PBS (ended 2000)
This PBS one-hit wonder features former Playboy stars Audrey and Judy Landers, leading the "Buggsters" on adventures through learning, from various life lessons (expressing your feelings, good hygiene habits, good sportsmanship, etc.) and topics of children's interest (farm animals, dinosaurs, music, etc.), with some help from the mascots:
UNCLE HUGGABUG - a four-armed blue bug, with a cowboy hat (and twang, to boot), who enjoys a good "power-packed hug"
MISS OOPS-A-DAISY - a clumsy pink flower who reminds kids that making mistakes is OK, though she makes some herself
AUNTIE BUMBLE - a grandmotherly bee, who explains friendship, caring, and other values to the Buggsters
LOVEY-DOVEY - a Jamaican dove (tells the story, but nothing more)
It appeared on select PBS stations, such as WLVT (Lehigh Valley, PA) and WNYE (Brooklyn, NY), from 1995-2001. It can still be seen today on KTV (a Christian channel).
