Peter and his toybox

Randomly i remember things from my childhood - my memory isnt the greatest so when i do i try to write it down or record it somehow so i can remember later. I used to have a journal on my computer but then i decided to password protect it and guess what i forgot - yepp the password. Please if you know how to crack/ change the password on a word document without remembering the old password - please holla at me abeg.

Anyways this morning, im at my boss's cube talking to him about something and then randomly i look at his nametag and i start to remember 'Peter and his toybox.' Who remembers this tv show from eons ago? I also remember the different languages Peter and his toybox were translated to when the intro started playing - i even remember one - "Sundu kala Peter".

haha!!! I was wondering the same thing. Peter and his toybox ke????

As for the p/word protection... Hmmm... right click on the document (in windows explore or wherever) and check if you can change the settings there...

Weird cos even if a doc is p/word protected, you should be able to open it and copy its contents.

"Sundu kala peter" (don't know what it meant but it was part of the theme music/poem b4 the show)..."when peters here theres lot to see/ things colourful, bright and new/ he shows them all to u and me..."
he was an old science type guy and i think he had a dog (he was like the oldman in fraggle rock) i think it was a german show, like a lot of stuff on NTA back in the day. the only episode i remember had something to with a colony of ants.
talking of ants do u remember vision on'?

Yea, and Peter used to say in the end .. switch off your television, making that 'turning off the knob' sign with his hand. I wish I could find that show somewhere.

lol...I remember Peter and his toybox, and I could even say the whole "intro thing" (which included sundu kala peter) by heart. It was one of those beautiful educational programmes from Transtel tv, Germany. There were tons of them back then and ...get this...I knew and watched every one of them...lol

Sundu kala Peter - Great show indeed. It was horribly dubbed over though. I just loved watching that show and seeing all the cool inventions of Peter.

Gosh... i didnt know u all are looking for it..

i am a fan of the show..

it was shown in Malaysia.. i really like Peter's creativity and antics..

I remembered the 3 wheel bicycle, the BIG magnet until it was stuck on a car, the weather was the funniest...

another spinoff was "Sammi and his science lab".. he also reminds me of Peter..

i wish they could show this kind of shows today... they are great !!

Hi! It was broadcasted here in Peru too, around 15 years ago. That programme was really amazing. I'd like to watch it again. "Peter y su cajón de juguetes" was its name here.
