Funtown (Series) (1986)

Funtown, produced by CKY-TV Winnipeg, was an hour-long variety show for younger children with Bob Swartz acting as Mayor and host. The show was made up of interviews with interesting people from the Winnipeg area, e.g., one show featured Indonesia and some Indonesians who had settled in Winnipeg and opened an Indonesian restaurant. National dances were performed and some songs were sung. Intermittently the Mayor asked questions about customs of the people and the geography of the many islands, large and small, which make up the republic. Stories were read and skits performed by the puppets. The show ran for one hour and was produced and directed by Aaron K. Johnston.
