    There was an old kids tv show that was about a box of toys/antiques that I think were either sentient or gave you special powers. The TV show had big Doctor who / Sarah Jane adventure vibes about it and it was out in the 2000-2015 time period Reply

    I remember this show or movie, but for the life of me, I can't find it. I remember the main character's, they were kids, we're trying to solve these riddles to find this silver orb. I remember in one scene that 1 of them was lowered into a well to pull out a loose brick. And in another scene They scratch the paint off of a carousel horses I to reveal the silver orb. Does anyone know what this movie or show was? Reply

      Could it have been cyberchase? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0309141/episodes Theres one episode where they've to retrieve a glowing orb and another where they've to solve riddles?

      This sounds like an are you afraid of the dark episode

      Almost positive that this was the episode Tale of the Silver Sight from the show Are You Afraid of the Dark? I believe that you can watch the episode on YouTube.

      It sounds like the "Are You Afraid of the Dark" movie that bridged the first cast of AYAOTD with a new one with a mystery that actually featured the campers instead of just a scary story. Maybe between the revival, of the season 5 and 6?

    Does anyone know the name of the kid's TV show that had an elf living on a bookshelf? One of the main characters was an old grandfatherly man who was very soft-spoken and gentle. The show had children's level mysteries and personal setbacks, etc., which the elf would solve by the end of the show.

    The actor who played the elf looked *exactly* like David Krumholtz, but I see no mention of such a show on his IMDb profile.

    Thanks. Reply

      I just remembered that the show took place in a toy shop. The owner was a gentle, grandfatherly old man who was very soft spoken and friendly. The elf lived on the shelf, and knew everything that went on in the store.

      Gepetto's Workshop?

      I did more searching, and found out it was The Noddy Shop, but I don't see David Krumholtz or his look-alike. It is the show, because I remember Sean Mc Cann being in it, but it's not the way I remember it.

    Its a show about two or three witches, and i think it was aired in the 2000s. Because of the clothing and production. But it was about theses women who had just discovered they were witches, one of them had brown auburn hair and had a daughter, the other i think was asian, im not sure, but she had black hair and glasses. Im not sure which episode this is, but one of them, i think the one in glasses, is captured by a gypsy like woman and they have to escape her grasps. And a quote that i remember from it is the brown haird woman replying to her love interest in the story. Guy: how do you keep your garden so neat ?? (Or something along the lines of him questioning how all of her flowers are still in bloom) and she replies "magic". Thats all i remember . If you know what it is, i would be very greatfull. Reply

    In the early '80s there was a one-time TV comedy show featuring Randy Newman's pop song "Short People Got No Reason." I don't remember any special characters in the show. This was not a series, but a single show with no future. I watched the whole thing, and it was very funny, but the humor was largely slap-stick, which is one of my favorite types of humor. One of the scenes was a 'public service announcement.' It showed a man running down the street. He turned away for a second, and ran face-first into a road sign, and his feet flew up and he landed on his back. A voice-over then said "Don't do this." This could have aired in the late '70s, but I'm thinking more like '81 or '82. I would love to see it again. So many shows are lost. Aired once, and forgotten. Reply

    I thought this was a Twilight Zone episode, but it must be something similar because it isn't the 1963, 4 or 5 years.

    There is a dystopian world where everyone is really living in ramshackle homes with card board furniture and dirt floors (maybe not accurate, but definitely run down furniture). There is only one man who can see the world for what it truly is. Everyone else is in bliss and through their eyes, it's like they're in a Leave it to Beaver episode. Reply

      Could you be thinking of Virtual Nightmare?

      Not quite "Leave it to Beaver" but in the classic Doctor Who episode "The Keys of Marinus" (part II, the Velvet Web) featured the city of Morphoton which had an illusion projected to make it seem like paradise but actually was full of dirt and squalor. The episode was from 1964. It was a woman, not a man, who first realised that everything was not as it seemed.

    Okay... so I'm looking for a TV movie that was aired in the 90's (possibly the late 80's but I doubt it). It was a sort of psychological thriller/horror movie that I remember being very dark, in content & visuals. I remember a mother & daughter, a piano, the ocean. (It's not the movie "The Piano.") I think the mother ends up going crazy & running into the ocean, killing herself at the end. Lots of gray skies and rain. I think what I remember most was the overall feel of the movie. A very spooky sort of uncomfortable story. But that might have been because I was probably about 7-10 years old. A few years back I googled some keywords & found it, but stupid me didn't write it down & I've tried a google search again with no luck. If anyone can help I would so appreciate it! Thanks! Reply

    So I remember scrolling through the channels as a kid and came across this TV show that aired only during certain seasons (on an Estonian channel called ETV). So I tried watching it often but was forbid by my grandma and I'd like to find out what happened in the end because I never got to see it entirely and before I get started on describing the TV show I'm going to say that I don't remember much of it but it WAS NOT a ANIMATED TV show.

