    I was in california recently and I watched a Japanese crime/detective show on TV. The most notable part of this show was that as the police characters were explaining what happened in the crime scene, a man in a blue morph suit would play as the victim and reenact the crime.. Reply

    I need help remembering the name of a show that was on KERA (PBS station in Dallas, Texas) but could have been shown elsewhere. 1970s or early 80s, children's show about math with a teacher/host that was an older guy with bushy eyebrows and a raspy voice. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Reply

      A few more details will help - do you remember anything about Jack - was he a doctor, cop, etc? Or when did the show come out? Was it magical fantasy, cops, and robbers, based off a Sci Fi book, etc?

    I need help remembering a show I saw on the WB network in the early 2000s. Basically, this woman finds herself trapped or lost in some alien village that has a strong ocean or aquatic theme. The outside almost looks like a beautiful botanical garden with waterways and shell houses and anthropomorphic ocean creature people. I remember that there was a kid that looked like a seal and barked like one whom the main character befriended. The whole show she is trying to find her way back home and in the end she does and everyone is sad to see her leave. Reply

    I don't kow why I just remembered this one show but after I did I wanted to watch it again but can't because I don't know its name or even know if its out on the internet anywhere. I'll do my best to describe it. It was a kids/young teens live action show, I'm not even sure what channel it was on but I think it was nickelodeon (I'm not sure though), it was half live action and half CGI, it involved either a virtual world or some other dimension (always shown in the CGI) there was a evil force taking over that world and some aliens from it came to earth (always live action) to stop it. The show mostly revolved around two boys about 12-14 years old and a teenage girl who was one of the aliens, she also had some kind of companion who was always hidden in her backpack on earth, The boys got caught up in the situation and would travel to her world to help her, in that world she looked like a blue robot and I think the one boy was a yellow robot and the other might have been green or grey color I think. The girls companion would look more like a dog creature in this world. All the villians would have a red color to them. The CGI world has an industrial factory looking setting and the portal to it was in the school boiler room. An agent of the evil was a janitor at the school and was suspicious of the group. The one boys father was either dead or missing and throughout the show it seemed he was involved in whatever was going on. The mystery was never solved to my knowledge because I am almost certain the show was canceled. I know in some ways this sounds similar to an animated show called Code Lyoko but I remember that show clearly and know for a fact that isn't what I'm remembering. Sorry about the vagueness of details I'm working off of memory from like 10 years or more ago. Let me know if you need more. Reply

    Hi, I've been looking for this TV show for years, and I'll try my best to describe it!

    From what I can remember, it was (possibly) a British TV show for kids/teens. It was set at a group home/orphanage where you get to learn about the kids lives. The main character was a young girl, probably 14 with curly hair, and she always lied about why she was in the group home. I think every episode she said something different, like that her mum was a famous singer etc. and couldn't take care of her, but that she'd come back for her (or something along those lines). Whenever she talked about her mum, it would be an animated scene (like in Lizzy Mc Guire) and I remember one episode she said that her mum was a famous actress and then the animated scene came up and it was the mum getting out of a limo with photographers taking photos.

    I think the series also focused on other characters backstories, like I think there was a potential love interest (as there always is) and twins/sisters at the orphanage/home as well? And there is a lady that is in charge of the home, but I don't think the main chick liked her, because she would always try to run away (I think) and she was angry all the time.

    I'm so sorry I can't think of anything else, but it's potentially early 2000s and probably a British show. Reply

    I can't remember the name of this show I watched in middle school. I watched in early 2000s but it looked a little old so maybe it was made in the 90s? I remember a boy would go to this library and the librarian was an old guy and the kid I think would tell the librarian about something that happened that day and the librarian would give him a book. I remember the Anne Frank episode where the kid went to like a holocaust museum or something and the book took him to Anne Frank's time so he could experience it himself? I remember the kid who talk to the librarian, get a book, and be transported to the time the book is set in.

    It was one of my favorite things about middle school and I was wanting to see if I could find it to watch again. Reply

      Sorry for all my spelling mistakes. I was getting a bit frustrated that I couldn't find it.

