Outstanding Educational Program
Highly original children's series. Each episode featured one letter of the alphabet. Sketch comedy and songs were used to explain and explore ideas and things that started with that week's letter. Highlights of "G" included Faith Prince as Cinderella, learning about glass; gladiolas vs. gladiators, and the band Betty Betty Betty singing "Genes."
