Remember the Boohbahs? BOOHBAH was a British kids show that PBS aired in the aughts and the main characters were – well, Boohbahs. I didn’t watch it but I know it was by one of the co-creators of TELETUBBIES and it was a love-it-or-hate-it kind of show. Young people (the target audience) enjoyed it, of course, but I know adults who had a very negative reaction to the series. Can’t say why exactly but that’s my memory of it. Anyway, I saw this Boohbah toy in the Rootle division. “Magic Motion Boohbahs” indeed.

In case you haven’t seen the Google Doodle celebrating the Mister Rogers anniversary last week, you should check it out. Honestly, “charming” doesn’t even begin to do it justice. And it’s okay to get a little misty.
