#TBT #ThrowbackThursday #KiddieCabaret 1985-1989 preceded #MagicMikesCastle which ran 1989-1993, followed by #MagicMikeAndCompany 1993-1994. We didn't miss a beat as the sets, costumes, casts, and themes changed from series to series. We literally ran Kiddie Cabaret until July 1989, then the following week started Magic Mike's Castle, which would see a successful run until 1993. We used chroma-key for many of the segments of Kiddie Cabaret, which had a circus-y, vaudeville/carnivalesque/"blackout", "Laugh-in" quick-change-format. We would literally run from one end of the "Doctor Wizzo Knock-Knock Jokes" segment, with only a 5-second graphic-and-music bumper into the "Puppet Theatre", or "Clown College" segments, because we were recording "live-to-tape" with no editing back then!

Magic Mike Likey
In the '80's and '90's I hosted and produced in Winnipeg, Canada, the longest-running television show about magic, "Magic Mike's Castle". The show ended after nine years. Today, the "Magic Mike Likey Universe" continues on BlogTalk Radio, with "Magic Mike's Castle" and on Speaker Radio!
