From 1981 to 1987, Today's Special entertained kids of all ages. With its quirky characters, different segments and valuable lessons to learn, we loved watching it every day after school. However, we definitely didn't notice how weird it was back then, and it only gets weirder the older we get. Here's 10 reasons why.

1) For starters, it took place in a closed department store
