Now that you know the words, you can sing along - Picture Pages. Expect the song to happily stick in your memory.
Picture Pages was a short, educational TV show where Bill Cosby would interact with you, the viewer, doing fun activities in an activity book. Picture Pages originated on Captain Kangaroo in the 1970s and then it spun off to its own show. You could get your Picture Pages puzzle booklets from local supermarket chains or send away for them. It was fun working with silly Bill Cosby (and his Mortimer Ichabod marker) as you completed each activity together. The way he interacted with you as you went through the activity book was like he was on the same page with you and in fact he was - Picture Pages.
You can play with Picture Pages,Fill your day with Picture Pages,‘Till Bill Cosby does another Picture Page with you!
If you were lucky enough to have experienced this show first hand, wasn’t it great?
I just wish I could have a Mortimer of my very own!
