The series was directed and produced by John Horton and Mark V. Productions. The puppets were created by Dann O'Quinn. Six episodes, one per volume, were released by Televidics Productions. The show contained puppets that would teach children letters, numbers, and other educational subjects. It also contained some short animated and live action segments like ''Sesame Street'' as well. Most likely due to very poor sales and negative reviews, the series was cut short and was cancelled sometime in 1988.

History

Peppermint Park was an American direct-to-video children's show released in 1987. Six volumes of the series were released. The show had many similarities to Sesame Street, in that it was a mixture of live action and puppets. Characters included Ernie (not to be confused with the character from Sesame Street), who sang a song about the letter M, and Piggle, a pig with a big appetite. The show's most recent mentioning was in a crossover with PhantomStrider and Blameitonjorge on the "Top 10 Creepiest Kids Characters" video.[1]

The series was directed and produced by John Horton and Mark V. Productions. The puppets were created by Dann O'Quinn. Six episodes, one per volume, were released by Televidics Productions. The show contained puppets that would teach children letters, numbers, and other educational subjects. It also contained some short animated and live action segments like Sesame Street as well. Most likely due to very poor sales and negative reviews, the series was cut short and was cancelled sometime in 1988. The six volumes released on VHS additionally went out of print at this point as well.

Modern viewers have called the show a blatant ripoff of Sesame Street.[2] Many people have also made memes and YouTube Poops on the show.[3]
