    I remember watching Really Rosie on PBS channel with my brothers , back then good quality shows for children and making learning experience too! My favorite is alligator song!

  3. cellobus

    Watched this with our kids. I was just a little too old for this when it came out, but it was not widely available anyway.

  4. DJ Funtime Foxy

    I remember kindergarten, I moved to a new school and every Friday my class would head to another class to watch cartoons and sing songs. This was one of them. My teacher even put it on our class CD. Now I'm half way through my freshman year of high school and I miss the good days. 😭

    DJ Funtime Foxy I remember in 1996 we sang this every morning in Mrs Fernandez kindergarten class .. I remember she moved to Texas when I was I in the second grade . So I went back to say good bye ... I still remember how she looks and how cool she was ... we even read green eggs and ham .. and she decided to have us actually cook green eggs and ham I haven’t talked about that in a while ... where ever you are Mrs Fernandez thank you for the memories that you bought in short time at North country elementary school in Miami

    As kids, me and my brother watched this all the time! We had always misheard “S: Shockingly Spoiled.” We thought she was saying “S: Sucking Estoils.” We didn’t even know what “estoils” were so we just assumed they were those lollipops things! Good times!!