      This is a little harder to google than I thought it would be - it isnt featured in tv shows featuring time travel, googling the word tv shows about librarians is impossible now - thanks to the librarians show, and it isnt listed in cultural depictions of Anne Frank. Any chance the book was magical and didnt just work for time travel?

      I don't know if it was time travel but I remember the boy talking to Anne Frank so I don't really know. Sorry I can't be more helpful but I only remember a tiny bit of the show

    I've been trying to remember this show that was on on Sunday mornings. It was about this old Mexican man that lived or had a wood-shop in East Los Angeles. But he had 2 marionettes as companions. One was a little Mexican Boy and the other a Donkey and they would explore places in the city. They once were on the Goodyear Blimp. I can't find anything maybe someone can remember or help. Oh, I should also add that the show was in English, as in it was an American show with a Latinos cast. Reply

    This one's going to be really obscure, but here goes. I'm looking for a failed pilot for a game show. The central concept was that the contestants would take turns directing the lovely assistant around a grid. Each square would light up when she stepped on it, white was good, red was bad (think Minesweeper without any numbers). The rules did vary slightly between rounds; I seem to remember that some rounds would feature the occasional green square which gave the contestant a bonus.

    The thing is, it might have actually been a game show parody, rather than an actual game show:
    • When a contestant was eliminated, they would use a Star Trek-like transporter effect to remove them from the game. The contestants uniformly reacted as though they were actually being beamed away. (Although, they could have been coached to do that.)
    • At the end of the game, the host himself tried to play, just for kicks, hit a red square, was eliminated (complete with transporter effect), and they had a new host ready to go. (Although, that could have been a scripted part of the show because the existing host couldn't stay for the full series.)
    • There was no pattern at all as to where the red squares were, and no clues, so it playing was obviously %100 luck.

    Then again, despite all that, it did run for the full half-hour, so I don't really believe that it was a parody skit. Still, just wanted to point that out.

    Anybody remember it? Reply

      This sounds a lot like the BBC series The Adventure Game, which wasn't a failed pilot - it ran for four seasons.

      In the final round, contestants had to be guided across a grid avoiding the square that contained the Vortex, which they could not see. But if they'd done well in the previous rounds, they had a limited number of cheese rolls that they could use to test a square before stepping on it.

      The penalty for failing a game was being "evaporated". In the early rounds, this sent the contestant to the Black Hole, and the others got a chance to rescue them later. In the later rounds, it was permanent.

    In 1994 I saw this comedy TV series about about some kids -possibly from USA- and thier struggle against the usual evil alien army: I know that if the big alien ship is insectoid and the kids wear coloured suits it is obviously some Power Rangers stuff, but this series had some very strange characters in it, like a bunch of good-hearted monster (a remember a ghost with chalk white skin and garishly coloured clothes -his name was something like "Flounders"- and a mummy) that lived in an abandoned house and bizarre things happened at times (I remember a pirate that was brought back from the past, so he couldn't understand the concept of "horsepower" since horses were too big to live in an engine). Any clue? Reply

      You got the date wrong. That's definitely Beetleborgs, but it aired in 1996-1997. And you're right about the Power Rangers similarity - both shows were made by Saban and based on Japanese shows made by Toei.

    It was a GAME SHOW in the height of game shows, so around the late 2000s, probably 2007...ish. I'm pretty sure it didn't make a full season, probably cancelled once the network realized what it was (I'm thinking NBC for this reason), but the premise was taking audience members as contestants (they filled out a questionnaire) and making them do weird things, especially things they're afraid of (I remember someone skydiving and another who thought he ate a casserole of worms, but it turned out it was just a regular casserole) and there were gag prizes at the end. Someone won a car... frame, and another won "red orange pants with lightning bolts down the side", I swear that's what it was, but I guess it was 10 years ago, so I might have forgotten. They made fun of the guy for writing that he wanted "red orange pants with lightning bolts down the side" and he said he did it on a whim, seemed great at the time. But they made them for him and it was great, now I want them too. Host may have been British, might as well have been Jimmy Carr I guess, but I don't know, he was a white male.

