***Comments Needed And Welcomed***

Recently I was contacted by owners of Old School Lane Blog, Patricia and Kevin, who requested an interview with me about my Classic Nickelodeon Wednesday Fan Blog (this blog).

One of the questions they asked me was which Classic Nickelodeon shows I would like to see remade and one of my answers was “Kids’ Writes” so I emailed that part of the interview to Jim Mairs from Kids’ Writes (the blond guy on the right) and imagine my surprise when I checked my email the next day and found this email from Mr. Mairs.

He’s very interested in hearing what other Classic Nick fans think about my interview with me so I’m asking all of you to PLEASE comment about that interview here so that I can send your comments to him.

Yall, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. Mr. Mairs is a very good link to 80’s Nickelodeon and it’s important that if he’s asking for feedback that we all give it to him. Please my interview and comment here.

Old School Lane's Nickelodeon Tribute: Interview with Peggy Sue Clay


  1. I have been looking all over for clips of the original, and wonder if he has any remaining as this show seems to have all but been erased without a trace. This is tragic, a remake could really fuel the creativity for kids just starting to write. If you could ask, I am very curious as to what has come of the other members of the group, what they are doing, etc. I was such a big fan of the show, and the songs were incredible. I remember Noisemaker Lane, Teddybear Teddybear, and Cave Secrets immediately. I don't have kids, but if I did I would definitely play this show for them. A remake would be an excellent idea.

  2. Thank you for your comment Steven, I feel exactly the same way. Almost every Saturday I post a thread called “In Search of Saturday” where I list the shows I've been looking for and Kids’ Writes is listed every week but I never get a response. The only thing I do have of the show are two, very old, cassette tapes with two of the shows on them but it’s not the same. I mean I listen to them and “see” it (good old 80’s imagination!) but it’s still not the same. I REALLY wish they would put it on DVD for us. And somewhere around the house I have a list of the shows on one of the tapes so when I finish I’m going to post the titles here on my blog and then go pot them to Wikipedia.

    Okay so stories I remember, Noisemaker Lane, Eddie’s Disco Bar, Fishy Fishy and Monkey Shines.

  3. Good news: Six "Kid's Writes" episodes were uploaded to YouTube about a month ago:

    "Guitar Contest" in episode 2 is pretty great!

  4. OH MY GOODNESS, THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! I haven’t seen them in over 30 years! This is so amazing, thank you for posting the link for us!
