Hobbledehoy (Series)

Aka: Hobble De Hoy

Hobbledehoy was a magazine show for CBC Montreal produced by Denyse Adam with host Ian Finlay for children of the middle years. The show, written by Arnie Greenberg, was a combination of short items ranging from crafts to takeoffs on gourmet cooking to "kid-jokes and limericks," interesting out-of-the-way news items, and guessing games. The sequences were well designed, leaving the viewer with a clear sense of comprehension. At the same time the show moved along at a fast but rhythmic pace. The series aired for 9 seasons.
