Oh my gosh that's a blast from the past. I was supposed to be on this show when I was a kid but on the day of the taping the mom in charge of driving us there "was sick". I've never gotten over it. Thanks for posting.

I danced on this show, 1n 1966 when I was 12. I had a crush on a girl, who tap dancd and her school needed boys to dance. It was a blast, dancing the monkee and the swim up on the riser. My male classmates teased me a lot but I was glad I went. I'd love to see footage of my appearance on the show, just for grins!

I would also be interested in any videos of this. My sister and I were raised by our single Mom and she brought us to dance on this show. She brings it up and I would love to get any video available to give to her. Please email me at melsmaulers@yahoo.com with any info available.

Hello my name is suzy mattus pearce
I loved Kiddie a go go. I was a contest winner for the record picker. He was a 45 with braided rug yarn for arms and leggs and yarn for hair. I won a Sergent Peppers Lonely Hearts club band album. I could not watch the show when my name was called but a relative called and said that she heard it on tv. I was so excited I could hardley wait . That show inspired me to become a singer and now I AM. Suzy Pearce
