Mr. Cappelli, 61, starred in the series, which featured music, how-to segments and a studio audience of children ages 3-7. The show was syndicated in other local TV markets and ran on Nickelodeon in 1993 and 1994.
Mr. Cappelli still gets recognized from the program.
“Everywhere I go people remember the show,” he said. “Kids are still kids, the material is still the same. Maybe there is an audience and a much bigger audience because of the Internet.”
In addition to airing on WBGN, Mr. Cappelli is about to launch a website where visitors can buy episodes of the series as well as music from the program and from his children’s albums with A&M records (Mr. Cappelli also struck a deal with the record company for his music), including a song about Roberto Clemente.
Songs cost 80 cents, episodes of the show can be downloaded for $11.99, “How-to” videos cost $3.25, music videos sell for $5.99 (except the Clemente video, which goes for $12, with some proceeds earmarked for charity) and sheet music will cost $2.50.
