Reddy on Classic Northland Television

Mr. Toot and Reddy KilowattOh man, I think that’s the first time I’ve seen a life-size, live-action Reddy Kilowatt. Check it out, and be sure to watch the video:

Once upon a time, Northland TV stations made their own children’s show. The kids who watched those shows are now in their 40’s and 50’s but still fondly remember names like Captain Q and Mr. Toot. Dave Anderson tells us how a pair of fans is trying to preserve those memories…

“I’ve been doing research on this subject for nearly a decade now.” The biggest find was some actual Mr. Toot with Reddy Kilowatt footage found on an archaic reel to reel video tape. “We had to track down a company that had one of those old machines that could actually play that type of tape and have it transferred.”

“I bet I know what your favorite fish is. Electric eels!”
