The Crayon Box (partially found puppet TV series; 1997-1998)
In 1997, The Crayon Box, a poem by Shane Derolf about diversity, was adapted into three mediums: a best-selling children's book, an animated short film, and a puppet show.
While the first two adaptations are well-known among children of the 1990s and easy to find, the puppet show has been lingering in obscurity since it stopped airing in syndication alongside Bananas in Pajamas and on YTV by itself.
The show focused on a group of toy puppets who acted out popular stories. Aside from one episode and copies of a tie-in book being sold on Amazon, the show is currently very hard to find.
