Kids’ Writes ran on Nickelodeon from 1981-83. In it, a troupe of actors acted out stories sent in by young viewers. I haven’t been able to find any clips of this show, and I found only this one picture of the cast:
Despite the lack of corroborating media, I still have solid memories of this show. My best memory comes from what was probably a very early Saturday or Sunday morning. I was watching this program at that time with a friend who had stayed the night at my house. The show opened with two of the Kids’ Writes actors doing an improvisational bit. Someone in the live audience asked them to act as a bunny. The actors huddled for a moment, then the male held the bushy-headed female over his back upside down. This put her legs over his head in a way that somewhat resembled bunny ears. He then turned around to reveal that her bushy head was positioned over his behind like a bunny tail. She then shook her head back and forth to complete the illusion. To me, this was an innocent thing. My more potty-minded friend, though, laughed at the fact that the woman’s face was put into the man’s posterior, and saw her head shakes as evidence that it wasn’t such a pleasant place to be. I can partially understand that, I guess, but to me it was still innocent and the Kids’ Writes actors seemed very clever.
