''Peppermint Park'' was an educational home video series that was produced in TheEighties by Televidics Productions and Mark V Productions. This series, described as being, "Straight-to-video and straight-from-Hell," features a cast of puppet characters who get together to teach children various different educational lessons, ranging from letters, numbers, colors, animals, and other similar topics through a series of stale lectures and poorly-written songs.
The characters featured on this show have been a source of nightmares for many, almost resembling characters from ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie'' with almost-eerily-realistic-looking heads, and almost all characters having gardening gloves for hands. Some of these characters include Ernie (no, not ''[[Series/SesameStreet that]]'' [[Series/SesameStreet Ernie]]), who sings a song about the letter 'M'; Little Bit, a little girl with braided hair and a very muscular body who gives lectures about numbers; Piggle, an anthropomorphic ballcap-wearing pig [[Franchise/TheMuppets with the voice of a frog]], [[Series/SesameStreet and the insatiable appetite of a certain blue monster]], who often screws up the lectures and demonstrations being made; and Maynard, and elderly man [[TheEeyore who is so depressed about being blue]] that all he eats is bleu cheese.
If you haven't already gathered from this description, in addition to featuring scary puppets and poorly-written songs, this series is also known for being a near blatant rip-off of ''Series/SesameStreet'', from its opening title sequence of candid film footage of children playing, to puppets giving educational lectures, singing songs about letters, and even filmed inserts of animals - even the [[AlliterativeName alliterative title]] is a give-away! The fact that the series has a character who shares Cookie Monster's definitive characteristic, and another shares his moniker with Ernie, doesn't help matters much.
The series itself is really obscure, having only been released on VHS and apparently limited to just six half-hour episodes. You'd be hard-pressed to find any actual copies of the tapes, but clips and full episodes from the series have unfortunately been preserved for viewing on Website/YouTube, where almost all of them are [[CriticalDissonance bashed out the wazoo]] in the comment sections. It has also been mercilessly mocked [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwgpDHrZ3UA in this YouTube Poop]].

* EdutainmentShow: Though the educational level is rather shallow and the entertainment level is up for dispute.
* OnTheNext: Each episode ends with this, and with the lack of quality control throughout the production, it should be no surprise that the previews often don't jibe with what actually happens in the next volume. Volume 6 has a generic one, which probably means that they knew it was going to be the last episode.