    Help! I've been thinking about this for like 10 minutes and I want to know what this was!

    So I watched this show a few years ago and I barely remember what was happening but there was this girl and a boy, and the boy was taken to this facility, and then the girl managed to break in there, but when she saw the people in there, they all looked like him, but none of them were him.

    She was caught and firstly she was taken into a classroom where all the boys were on tablets and she was handcuffed to the desk/stand and then after that she was taken into one of the rooms with a bed and she demanded she wanted to go home and someone told her she was already home.

    Then it cuts to one of the FAKE boys, impersonating the REAL boy at his real home.

    I have a very distinct memory of an episode of a TV but I can't figure out what it was. It had a bunch of real kids at a camp and they were given clues in a shoebox about a spooky mystery that occurred at the camp. I feel like it was pretty scary at the time, I remember a lot of it taking place in the dark and the kids running around the camp, screaming, and looking for clues. I think the episode I remember involved a kid that drowned trying to get his brother's pet frog. Anyone remember this or know what this might have been or did I just fever dream this? Reply

    I remember a tv show from around 5-10 years ago, about a guy who finds an egg(?) ship that takes him to space.

    Now I don't remember much else, besides one episode, where he and his crew (a woman, an alien and I think a robot) find a time machine left by his father(?) and when the guy is inside it a badguy on a motorbike(?) swopes in and takes the girl. At the same time the robot activates the machine and the guy finds himself back at his ship, reliving the day. Also there is a sandwich here(?). He tries to convince the girl to stay away, but he ultimatly fails, and at the end of the episode simply resigns and promises to rescue her.

Some things I remember include: -There was a Halloween Episode where one of the daughters hates Halloween because it's also her birthday, a waiter in a Darth Vader Mask announces himself as Darth Waiter, and the Dad buys knockoff candy from Chinatown or something that is barely edible -An episode where the expecting couple decide their apartment is too small, and buy a firehouse -An episode after the Firehouse where the non-expecting couples get different ideas on how to become godparents, the younger of the two go for adopting the expecting couple's cat (Mr. Meowgi) -An episode where a banquet or something gives out film cells from The Little Mermaid, the expecting daughter wants one because she had red hair and was called Ariel because of it, and the other one wants it because she deluded herself into believing the same story -A season finale where the younger couple get married and become parents within the space of seconds Reply

It was about an American family living in modern day America but they either came from a Medevil time or a fairy tail world - I believe it was the latter. I think it was a Disney show but searching old Disney shows doesn't bring anything up. There was a farther, mother and kids and each week something would happen related to their time - I'm 99% sure it was a fairytale world they came from as I have a slight recollection of things like a bean stalk and giants etc. At a guess it would be early 90's maybe late 80's - Please help Reply

    It's a live action show, maybe it was on Cartoon Network? It was Sci-Fi. There were three main characters, two boys and a girl. The girl was from a video game world, she was competent and independent, frequently rejecting the help of the two male characters. The main male character had a single dad. The two male leads played a video game which turned out to be its own world, there was some sort of evil villain in the game who was spreading out into the real world. The girl comes out of the video game world and enrolls into school with the two boys to keep up appearances that she's a real human being and not some virtual being. I remember two scenes: one is a portal to the game opening up in the boiler room of the school, another is the main character's dad being possessed by a plant monster and being turned into a zombie and being locked in the closet. Please tell me I didn't just make this whole show up. It's not Code Lyoko and from what I do remember it didn't do so well. Reply

    An American sitcom (sometime between the 1960s and 1990s) with one episode involving two friends (both female) at a party with a snobby woman (I assume she's wearing blue) and then they 'accidentally' push the snobby woman into the fountain (which was in a courtyard in the middle of a house, so it was a patio type area), it was at nighttime but really bright as if lit by moonlight as well as the lights of the house. Does anyone know what the show is? And if so, what episode was I referring to?

      That wasn't it because it was in the 2000s. However if it is, which episode would you be referring to?

