End and. I. Think. That. Was it. Nothing. That. Says. Anything. At.
All. They only want to see me spell zoom with my hands. Sure why not. Oh oh oh oh. I am right. I. Here's a game sent in by Kelly McCarthy of Manchester New Hampshire. See if you can figure out the rules as we play the minister's cat. This cat is an amazing. I just want to get
a.. Ministers are awful. Yes and the ministers cat is an animal. And I live on hearsay. Oh I know I said that's OK. I know you know I just I guess that is begins with me. I. Like the. Character. Like they are ready. For. Knowledge just. Concrete. Goals.
No no I was wrong. This cat is a discontent I think is that right now.
The way it was it. Was. Too much. I. Know. Lots of kids wrote in ideas on how to make hand puppets and I'm going to show you one way to make them. All you need is some young some tape and a couple of magic markers. For a shoot and I'm going to draw the lips. I like my guy. Now the eyes. Now the eyebrows.
Now I need for some here some yarn and some tape. And you just stick that on. And that's all you have to do. You can make it laugh and you can make funny faces with. See you can make it happy. Say that again you do that. I. Tried it at home. Right you know you're a girl. Right. Dear zoom I have a sister Beth who has been writing Morgan horses since she was about five years old. CHENEY You know those. Morgans which came from New England are the first American breed of horses to the white. House staff I think would make a great soon guest sign
Jackson. Who for lack looks like a mess. OK let's go. When I trained Charlie for a show I have to work not only on how he performs but also on how I handle him. So the training period is really for both of us. When I'm training chali to do it feels great I need to use my commands of my hands my legs very accurately so the heat said to do is surf will see you nice and rounded
so they're usually about the same size. Good boy very good. For you. Take. Me. Through the post. With Charlie I have to work on the stretching exercises because when we're in the shelling you line up and the judge comes to look at you. You want your horse to look is best. Good. Good boy. Nice easy Jim. OK good. I feel proud of bad training Charlie because when he goes to a show and does well even if he doesn't get a ribbon as long as he pleases me it does make me feel good because I think that I have done something to make him a good horse. After working with Charlie for an afternoon I loved this going up in the
woods and letting him go and yelping up the road. Sometimes Charlie and I are just in our own will because nobody's theory. I can just sit back on him and let him take me for. Just. He's my friend because if I get him in a war I want tox out more with somebody but it's not something that go until my sister or my parents or my friends or anything but I want to tell somebody that won't repeat it to anybody. Then I go out and I can attack you championing the way I'll never tell anybody. 6 ft.

Poor little Mildred sat in her chair waiting for her boyfriend pulling on her hair. Oh where oh where is Tommy. It's the third time he didn't come. He's probably out with
another girl where I stay boy home all these nights while standing me up Peter in the time of his life. By the time I get to him he'll probably have a wife not far from there another house is no good boyfriend Tommy mouse. Where is Mildred. She's late again. My anger is getting worse. If she doesn't come in a few more minutes I'm going to start to curse. But before my anger makes me fall I think I'll give her a little call. While Tom is having a ball I think I'll give him a little car. This is a busy busy day I can't get through a busy signal that sign is bare. Now I'm getting really name. He's probably calling a girl with a real nice name. By the time I get to him he'll be
free. So my understanding to our Loverboy. There really makes me mad when I see her shake will be real sad. So it's boyfriend Tommy mouse so they're off to go to Mildred's house.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
