A Month of TV Commentary: A Meme in 30 Parts: Day 13

Day 13 – Favourite childhood show

It’s hard to pick just one show, as I was one of those kids in the TV age who grew up on the stuff. Also, where precisely would the dividing line be between childhood and not-childhood shows.

But thinking of it, there’s a show I remember quite fondly. It debuted when I was 10, and I watched it on and off for a number of years: PBS’s kid’s science programme 3-2-1 Contact

3-2-1 Contact was a magazine style program, with several (often related) segments dealing with science and nature. It also contained a running serial detective series with three kids, who would get caught up in various little mysteries, and solve them using some science trick or another:

Not sure how well they hold up after 30 years, though it was a bit of fun to rewatch these clips. Sadly, it doesn’t appear that this show has ever been released on DVD. C’mon, CTW, let’s see some love for the classics! 🙂

  1. Oh, I used to love that show when I was a kid!

  2. I think the one TV show that did more to shape my childhood than any other was The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show. 🙂

    • I remember as a child watching The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show and being disappointed whenever the short didn’t include Bugs. (Not that I didn’t enjoy the other WB characters. But I had my favourite and I wanted more, darn it! 🙂

  3. Mr. Bloodhound was never in.

  4. i remember liking 3-2-1-contact! but the only concrete memory of it i have is the theme song 🙂
