I think that this show is very awesome because I grew up with it, and I think that it is very useful for little children. I also like Steve/Joe/Kevin's listening skills because they are very funny. I hope it gets revived for a 7th season sometime in the future.

There's nothing educational except a dumb person named Steve or Joe - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Hallelujah someone has actually remembered the actual presenter on the UK version, it did come from America but had different versions.
