12 Ways "Today's Special" Was The Most WTF Kids' Show Ever
Hocus Pocus Alimagocus!
OK, it's time to state the obvious: Today's Special is a national treasure.
The show's whole premise was a lady hanging out with puppets, a mouse, and an enchanted mannequin in a department store every night.
Remember that childhood fear you had that creepy mannequins were actually just waiting to reach out and grab you? This show completely fed into that.
Jeff's entire ability to be alive depends on his magic hat.
Everyone wore the same clothes in every episode.
The random Mother Goose in the intro.
Then there was Muffy, aka bringer of nightmares.
And that mime lady who dressed like an infant.
Really, any time an adult was dressed as a baby.
From time to time, we also got these out-of-the-blue cartoon interruptions.
That guy being responsible for security.
And TXL — the intelligent computer.
And don't forget about Muffy's house.
