I was explaining to my 22-year-old daughter why I call her Pooky, and I was describing an old puppet-type show that we watched on cable in the early-mid eighties. I simply cannot remember what it was called, or much about it, except I think one character was Pooky (or Pookie) and the other might be Sooky or something. Anyhow, one character appeared to be made out of a length of plastic dryer vent with sort of a clown costume ruffle, and they both had high, fakey voices, and I think the one didn’t really say anything but nonsense noises. It was a short program that was part of a longer children’s show, and I’m almost positive it was neither American or British-made. I think it was designed for the 1-4 year-old audience, as there was a lot of giggling and no real plots.
Any ideas? If I saw the characters again I’d know for sure, but Goggling Pooky just gets me Garfield’s Teddy bear. Thanks for your help…I know someone in Doperland knows exactly what show I mean!
