    I figured that sense this is a CTW show that it would be appropriate to put in this section. So this thread is dedicated to the science show that was one of the best ones PBS has ever had in my opinion. Share your memories or feel feel to discuss the show or what it meant to you. (For those of you who remember or grew up with it.) So here's to you 3-2-1 Contact!

    Here's a clip about how light and color work at a KISS concert.

    Classic '80s TV goodness that came on after Sesame Street everyday, always loved it, hehe.

    I have to say that I really loved the classroom version as well! When I was little this was one of my favorites and science ended up being my favorite subject in school!

    Here's a clip about the making of the theme song.

    Bloodhound Gang!

    The bloodhound gang was one of the best segments of the show and I used to not be able to wait for it come on while watching an episode. But here's the episode The Case of the Thing in the Trunk. Notice how he didn't have the gun turned directly at the kids. You know I can't help but think that a lot of this could be solved so muhc sooner and quicker if they just had sell phones! But then again, what fun would that be? heh!

    Part one

    part two

    There were a couple of SS episodes in the early 80's were Mr. Hooper's brother came to visit and the actor who played him played the older theif in the Bloodhound episode you mentioned.

    Another from that time was The Case Of Mr. Q.

    It was about some thief who worked his way into some lab that had something to do with pigeons and something else and this thief who's real name was Mr. Booster used the pigeons to steal whatever it was he wanted.

    Maybe that is the origin of the name of the band "The Bloodhound Gang".
    I really don't think that the KISS concert was the best example, cause the band with the make up and everything, could freakout little kids. Lol.

    It is where the band got their name by the way. And this show was for older kids then Sesame street was. As far as for it scaring little children, it was for older children... More around the eight-ish through twelve crowd...

    Here is the shows second theme.


    By the way Mike. Here is "The Case of Mr. QuickFingers" if this is the one you're talking about.

    Part one

    Part two

    Brings back instant memories!

    What do you mean by is this how the band got their name?
  10. Ilikemuppets

    Ilikemuppets New Member

    Well, there is a band with the same name and they admittedly got the name from the Bloodhound Gang Segment from 3-2-1 contact.

    Here's a segment from the show having to do with animal eye's. It's entitled "Jeepers Creepers"! I remember this one so well!

    Sorry but that wasn't the same episode I was referring to.

    Anyway another thing I noticed that it seemed like most of TBHG episodes were filmed on days with little or no sun.

    Just like the SS number painting films.

    Of course I didn't watch any of the following 321 Contact years other than season 1.

    I remembered the Bloodhound Gang! It is my favorite 3-2-1 Contact! Oh! Do you remember I forgot who played Mark in 3-2-1 Contact!

    mikebennidict New Member

    Think his name was Leone Grant.

    At least I got his first name right.


    thanks for the info!

    I don't remember much about the tv show, but I got the magazine for years. I can't for the life of me remember what they changed the name to....:confused:
  17. mikebennidict

    mikebennidict New Member

    They never changed the name of the show.

    Actually, I meant the magazine. I could have sworn they called it something different at one point....
