Romper Room was a daily half-hour program for pre-school children. An invited group of children took part in each show, which had several regular features including Mr. Doo-Bee, Paddington Bear, the Magic Mirror and Doc, whose main concerns were health and safety regulations for children. Basic physical activity to encourage an active lifestyle and the maintenance of good health was a regular part of the program.
Romper Room was franchised instead of syndicated, so local stations could produce their own versions. But in 1972, CTV’s Kitchener affiliate CKCO-TV took responsibility for producing the series for all CTV affiliates.
The series became known as Romper Room and Friends in 1981 and was cancelled in 1992 because CTV did not renew its contract with the show's producer, CKCO-TV. At that time, the Canadian Romper Room was the only version still in production in the world. Miss Fran (Fran Pappert) was the longest-serving Romper Room teacher in North America.
