Wednesday Trivia Question

Ubbi dubbi is language game popularized by what TV show?

Ubbi dubbi is an English language gibberish game which works by inserting the “ub” sound before each vowel sound in a syllable. There may be many variations but the ubbi dubbi version is the most famous because it was frequently played on a 1970s PBS kids show. What show? It was “Zoom” – the classic PBS kids show that gave us those memorable mail-in instructions: “Write ZOOM, Z-Double-O-M, Box 3-5-0, Boston, Mass 0-2-1-3-4!” FYI – The show was remade for PBS in the late 1990s and ubbi dubbi was once again presented to a new generation of kubids.
