Scoop And Doozie (partially found CBC puppet show; 1999-2002)
Scoop and Doozie was a children's puppet show that aired on CBC from 1999 to 2002, the show was about the everyday lives of Doozie, an orange toy bulldozer, Scoop, a yellow toy excavator, and Axel, a blue and red dump truck. The show also featured live-action segments that would teach kids about the world of construction and machinery.
Show Format[edit | edit source]
The show started out with the three machines, Axel, Scoop, and Doozie, doing something together when they encountered a problem. Upon this problem, they sometimes would go to the basement window of the house of the yard where the machines lived, and watch the owner of the house doing something to solve a similar problem. Other times the machines would go over to the fence posts to watch Fence TV (a video of real machines screened through a knothole). When the basement/Fence TV segment was done, the machines use what they had seen and heard to apply to the problem they had encountered.
