Classic Nick Wed. – Adventures in Rainbow Country

Filmed in 1969 Adventures in Rainbow Country was a television series which centered around Nancy Williams (Lois Maxwell), single mother raising her children, Hannah (Susan Conway) and Billy (Stephen Cottier), in hunting and fishing lodge near a lake in rural Northern Ontario. The lodge had been built by Nancy’s husband Frank who disappeared two years earlier when his bush plane went down while he was prospecting for gold.

Only 26 episodes were produced in total but technically the show was never cancelled or axed and was very popular in Canada where it aired on CBC Television in 1970 and 1971. Reruns were later shown on the American children's cable channel Nickelodeon during the early 1980s. It has continued to air in repeats, both in Canada and internationally — in Canada, the show had been seen on DejaView, on Silver Screen Classics, in Australia the series is screened on GEM.

Locations for the show included Whitefish Falls, which is near Espanola, Ontario, Canada as well as Birch Island and Manitoulin Island. To this day The Sudbury and Manitoulin Districts are known as the Rainbow Country which are a tourist attraction as a result of this series. And in August 11-14, 2006 A cast, crew and fan reunion event took place in Whitefish Falls.

Guest Appearances
Actors who made appearances on the show included Gordon Pinsent, Margot Kidder, Len Birman, Percy Rodrigues, Duke Redbird, Jean-Louis Roux, Murray Westgate, Anthony Kramreither and Eric Christmas.

My 1st Pod Cast!

In 2012 I got an email from a lady who writes a blog called, “Old School Lane,” she had seen my ‘80’s Nickelodeon blog and asked if she could interview me about those older shows on Nickelodeon that I write about and I said yes. Well, the other day I got an email from her saying that she was doing a pod cast on Skype for Nickelodeon’s 40th anniversary. She was going to do it this weekend and post it to her YouTube channel in December and she asked me to be a part of it! So, I’m getting ready to do that here in a couple of hours and I’m so excited! Here’s the link to the interview she first did with me.

In Search of Saturdays

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" an advertising space I’ve designed to help our members find those long-lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time.

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list in the comments and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for. - This will be a group effort please.

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also, please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members.

A good place to start our searches is iOffer which, in my opinion, is better than eBay because you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.

*** MY WANT LIST ***
This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally watched them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies – for my private viewing – please contact me at Also, IF YOU CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Thank you.