    Anyway, the story surrounds on a young boy who's in this small town and he's in the woods and goes through somekind of a magical bush (the bushe's entrance is golden) and once he passes it he's somewhere else (perhaps a wonderland?) and then there's this woman/witch(?) following him or looking after for him after he does it. He visits the bush very often and is in the woods. I remember there were a bunch of scenes of him at school aswell but don't remember many details of the TV show. But if anyone knows the name of the show I would be grateful. Thanks Reply

      What time period did you watch it in?

      I can't remember. It was around year 2005-2009 I think

    Alright this show that I've randomly remembered had these major points that I remember: 1) I believe it was a cartoon network show. Im 90% percent sure, if not it could possibly have been disney or nick. 2) I believe there were 2 or 3 main characters. Mainly a guy, and possibly a girl and another guy. They were supposed to be teens in High School if memory is good. 3) There was this episode that i remember where they were trying to stop a Basilisk. This particular basilisk was more Velociraptor like, meaning it stood on two legs and had a long neck where its head rested, and made in some CGI animation. I believe the whole show was about capturing monsters. 4) Im pretty sure this show aired between the years 2005-2011 based on other shows i've watched before and after that time. However i cant remember shows that i for sure watched along this one.

    I'm trying to figure out a show I watched as a child that had both real people and puppets. The specific episode that comes to mind includes a man who visits the characters house with a basket of kittens for the kids to play with. I also remember either the man giving them pineapple upside down cake, or the main female character giving it to him. I also vaguely remember the female talking on the phone and the phone is the type that is see through with the inside mechanisms being rainbow colored. According to the only other person that I found on the internet who also remembers this episode, there is a talking clock, an inch worm outside of their window, and a mouse family who plays rock n roll. At first I thought the show was "Under the Umbrella Tree", but I can't find this specific episode within that series. Reply

      Captain Kangaroo? Just a shot in the dark here.

      It could be either
      • The Fox Cubhouse
      • Out Of The Box
      • Big Bag

      I don't think it's any of those :( it's definitely not out of the box or captain kangaroo

      I've been trying to figure this out for a couple days now! I remember there being a catapillar or lizard thing lounging while talking on the phone (inside a tv screen). This is driving me nuts!

      I've been trying to find this show for YEARS..... I remember everything you said. I'm so happy someone else remembers it too, now I don't feel as crazy. Have you found anything else yet?

    Hi! I remember watching two shows when I was younger, between 2005 and 2010. Note that I live in Spain, but I'm positive these shows came from an English speaking country.

    1. A Disney Channel show about a boy and a girl. One of them lives in a warm place (like California) while the other lives in a snowy place (like Alaska). The boy's parents force him to sleep in the basement, and there he finds a weird... slimy portal, hidden behind a closet. It turns out he can use said portal to travel to the girls house, and vice-versa. I'm pretty sure it was a show, but it could have been a movie.

    2. A Nickelodeon show about a boy who use to be a bully, so an old man (not sure if he was a wizard or if he had weird sciencey/cosmic powers) transforms him into a dog as a punishment. He is then taken in by the boy he used to buly. The show is about the bully trying to redeem himself by doing a series of good deeds (100?) so the old man will turn him back into a human.

    It would be awesome if you could help me. Thanks! Reply

      2: 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd?

      Yeah, that was it! Thanks a bunch. Now I just gotta know the name of the first show.

      The second one definitely sounds like Eddie Mc Dowd.

      1 : Small chance but maybe Foreign Exchange?

      Yep, that was it! Oh my god, I thought I'd never find it, I can't describe how grateful I am!

      Ah, the comment about snow threw me - I don't remember much about snow on the Irish side

      The comment about California threw me - unless a special US adaptation of the programme was released, the other end of the portal was in Australia, IIRC.

    This was a religious thing for kids that I watched at church, sometime between the late 90s and early 2000s. It involved some kids being visited by an angel, who looked like basically a regular kid as well. The kids questioned why the angel didn't have wings, to which the angel sarcastically commented "Hooray for Hollywood." The angel, I guess, took the kids on some kind of adventure or discussed things with them, then left- and one of the kids still thought angels should have wings. I think it was a one-off video, not part of a series. Reply

      Was it a Precious Moments cartoon? I haven't watched it in 13+ years but I know of a cartoon from the 90s about an angel visiting a kid. Iirc, it's pretty cutesy though.

