The What Was That Obscure Kid Show? Thread

    I have two I'd like to talk about:
    -One of them I'd only seen in the form a little toy while I was shopping one day but I remember thinking it was adorable and would love to use a picture of it one of my videos. It was this little blue Smurf-looking guy who I believe was called Moogle. I can't remember the rest of his name but it was a meaningful name that had something to do with his feet (I believe he may have had magical shoes or some foot-related power which was basically his main character trait). It wasn't Moogle from Final Fantasy because I know what that cute little critter looks like and it bares no resemblance to what I'm thinking of. I only read the brief character description that was available on the box of this toy but I do remember thinking it was somewhat funny when I was young due to how bizarre and unbelievably silly the concept sounded to me.
    -The next one was a Hannukah-related kid show about puppets that looked almost Muppet-y teaching about Jewish culture. I believe it was a one off special rather than an entire series but I can vaguely recall a menorah song in there. I remember thinking it was a very good idea to teach kids of other faiths about Jewish culture at a young age and it was a very cute, well made video. But I can't remember what it was called.

    I have another one (although the details are very vague):
    -I vaguely remember a Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network show (possibly 90s) about a green alien with three eyes or something like that. It looked kind of like one of the aliens from Toy Story that says
    "THE CLAAAAWWWWWW!" but only it was traditionally animated and I believe s/he may have held a laser gun? Does this sound familiar to anybody because the details of this "show" are so vague that I may have even dreamed it.

    This one I'm almost convinced that I dreamed it up but I also seem to remember a show about a green monster who lived under a kid's bed. The kid and the monster would go on adventures or something weird like that. I don't think the show was supposed to be scary because from what I can recall, I thought it was funny for some reason. Again, this had to be some weird dream I made up because when I was little, I used to have a lot of weird dreams about crazy cartoon-ish characters that my mind would somehow conjure up. One recurring almost nightmarish dream I had was about a pink Energizer Bunny-like rabbit that lived under my bed. It's probably something like that rather than a real show, but I'm just wondering whether this existed or not because the concept sounds like something a real kid show would use to stop kids from being afraid of monsters.

    Edit:It's not the Mercer Mayer animation, There's a Nightmare in My Closet by the way. I'm well aware of that short's existence and it's not at all what I'm thinking of. I felt the need to post that because I just now realized the similarities between the short and what I just posted.

    I REALLY want to see this one and I have no doubt that it's a real, legit cartoon:

    -I remember seeing this Halloween cartoon short at school when I was young. The majority of kids were scared of it but I thought it was awesome. It was about a Grandpa telling his grandchildren stories of the weird "monsters" he thought lived in his room as a child. Because I've always loved fictional creatures, I was impressed by the large variety of spooks that appeared in this little animation. They had everything from ghosts to vampires to monsters on stilts to talking peaches that scream (I clearly remember that one because of how ridiculous it sounded). The skit ended with the young Grandpa being awoken by his grandparents and eating ice cream with them. Does this sound familiar to anybody? It's one of those things that I thought was really funny at a young age and has stood out to me ever since but I can not find the name of it at all. Oh yeah, I also clearly remember that it was on a VHS compilation that contained other Halloween related short cartoons and songs.

    For that second one, is it the Disney cartoon Lloyd in Space? That's all I can think of based on your description.

    Yes, I'm almost certain that's the one.

    This wasn't a kid show, it was an adult comedy but anyway I vaguely remember this show that was kind of like Silent Library or Jack***. It was about people who would break stuff, hurt each other, perform ridiculous stunts, etc. I believe it was called Bam, the only thing I can remember is that it was extremely immature and my mom hated it. I seem to remember one episode where a guy smashes a window with a car. Now that I'm an adult, I'd probably think it's funny so I've been searching for the show lately and can't find anything about a show like this.

