Wood. The characters, however, were just people in giant suits (ie. Godzilla, Big Bird) and the eyes/mouths/head wouldn't move, just the limbs really. I'm pretty sure it aired on The Family Channel (Canada), and I remember it to be the only cartoon that scared the livin' bejeebus out of me. Besides "The Storyteller".

Then, there's this one I remember less than vaguely, about a similar style "live action with suits" kids show, around the same time period, maybe even the same channel. All I know for sure is that it took place in a circus. That's all I remember.

If anyone has absolutely ANY information about these, pleasssssse let me know.

Thank you once again :) ,
Mason.

    NEVERMIND! :D Wow, I killed two birds with one stone. I Googled some stuff and found the early 80s (not early 90s) kid's show "Welcome to Pooh Corner". That scary narrator is named Laurie Hill, and upon seeing a picture, he's not exactly as creepy as I remember it. The characters were people in motionless suits, and everything was filmed in front of a blue screen (ie. the weatherman on your local news station.) Then it provided a link to a similar show filmed in a similar manner, "Dumbo's Circus". And it's the one I thought of! Wow. The Interweb is shore an interesting place, idn't it?

      Wow I had forgotting all about "Welcome to Pooh Corner". I used to love that show. I liked Dumbos Circus too, but not as much.