      Was there a girl who called her guardian angel "Mikey" who was kinapped? That's about the only 90's religious movie involving kids and angels I can think of, and unfortunately, I don't know the title. I am wondering if we are looking for the same film?

      The film I mentioned is called "My Secret Friend: A Guardian Angel Story." I couldn't find much information on it, other than it came out in 1994 with a 1997 VHS release. It sounds like it's at least from the right time period. Edit: I just realized you were looking for a live-action film, not an animated one.

      Yeah, it was live action.

    I know I've been asking here before, but I have still not found any answers as to what these two shows I am referring to. For those who are unaware, here are my descriptions of an episode for these two shows:

    1) A 2001 short-lived kid's TV show somewhat similar to Sesame Street (I think it was on either PBS, Nickelodeon) with hand puppets and mascot costumes and 2D animation. One episode includes kids (in pajamas, I think) dance-sitting holding a toy (possibly teddy bears) in a classroom, while two life-size puppets in front of a blue tarp or sheet. NOTE: the whole song is played the first time; the second time is the same thing, but the video quickly fades to black and the credits roll while the song is still playing. Does anyone know what the show is? And if so, what episode was I referring to?

    2) I remember an older aged woman who was dressed in blue who was pushed in a water fountain one night. The next day, the same woman appeared again with a man (don't know who he is) and was asked for questioning. After checking through the footage, it was NOT from Dynasty. It had to have been from an older TV show.

    If anyone has a clear idea as to what any of these shows are, please let me know. Thank you. Reply

    I'm trying to find a TV show that featured puzzles throughout, hosted by some guy who looked like a magician, and with a floating purple orb that talked cryptically. Reply

      I don't remember the floating purple orb.

      Is it a game show?

      There was a UK children's gameshow from the early eighties called The Adventure Game which if I remember correctly at the end had contestants moving across a grid and trying not to be on the same square as a ball of light. A possibility?

      No purple floating orb, but as well as The Adventure Game I can remember two further BBC children's shows which heavily featured puzzles that might fit the bill.

      Wizbit hosted by a magician, the late Paul Daniels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm2yzVxKFhw

      Jigsaw co-presented by the mime artist Adrian Hedley who wore a top hat as part of his costume, so might be mistaken for a magician. It had a red floating jigsaw piece rather than a purple orb though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFKCuF9w6OM

    I remember seeing this as a skit or a horror anthology type thing in the mid 80s- early 90s. It was all a very cheery parody of a tv game show. Contestants get a question right or have their finger chopped off by a mini guillotine. Part of it showed past winners waving at the camera with fingerless hands. Reply

      I seem to remember a mid-80s Saturday Night Live skit like this.

      I just found a sketch in season 11 episode 12 that has a similar theme but it's definitely not it not it. Was it a reoccurring sketch?

    Someone please help me, I've been looking for this movie for the last five years and its driving me INSANE.

    I used to borrow this VHS from the library religiously back in the 90's. The movie itself was made late 80's/early 90's. It was a children's monster movie that had a bunch of different skits in it. One of the main characters/the host was a black guy with long hair in dreadlocks and there were a bunch of songs.

    One of the skits had a Sasquatch type thing running through the woods called a Snork. The song that went along with it went, "It's a Snork, a Snork, a real live Snork". And from other research I've done on this movie, a girl is hiding it in her closet (other people have been looking for this too, but no one seems to be able to figure out what it is). Another skit had a vampire interviewing a nurse outside of a hospital or clinic or something and after the interview he eventually started sucking her blood. I believe the last skit of the movie was something called a skeleton jamboree, and it had a bunch of people dressed up as skeletons dancing in a wooded area. I also remember a part where a girl was waking up for school in the morning and she was hiding under her blankets, but she eventually got out of bed and was like, scratching her arms and doing her morning stretches and stuff.

    There's more to the movie I'm sure, but those are the parts that I specifically remember. I've googled every possible thing I could relating to this movie, but nothing seems to come up... other than other people looking for the same thing. If someone could please figure out what this movie is, I would be forever indebted to you. Reply

    I used to watch a show that I can't find anywhere, and it's driving me crazy. The entire cast was kids/teens, they played both the kid and adult roles. parents and teachers were played by kids, and kids were also played by kids. I vaguely recall scenes in a family home, and then at a restaurant or diner (also fully staffed by kids). I don't think this was Kids incorporated, because there were actual adults on that show. And the show I'm thinking of wasn't musical, it was dramatic, kind of like a soap opera with an all-kids cast (if I'm remembering correctly). This would have aired sometime in the mid to late 80s. Maybe 1986-88ish? Reply
