"Little Star" Was The Weirdest Show You Probably Don't Remember

Growing up, we had a lot of kids show to watch.

Some great, some not so great.

One of those "not so great" shows was something called Little Star.

It was an...odd...mix of both animation and terrifying puppets. The opening credits take you through space, where the planets are actually fruit? And a dog? Because that's OBVIOUSLY what happens in space.

Even on IMDB there's limited information on this show.

"The heroes live on "Mimosa", a beautiful well-equipped space station that travels through the galaxy. Little Star is a charming fairy space that follows a cheerful team during their most dangerous missions."

Ignoring the fact that the sentence features terrible grammar, what kind of "dangerous missions" could possible be happening where the Earth is literally a pear?

The show was released in Canada in 1994, and then made its way to Treehouse TV in the US around 1997.

This is the theme song. Anyone I've shown it to either has no memory of it whatsoever, or they remember changing the channel immediately when they heard the credits.


So what about you? Do you remember watching Little Star? Let us know!

The True Story Behind "The Sound of Music" Is Even Better Than Whiskers On Kittens

When Julie Andrews brought the sound of music down from the mountains and into our hearts, she brought with it a love for the real-life von Trapp family, who the story was based on. The movie follows the autobiography of the real Maria von Trapp, who was a nun that became a part of an Austrian family before the Nazi occupation in World War II. The film accurately portrays a lot about their lives and demeanor, but in Maria's published memoirs (that the film was based on) it is easy to see how much becomes simple Hollywood figment. Here are
