The Magic Garden Lives On In All Of Us

Carole, Paula and Sherlock

Last night while sitting with a few of my Generation X brethren the conversation turned to some of the television shows from our youth.

One show that came up was The Magic Garden and I was surprised to learn from the discussion that the two women from the show, Carole and Paula, were actually locals. In fact, the puppet in the show, a squirrel named Sherlock, allegedly was lost in a fire in Mountainside where either Carole or Paula was living at the time. (I forgot who had him)

“Come to the garden of make-believe,
A magical garden of make-believe,
Where flowers chuckle and birds play tricks
And a magic tree grows lollipop sticks”

As corny as the show was, it was one of my favorites.