      It's season 4 episode 1. I double checked it and it's just two girls arguing not three and the push is on purpose. It's at 22:40 if you're curious. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3j6vxx

      I do want to add that the woman pushed in the fountain was dressed in blue, and was questioned by another guy the next morning.

      It wouldn't fit, but this also happened in an episode of Leave it to Beaver.

There would definitely have been 3 women present, though I assume Morgan Fairchild would be wearing a white dress.

      Bump. Just wanted to make sure the OP didn't give up.

      That's not it unfortunately. I know for a fact that the woman who fell in the water fountain was wearing blue (suit or dress), including a blue hat that is similar to maybe a shower cap or a bonnet.

      Bump.

      I seriously do not want this to be one of my life's unsolvable problems. Can someone help me please?

      Maybe it wasn't a sitcom?


      Originally I thought it was a sitcom, but I don't know if it was or not.

      Is it the original 90210?

      What makes you think it was 90210? Edit: Also, in the previous posting of this, Eastopatra gave extra details about the sitcom that the OP incorporated in. Those details did not include the blue dress, but included the two women and the courtyard, so maybe Eastopatra watched the episode of Cybill and mistakenly thought it was the same. This also could mean that the push actually was accidental because the OP originally thought it was an accident.

      But I do remember that the same woman did wear a blue dress in the next scene though, as in after the commercial break.

      There was definitely a blue dress in the show you watched, but maybe Eastopatra watched Cybill and gave you information from that? (You did not mention the two friends in your first post) .That's what I was implying. The main headache with this theory is that it gets rid of many of the details that you added on.

      And the woman, who was dressed in blue, was being questioned by a guy in that next scene.

      I also remember now that the fountain was inside the building and not outside.

      It doesn't seem like people falling into fountains is that uncommon in TV shows, so this will be hard.

    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.

      The date, style, inclusion of real children and song thing all fit The Hoobs. It also included a bus intro like previous comments mentioned (the Hoobmobile was their mobile home and it was a weird bus thing).

      Well the intro is very similar to The Hoobs, but I don't think it had any full-bodied puppets in that show. The show I'm referring to does have full-bodied puppets in addition. So I'm not quite sure if it's the show I'm looking for or not.

      The Hoobs did air on PBS according to the Internet. It fits almost all the points you mentioned apart from the full-body puppets one.

      But did it have any segments where they are were along with the kids and/or short animations?

      I remember them visiting children each episode but not 2D animated segments. It's definitely possible that there were some in the show, just that I don't remember them myself.

      Can you find any clips from the PBS version of "The Hoobs"?

      I had a quick look and I can't. I expect the PBS version to have been identical to the original for the most part.

      Maybe you confused The Hoobs with another PBS show by mistake?

      Maybe. Do you have any idea on what it is though?

      According to the Internet, The Hoobs aired on PBS Sprout. I, however, watched it in the UK on Channel 4.

      PBS Sprout is different from PBS, though.

      Well the show I'm referring to aired on PBS in 2001, or sometime between 2000 and 2002.

      Hm. I am unfamiliar with PBS programming. I just figured that The Hoobs seemed a good match.

      Someone else was asking not long ago about something similar, but the answer they were searching for was The Hoobs - maybe if you find that post you can look at the other options posted there?

      You ruled out The Hoobs the first time you posted this.

      I know it had the same intro, but I don't think The Hoobs had any people dressed up in costumes. I also thought that the show was in a way similar to Sesame Street.

      Bump.

      It very possibly is indeed The Hoobs that you are thinking of and your memory of it has simply altered slightly over time.

      Is it the show called Big Bag?

      There was a question that got buried underneath all the bumps, so I'll go ahead and re-ask it, giving credit to starbond9: Is the show called Big Bag?

      Did the show include performers in mascot-type costumes?

      Not sure on mascot costumes, but it says it has both puppets with live-action children, and 2d animation. Could this be it?

      try the Muppet show

      I don't think it was the Muppet Show, and I don't know about Big Bag. Bump.

      You want to know why your queries get to 50 replies? YOU BUMP THEM SO MUCH. Including on this post, burying people's actual questions and suggestions between all your bumping!

      Bump.
