Synopsis: the show was about a wandering dog that would help people in need and sometimes help solve crimes and mysteries. He didn't talk or anything, it was usually more about him pointing people in the right direction. I remember it being very entertaining and contained positive messages for youth. Catchy intro song, I still remember the lyrics! It was one of those rare TV shows that appealed to kids and parents alike.
Synopsis: set in a department store, a female employee discovers that one of the manikins is capable of becoming human, but only when nobody (except her) is watching and he is wearing a magic hat. There is also a night security guard (a puppet) and a talking mouse (also a puppet). After the department store closes they go on nightly imaginary adventures containing educational and positive messages emphasising tolerance, respect, and self-esteem. Occasionally some basic reading and math skills, too.
I really enjoyed both. Can't choose! IMO Canadian Children's Programming at its best, and almost no commercials. Gotta love it.
A-Team is a winner, hard to beat MacGyver, but the number one show I remember is Manimal. I loved it when I was young, but I saw some re-runs a few years ago and now I know why it didn't last very long.
I thought that was a great show! I was surprised that it vanished so quickly. It was, of course, a take off on the Indiana Jones fever of the time. Given the limitations of a TV budget I think it did wonderful job of creating this world you coulkd get involved in -- romance and adventure!
Now I am sad.

Anyone know anything about THESE? I suspect some low-quality screen capture off of a TV broadcast.
