Special Delivery – Kids’ Writes

Kids where truly the foundation when it came to Kids’ Writes. Children of all ages composed and mailed in short stories. The stories and poems which were chosen were then acted out on camera before a live audience on a single set consisting of wooden ramps, steps, metal hoops, and nets. Some stories were even turned into songs which were performed by the actors exactly as they had written, misspelled words included. Before each story, song or poem was presented a title card would show the author’s name, age and hometown. The cast was made up of four actors, Wynn White, Carlo Grossman, John Rousseau and Steve Rifkin. Joining them was director and musician Jim Mairs.

The stories submitted by the children consisted of a variety of themes such as, being scared or lonely, excited about being a big brother or sister, there was one about how commercials were a waste of time; another stating that children shouldn’t have to do homework. There were also fun stories about monkeys who escaped from the zoo, a fish who couldn't swim, aliens from outer space, polka dot monsters, and so much more. It was a simple yet charming show that I was very excited to find online. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

In Search of Saturday

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 places to start our searches is iOffer ( which, in my opinion, is better than eBay b/c you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.

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.
