Anyone else watch OWL/TV in the 80′s? It was a Canadian kids show that focused on science and nature, based on the popular OWL magazines. Does anyone remember the name of the creepy talking skeleton?
I often watched it and can still remember the theme song…if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic for it, here it is:
While the show ran from 1985-1994, the magazines are still going strong. These award winning magazines, published monthly, cover a variety of topics, from science, nature, animals, current events, and culture, to puzzles, activities, stories, comics, and more. Packed with illustrations and photos, these magazines are very popular with Canadian children.
Chirp, chickaDEE and Owl Magazines are all part of Owlkids, Each magazine is geared toward a different age group: Chirp for ages 3-6, chickDEE ages 6-9, and Owl for ages 9-12.
