The Things We Remember

This kind of ties in with the post I just made about the little things making us happy...

I remembered watching this show on Nickelodeon (back in the day when Nickelodeon was the best channel on TV) when I was very little...all I could remember was a mannequin that would come to life, and a lady in a pink and red jumpsuit that, in my head, looked like Claire Huxtable. Well, folks, the internet is your friend, because after a quick google search I found it. This excerpt is from

"Each night in a major city, Sam the Security Guard locks the closed department store and joins Jodie in the Children's department as she brings a special mannequin with her even as she prepares to work on a display for the next day. With some magic words, the magic hat it wears brings it to life and becomes Jeff. Together with Muffy the Mouse, this gang learn about various things to teach younger viewer, both by the themselves and with visitors to the store."

After a little more research, I actually found a picture of the show! I cannot tell you how happy this has made me! I had been wracking my brain trying to figure out what this show was...I was starting to think I had imagined it. Now, after 5 seconds of online research, I have the answer, and a huge smile on my face.

    It's Today's Special!!!! I watched that show EVERY DAY! I remember at the end they were going to tear down the store ... I remember Muffy and Jeff and Jody and Sam and Sam had a cat, too. Awww. memories!

  2. I remember that! We could only watch it at my grandparents' though, cause we didn't get Nick!

  3. That is so cool! I remember this show. I remember when they dressed up like tweedle-dee & tweedle-dum and when Muffy was in her house(I think by the elevator) and there was fire! That really takes me back to being so little, thanks for this fun post! ~Jaz
