3-2-1 Contact was an american science educational television show which aired on PBS from 1979 to 1992. The series teaches kids and teens about scientific principles and their applications. But not only that there was a segment called The Bloodhound Gang which tells the adventures of 3 young but fearless mystery solvers that worked at the Bloodhound Detective Agency who can solve the clues and capture the crooks by using the knowledge of science. The 3-2-1 Contact got it's name from the words used to countdown for either a rocketship launch or a space shuttle launch. The Children's Television Workshop now Sesame Workshop created this series to separate their 2 early successful shows for the little kids and babies Sesame Street and The Electric Company, and make it more for the older kids and younger teens.

      As a kid, I had a huge crush on 'Lisa' from the first cast.

      smill0313 - MathMan ruled, but you're thinking of Square 1 TV - an equally great PBS show in its own right!

              IF I remember right, this show had a catchy opening song? At least catchy to me when I was five.

                TV just is not the same...no quality kids shows on now. *sigh*

                      Never really watched this (information overload), unless they showed it in class after lunch. The theme song is pretty epic IMO.

                        I really miss this show it made learning about math and science fun. I wish they would bring it back in reruns or at least put it on DVD. The bloodhound gang was cool.

                                I remember watching 321 contact scared as ALL heck when 'The Case of the Cackling Ghost' espisode came on. It was PARTIALLY okay because my 110 lb. Giant Schnauzer named Sam was there to protect me. I'm glad that some shows that we as kids watched are on dvd like the Muppet Show etc, because they were cool to watch then and now that I have my own children I'd love them to learn some things and pass it on. There are some good lessons on those old shows. The closest you can find now is Noggin which isn't too bad, but there need to be some more substance to tv. My kids are more interested in the pc because there is not only tv shows but games to boot.

                                  My favorite episode would be the recycling one because 13 years ago we had an assembly in our school called "Earth Day." we watch this episode of 321 contact that was about our enviorment and the recyling and trash. But hey we are in a global warming how we are going to stop this? I hope they release this on DVD so I can see this one again.

                                    I remember this show. It is one of my fondest memories of growing up. I remember getting home from school and my Mom would let us watch TV for about an hour, this is one of the shows I would watch. I really enjoyed it and it was educational too! I also watched another show right after it about some kids and an old man who went out on a fishing boat. It was also on PBS, but I can't remember the name. If anybody knows the name I would appreciate it.

                                          14 years, 6 months ago
                                          I miss this show. I was more into the earlier episodes with Mark, Trini, and Lisa though. One of my favorite episodes was when Trini was at a KISS concert. Anyone remember that one? I always had a major crush on Trini and Lisa. The Bloodhound Gang was pretty cool too. I remember there was one episode of that about a "cackling ghost" that involved moths. That was a creepy episode, but I loved it! :-) Remember when a major makeup job was done on Mark turning him into an old man? That and there was a time when Mark was making a cake and accidentally made green frosting or something... Because of Trini, since I was a kid, I've always known the colors of the rainbow by heart because of how she taught the "ROY G. BIV" trick. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. I'd love to see these shows again. Unfortunately, I was late getting a Dish. Then Noggin started to show less and less of it till they completely removed it. Just like they did with The Electric Company and Sesame Street Unpaved. Let's hope 3*2*1 Contact makes it to DVD! Not only for me to relive all the great memories, but also to show my little girl what Daddy used to watch back when he was little. ;-)
                                            14 years, 7 months ago
                                            I tried to never miss an episode of this when I was a kid
                                              14 years, 9 months ago
                                              Boy did I have a crush on Mark and Miguel! I also loved the dripping water...odd. I watched the show every damn day. Every Friday they had the Bloodhound Gang. My favorite series was "the Tropics." I also wanted Trini's hair and body and Lisa's smile and eyes. I was such a little weirdo.
                                                14 years, 10 months ago
                                                the dripping water used to fixate me...
                                                  14 years, 10 months ago
                                                  the bloodhound gang was about the main reason i watched it. i truly believe CSI traces it's origin back to 321 Contact and the Bloodhound Gang.
                                                    14 years, 10 months ago
                                                    I remember watching this show in the 80s. I remember once in awhile in science classes theyd show us these too. I used to love this show. The intro is so catchy. I remember The Blood Houd Gang aswell.
                                                      14 years, 10 months ago
                                                      when iwas in grade school we used to watch the reruns for our science hour. lol!!
                                                        14 years, 10 months ago
                                                        SharonTheJedi, I know EXACTLY what u r talking about, w/ "The Bloodhound Gang" I remember it VIVIDLY
                                                          15 years ago
                                                          I remember this show and the beginning especially the baby being kissed and the frog. Wasn't there a short at the end that they played sometimes called "The Bloodhound Gang"? The song was "Where ever theres trouble, we're there on the double. We're the Blood Hound Gang". Anyone remember that?
                                                            15 years, 1 month ago
                                                            I remember a slightly different title. They still had some of the scenes, but the song was a little different.

                                                            I remember being creeped out by that frog when I was little.
