What’s the Story Wishbone

Wishbone was such a great show because it brought classic literature to life. At a very young age it made amazing works of fiction like Oliver Twist, Moby Dick, and Gulliver’s Travels, something fun and exciting. Some of the books featured on this show are very challenging literary feats, and I love that they did not stick to easy reads. Inspiring young kids and adults to read challenging works of fiction in such a creative way was brilliant. Plus who doesn’t love a Jack Russell Terrier who dresses up and does tricks, the cuteness was like media glue!

I know that watching these shows helped shape me into the reader I am today. In my trip down memory lane I ended up finding these delightful little books, and I want them all!

I loved the show Wishbone growing up, and a fellow blogger inspired me to post about it, thank you for the spark L. Boogie! Check out their blog here.
Fun Fact:  Wishbone’s real life name was “Soccer” and he won the role of Wishbone because out of 100 dog auditions, he was the most expressive.

  1. I loved the show and the box series. I think I must still have a box of both somewhere in the basement. I still haven’t figured out a good way to explain that my first interaction with some classic stories was through a dog. (Wishbone will always be my favorite version of Romeo.)

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

  2. I loved Wishbone. They aired it here in the UK. I loved the credits too with Wishbone bouncing and catching the ball himself :). It really was an amazing show. All these years later I love reading classics, now I’m wondering if Wishbone was the trigger 😮 :D!
