Dear Aunt Agnes, Dear Aunt Agnes


YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

I used to watch Dear Aunt Agnes on TVOntario in the mid-80s.  It was about as low budget as you can get, but we didn't care.  I don't think you could get kids to watch Dear Aunt Agnes in 2009.

After this clip, I'll hit you up with the lyrics to the memorable theme songs.  If you're my age, you already know them by heart.

Dear Aunt Agnes, remember
You said you'd help me out if you could
Well my job is taking me far away
To leave the children just wouldn't be good
If you would say you would come and stay
You'd be the best aunt a girl ever had
Dear Aunt Agnes, Dear Aunt Agnes
Won't you come and stay?
