I watched this show religiously from when I was ~2 and a half (I'm told; I don't actually remember ) to when I was 4 or 5 and my local PBS station (ha) stopped showing it. Yeah, I'm still mad after 15+ years. I still got to watch it occasionally since our library had tapes of it, though. When I was a little older, my parents bought me an omnibus of the original stories that I also loved.
Oh, and Diesel 10 scared me so much I had to leave the theater after about 5 minutes.
