The "Pinwheel" Appreciation Thread

Hi. This is an appreciation thread for the children's puppet show Pinwheel, which ran from 1979-1989 on Nickelodeon in the USA. If you don't know what Pinwheel is, then you probably don't belong here.

My favorite characters were Plus and Minus.

Share your memories here!

Nope, I remember all that stuff too

"Today's Special" - wasn't that the name of the dancing manequinn show, and it had a mouse (Muffy ) that had to rhyme everything - I always found that mouse annoying

It reminded me of the cable tv version of Sesame Street, a human/puppet variety show of sorts. There was even an Oscar the Grouch equivalent, some mean puppet by the name of Ebenezer, based loosely on Scrooge I presume. Some of the animated segments that went along with it would remind me today of the backdrop video show at Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic and Allman Brothers concerts. I wonder if the drug culture was involved?

OMG -- "Turkey TV"!!!!! Lots of little comedy clips, short skits & hilarious cartoons (they were German, weren't they?).
I LOVED that stuff!!! YCDTOTV: Moose, Lisa, Alistair, Kevin Ivanovich Rasputin Kubachesky (spelling???), Ross, etc etc etc. Saying "I don't know" and getting slimed, the daily specials at the diner - what was it called? - things like "Rat-Tat-Taily" (instead of ratatouille).

All I can say is that since I lived in a rural area that wouldn't see cable TV for another 5 years: Thank God for satellite television!! (And yes, my dad had the huge 15ft satellite dish planted in concrete in the backyard -- we were high-tech rednecks before such a definition even existed! )
