Sharon, Lois and Bram's Elephant Show

The Elephant Show is a Canadian children's television show that featured the adventures of the Canadian singing trio Sharon, Lois & Bram and Elephant. Elephant doesn't speak but is voiced by a tuba, which conveys thoughts and mood by its pitch and inflection. The four are usually accompanied by a group of children and a sidekick, family entertainer Eric Nagler.

To refresh your memory every episode contained a concert segment, featuring the trio, Eric, and the Mammoth Band. They would sing songs and help children with their problems (including arguments, fear, and the failure of plans). In classic television fashion, they would either go for adventures around the town or stay home and have an adventure in their yard. Each episode concluded with the beloved children's song "Skinnamarink" 

For nostalgic reasons I have placed a video of the Skinnamarink song below to remind us of our younger selves.
