The holiday season is upon us and there’s no better evidence of this fact around these parts than this rather unusually-hued arboreal display in our Rootle division. Yep, it’s a Cookie Monster tree, complete with bulging eyeballs! I think I can guess what Cookie Monster would want to find wrapped beneath the tree.
Please note: No Muppets were harmed making this tree.
Looking through a cache of old photos I discovered a while back, I found a folder of publicity stills used to promote the children’s series LAMB CHOP’S PLAY-ALONG. The show, which ran for four seasons from 1992 to 1995, featured puppeteer Shari Lewis and her beloved creations – sassy Lamb Chop, shy Hush Puppy and goofball Charlie Horse. The program was designed to get kids up and moving and not simply be couch potatoes.
Here are a few photos PBS sent out to help sell the series…
As I’ve said before, we love t-shirts here in public broadcasting. They make great swag. Here’s one I believe someone brought me from a PBS conference.
The 24/7 PBS Kids launched a few years back so my guess is this shirt was a giveaway to promote said service (UNC-TV’s Rootle now consists of the PBS Kids channel combined with our weekend Read-A-Roo Block Party).
