"Peppermint Park": The scariest children's show ever?

I’m so glad my parents had the good sense to plop me in front of “Sesame Street” instead “Peppermint Park” to learn my ABCs. Did anyone catch this little-known children’s TV show in the mid-’80s? I don’t know about you, but this Ernie (not the adorable one from “Sesame Street”) would have given me nightmares for years to come. I had an active imagination. Actually, it might give me nightmares now. A puppet singing “mayonnaise?” Those hands. That face. Argghhhhhhhhh! No. Dear God. No. [The FW]
