At the End of the [Reading] Rainbow August 31, 2009

After 26 years The Reading Rainbow is coming to an end because of lack of funding. I always loved Reading Rainbow, not the least of which because of the presence of Levar Burton, who my kids and I knew from Star Trek: The Next Generation. It makes me think of other shows I used to watch with the girls– Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, The Electric Company, Zoobilee Zoo. Some of these were easier to watch than others– Sesame Street was always fun but Mr. Rogers was boring and I thought the puppets were stupid. Zoobilee Zoo was okay but Electric Company was a little over the top.

What were your favorites of the PBS kids’ shows?
