    I am looking for anyone who might have any information about a kid's
    TV program called "Arthur And Company" which aired on WPLG 10 Miami,
    FL in the early 1980's.

    It aired on Saturday mornings at 6:30 am, and featured a group of
    puppets who ran their own television station. They often shot
    segments with the puppets at Miami-area elementary schools.

    I tried going through WPLG and Post-Newsweek (their parent company at
    the time) for archive tapes - they told me that the show had never
    been archived.

    Are any of you familiar with the South Florida puppeteer who was
    involved with this TV show? I remember in the opening credits, they mentioned his/her surname but it's been almost 20 years.

    Thank you for your help.

    There's a short clip on youtube and from the credits it looks like the puppeteer is Camma Ward. I remember this show because on Saturday morning it was the first show to kick off the cartoon binge. I remember it was still dark when it was on.
    Bittersweet nostalgia. :)

    I have fond memories of this show. Watched all the time at my grandmother's house. I would love to see this again. I remember one episode when 'Sid," I believe that was his name, drank too many sodas, and ended up wearing a 'soda can' necklace around his
    neck. He was kind of nightmarish looking. There was also a Murray or a Mort? Somebody out there must have a few episodes saved.
