This was a live-action children's series that aired on CBC from 1986 - 1993, and also the DisneyChannel in the early 1990s. The setting was an upscale apartment in [[BigApplesauce what was probably supposed to be New York]], and the main characters were freelance artist [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Holly Higgins]] and her three young animal friends (actually portrayed by puppets): Gloria the Gopher, Iggy (short for "[[AwesomeMcCoolName Ignatz]] [[ButNotTooForeign Julio]]") Iguana and Jacob the Bluejay.

Added DiffLines:

* CatchPhrase: Jacob, when corrected on something, would always say: "I knew that!" In one episode he {{Lampshaded}} this by listing his hobbies as "flying, playing with my friends and saying 'I knew that.'"


Added DiffLines:

* GeniusDitz: Jacob didn't have much in the way of common sense and often got things wrong, but he was very knowledgeable about flying and recognized as somewhat of an authority on the subject, even among other birds.

* AnimeHair: Both Iggy and Jacob had a set. With Jacob it was at least justified (he was a bird, and it was a crest of feathers).
