Episode Guide - Vid Kids (Series) (1985-1987)

Back to full details for Vid Kids

Vid Kids
Jan 5, 1985 - Pilot. (CTV) VID KIDS, a highly original is a contemporary musical adventure for children - of all ages. Bob Schneider is special guest star. Peter Jarvis appears as "Computerman". VID KIDS combines joyous, imaginative children's songs with hot new video technology. Each song is brought to life in music video style; the look and feel of the show is high energy fun. Four delightful VID KIDS anchor the show: Rocco Bellusci, Allyson Court, Richard Yearwood and Natalie Margitta. They are joined in the videos by other young people recruited from everywhere kids are to be found. With their friends, Bob Schneider and the magical "Computerman", the VID KIDS move through time and space and into musical flights of fancy -- a showdown with Frankenstein and Wolfman, breakdancing in a Carnival market, partying with the Lone Ranger in an uptown disco. The video illustrations are as unique and varied as the lyrics of each song .. and always "AMAZING"!
