Little Wendy Tales



Via Wiki:
Between the Lions is a PBS Kids' puppet show designed to promote reading. The show is a co-production between WGBH in Boston and Sirius Thinking, Ltd., in New York City, in association with Jim Henson Television. The show has won seven Daytime Emmy awards between 2001 and 2007. The target audience is children 4 to 7 years old.

Between the Lions often makes wild parodies of (often children's) programming. The title itself is a twofold pun, first on the phrase "between the lines", the second is that many classic library buildings have two lions separated by the main entrance. Thus in order to enter the library, you must go "between the lions". Some recurring segments include:

Little Wendy Tales

A girl with black hair tied in pigtails (a parody of Sailor Moon, among other anime clichés) reads the misadventures found in Little Wendy Tales when sitting next to her white cat Snuggles. In classic fashion, the big-eyed girl transforms herself into The Punctuator and saves Wendy by means of switching around the punctuation, altering the scene in the process. She rereads the altered adventures after correcting the sentences.






So sorry that this video isn't complete, but it's virtually THE ONLY video of this mini episode in the ENTIRE world wide web. (EDIT: HT found the second half of it!).The super lovely and awesome Moonie HT remembered about this little parody and it took us a while but we found this vid. There isn't much info available and as much as I would LOVE to show you more of this and write up a whole essay on the origins of this animation, it's really not a big deal, just a small parody....and that's all!! :p

Super Cute find HT!! <3 Many thankies!!!
