Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “out of the box.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “out of the box.” Enjoy!
This prompt brought back a delightful memory! My normal tendency to wax philosophically has been interrupted for this public service announcement to grandmas and childcare givers.
During my childcare years, I became a children’s programing connoisseur. Around the year 2000, I had a favorite program that the kids and I watched. It was called Out of the Box and was produced by Disney. I haven’t thought of it in years!
It had storytelling, music, and art projects that were wonderful. One segment, in particular, came to mind because I couldn’t help but dance to it. Upon revisiting it… I still needed to dance! I posted it for y’all below.
The cast, content, and messages in this delightful show was excellent and I hope anyone who is lucky enough to be in the presence of young kids (and still has a happy, silly, heart) will look it up on YouTube. There are full episodes available. You won’t be disappointed.
I can’t imagine where children’s programming has gone lately. I’m confident its better days are behind us.
Happy Saturday friends! Let’s dance. ❤

Never heard of the show, but I bet it was better than “Barney”…
Oh gawd! A test pattern was better than Barney. LOL
Thanks. Now my nightmares will return. 🤣
I’ve always liked test patterns myself…
I love to dance like this too! We had lovely similar programs like Out of the Box, ours were Playshool, Chocabloc and Blue Peter , How, and why don’t you …all gone except for on YouTube…as you say the best is all behind us now! 😌💜
For all its faults, the internet redeems itself by allowing us to revisit happy times. People who spontaneously need to dance are my favorite. 😉❤
Lol I like people who dance spontaneously are my favourites too 💜💚💚
