Hi Hello Show was a Saturday morning children's program broadcast in Australia that mixed actors, extensive costumes, and puppets. With full musical numbers featuring songs and both dancing adult and children performers, David Dixon III both hosted and sang throughout the show's run. Popular characters like Agro, Sunshine and Sharon, Tip and Top, and Bruce the Blow Fly kept children tuning in throughout the latter portion of the 1980s. Like many variety programs of the era, Hi Hello Show combined entertainment with lessons, balancing the comedic and musical aspects of the show with valuable lessons for children. The whimsical situations and youth-centered writing of the program made it a hit with many young Australians during its original broadcast, many of them continuing to remember the show today. Several of the young performers featured on the show have gone on to bigger careers in entertainment, such as singer and musician Elizabeth Papalia and actor and composer Anna-Maria La Spina.
