Peppermint Park (found direct-to-VHS puppet series; 1987-1988)
Peppermint Park was an 80's puppet show that was released straight to VHS sometime between the early 80's and early 90's. It had mainly limited releases normally published by low-money companies and was produced by Mark V Productions.
The show was a clone of Sesame Street featuring doll-headed puppets teaching lessons such as letters, colors and numbers. The show's most recent mentioning was by Blameitonjorge on his Top 20 Unintentionally Disturbing Kid's Shows From Around The World.
Because of the shows rarity, only a few clips currently exist on the internet including the opening sequence. The show was produced by Mark V Productions. It is unknown if full episodes exist.
Some known information involves some of the sketches. Ernie loves the letter M and sings a song describing it with words that begin with M. There is also Manyard who sings about being blue to teach other meanings of the word blue.
There was also a Scarecrow, and a video about the gang showcasing bubbles, stoplights, and crackers. No one knows what happened with the franchise.
No full VHS copies exist online; there are only minutes of clips from random episodes available online.
The Volume 1 and Volume 3 VHS tapes of the series are currently available on amazon.
