Polkaroo? I Missed Him Again!


YouTube user WNED17 recently uploaded some fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips have brought back a tonne of memories for me, so I'm going to feature them one by one over the next few weeks.

When I wrote all about The Polka Dot Door, one of my favourite television shows as a child, I couldn't find a YouTube clip to complement the memory.  Thanks to WNED17, I now have a few to choose from.

This clip, from 1981, includes my favourite part from each episode.  It's the inevitable moment the male host realizes he missed Polkaroo... again.

Here's the Polka Dot Door end credits.  When I hear this song, I'm four again.
