Some of your favorite Christian children's shows


On Thursday's morning show, we covered classic Christian children's shows and had fun reminiscing.

Luckily, you don't have to dust off the VHS player to still enjoy some of these shows. We've put together some great videos here so you can show your kids what our entertainment used to be like.

Circle square

Paulette started with a text message via the Shine Dental Talk & Text Line. Circle square was her favorite. The show was a Canadian production and ran from 1974 to 1986.

Circle square featured human actors interacting with puppets and featured singing and storylines that taught Bible lessons to young people.


In the 80s, puppet and child labor went hand in hand Gerbert was no exception. The title character was an orange child (don't worry, that was the doll) who struggled with all the typical things little children do, like whether or not to clean their room when asked.

And of course there were plenty of songs that taught important moral lessons.

In the US it aired on CBN television, but many Canadians had VHS copies in their local Christian bookstores.

McGee and me!

Now we move from puppets to cartoon characters that come to life and interact with people. The show centers on young Nicholas Martin and his cartoon creation McGee, who comes to life and serves as Nick's conscience.

Nick faces many challenges including temptations, bullies and more. McGee is a constant companion and experiences many adventures of his own.

A total of 12 episodes and a special were produced by Focus on the Family.

The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible

Pastor Cher Paulson Living Bible Students I called with this one. The Greatest Adventure: Stories from the Bible was a cartoon released direct-to-video by Hanna-Barbera.

The focus was on two young archaeologists, Derek and Margo, joined by “their nomad friend” Moki. While the three were working on an archaeological dig, they came across “an ancient ruin that turns out to be a portal through time.” In each episode, the three young people were led through the portal into a different biblical story in which the accounts of the Old and New Testaments were brought to life. The main characters often interacted with the biblical characters.

A total of 13 episodes were released between 1985 and 1992.