    This probably wasn't a kid show but it wasn't anything too dirty either. I vaguely remember an unusual cartoon sketch show (done in either CGI, stop motion, or puppet-type stuff. I forget which). I found it on YouTube so it could've been a web series. It was kind of like MAD and Robot Chicken where it used the real names of copyrighted characters. I only watched it once when I was young and I can't remember what it was called. The only three skits I can recall were parodies of Courage the Cowardly Dog, The Flintstones, and some sci-fi show/movie (probably Star Trek). I also seem to remember a character who was a talking clam that looked almost Clamantha from Fish Hooks. He/she was probably one of their original characters because I remember thinking it was a creative concept that I hadn't seen on anything else. I think the clam might have been a news reporter/sports commentator in the skit that I saw.

    I'm gonna bring this over from the "Questions about anything" thread:
    So, does anybody know what I'm talking about??
    It's been months and I still haven't gotten an answer... :cry:

    The show this creepypasta is referring to sounds really familiar. To the point where I'm almost positive it actually existed. Not only do I vaguely remember the show in question, I also used to quote the Boogeyman character all the time when I was a kid. I pretty much made the Boogeyman's catchphrase,
    "Here comes the Boogeyman,
    The Boogeyman will always come,
    The Boogeyman is scared of none!" into somewhat of a recurring quote in our household. We even have footage of me when I was like 9 or 10 years old wearing a werewolf mask and saying that quote repeatedly. I mean, If the show isn't real, where else would I have heard that quote? Does anybody recall something similar to this:

    Not a kid's show, but does anybody remember an adult swim show about a guy in a pink bunny suit who lived in somebody's house? It was a live action/costumed character hybrid sitcom that first aired around the same era as other kid show parodies like Wonder Showzen and Triumph the Insult Dog. I don't know why but for some reason, I think the bunny may have been played by Seth Green.

    There's a really old puppet show from another country (probably France) that I cannot find any evidence of online despite having seen it many years ago. It was all done in blacklight and the puppets were marionettes. The characters included a little girl, an old man, a big ugly wolf, and a bunch of little mushroom-like creatures (in fact, the show always started with these mushroom guys singing). I used to catch it on the International Channel on early Saturday mornings back in 2004-05. I don't know the exact year this show came out, but as it's shot on film (and in color), my guess is it's from the 1960s.

    I recently read the creepypasta story Corradine's Candelabra and it gave me a vague memory of some show I remember seeing when I was a kid. I believe it was on either Nick Jr. or Noggin (?) and it was about a little girl who went on all these cute, interesting imaginary adventures in her own room. I believe there was a talking candle in this show also. The only episode I slightly remember was most likely a Halloween special that involved three silly looking ghosts that almost resembled the Boos from Super Mario floating around in her basement or something. Now that I think about it, the anthropomorphic candle that I mentioned earlier could've been just a one episode thing as it may have had something to do with the ghosts. Ghosts making objects float around is an incredibly popular trope in those type of Halloween episodes so I wouldn't be surprised if the forementioned candle wasn't a recurring character. That image of the three Boo-esque ghosts has been popping in my head at random times for years now. It's just SO vivid but yet I can't remember practically anything else about the show. It's been driving me crazy for a while now and I just wanted to know if ANYBODY possibly recognizes what I'm talking about. That one vague memory honestly inspired me to come up with a fake [adult swim] show idea a few years ago called "Three Ghosties". It involved a trio of ghosts that play pranks on celebrities much in the vein of something like Punk'd except the animated version. So if I ever do end up pitching that idea to [adult swim] and it becomes successful, I need to know what the heck the show I'm basing it off of was called. I can't just be on stage holding an Emmy award saying,
    "I would like to thank the creator of...….y'know, that one show with ghosts for giving me the idea to create Three Ghosties," lol jk :p.

    I vaguely remember seeing a character on PBS show (not Sesame Street but a different one) that was a puppet goldfish that would pop up out of the water and say random things. I always thought he was from Teletubbies but I did research and found no mention of such a character. I also asked my mom recently if she remembers seeing a goldfish character on Teletubbies and she told me that the only non-Teletubby character she remembers from the show aside from the Sun Baby is Noo-Noo.

    I don't know what I could possibly be thinking of. I don't think it was a show in of itself but rather a recurring sketch or running gag on an already established show. Maybe it was from Between the Lions or something like that. I'm not sure and I was wondering if anybody could help me out here.

    It wasn't any variation of the goldfish from The Cat in the Hat btw.
