Adventures of Snelgrove Snail, The (Series) (1979-1980)

The Adventures of Snelgrove Snail takes place in an underwater village of Snailsville. Some dramatic story action takes place among the various puppets representing undersea creatures. An educational theme runs through the program: episodes about pioneers and a homily about a little knowledge being a dangerous thing. The characters also demonstrate their performing talents in events like the gastropod follies.

A sort of musical version of the Waterville Gang, the show spawned at least one record album, The Snailsville Gastropod Jamboree!, featuring such standards as "Obesity," "Happy Turtle," "Ramses Crepidula," and "A Hot Time in Snailsville. "
