Does anyone else remember this? It's The Write Channel, a 10-minute show about grammar and proper puncuation that ran on PBS throughout the '80s. I loved it! But for years I couldn't remember the title, and was unable to find it through my very weird google searches ("educational talking grasshopper thing"). Then I remembered the magic words: Palabra jot! Palabra jot!
My second-favorite PBS show from that period, besides The Joy of Painting, was Gather 'Round, fairytales told by a guy who did all the female voices in a scratchy falsetto and illustrated with chalk. I also dug Reading Rainbow and Slim Goodbody (a man in a body stocking that showed the internal organs).
