Would eat dinner in front of the TV and watch ZOOM !!
Being an only child, I would beg my parents to let me eat dinner in front of the TV and watch ZOOM !! 30 years later, I still remember many of the games, stories, skits, and songs. The animated and clay-mation short films from the kids from Ohama, Nebraska were awesome. I remember learning how to make clay (but they told us not to eat it !). One of the kids had his tonsils out, and they filmed him in the hospital before and after, then he talked about it in a squeaky voice on ZOOMrap. I was always sad when they switched to new kids, because it meant that my favorites (and the cute girls !!) would leave the show, and it would take a few episodes to get used to the new cast. And Bernadette with her arm-twisting is still the coolest trick I've ever seen. The kids they used to do a short interview with were always my favorite (the kids who made their own skateboards, the kid that built a humongous treehouse, and the sugar-cane boys were classic - "it tastes like sugar.....well, what do you think it is, dummy ?). I will always remember this show. The New ZOOM was good for my kids, but nothing beats the original !!
