Captain Noah Anniversary Special
September 9, 2005 (WPVI) -- It was 35 years ago when children across the Delaware Valley set sail with Captain Noah and his magical ark.
A huge celebration is in the works, and as Karen Rogers reports, you can play a major role in a magical way.
A special anniversary is coming up for kids who grew up in the Delaware Valley in the 70's and 80's - and you can be a part of the celebration. It's hard to believe that it was 35 years ago that the beloved children's program Captain Noah and His Magical Ark set sail on the airwaves of Channel 6, known as WFIL back in 1970.
Its popularity quickly grew throughout the 70's and 80's.
Kids got a chance to learn from the show. And children even got a chance to participate by sending in their pictures.
While the show officially ended its voyage in 1995, a whole new generation of children will be able to enjoy Captain Noah and His Magical Ark, thanks to the Please Touch Museum. It's moving to a brand new spacious location in 2007 at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. And the ark is going with it!
To help celebrate this new location and the Captain's anniversary, 6abc is taping a 35th anniversary special "Sing a Rainbow" on Friday, September 23rd, and you can be a part of the audience. Ticket proceeds will benefit the new Please Touch Museum. Click here for more.
