I remember seeing this show many times when I was a youngster growing up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida! It was called "Arthur and Company," and it was  produced by WPLG Miami (channel 10 in the local area). It also aired on the Post-Newsweek owned stations during most of the 1970's. Unfortunately, no footage was officially archived. Hopefully, privately recorded footage may one day be discovered.

I was born in the 70's, but I doubt any show made it over the ocean- safe for sesame street, of course.
But I'd like to welcome you anyway!

You're correct! And thank you, and finally someone uploaded on youtube a recording of a christmas special for the show. This is the only copy of these puppets to have surfaced to my knowledge. I forgot so many of the other characters. Jack Metzger (who I mistook for Skipper Chuck) is the host and appears @ around the 3:01 mark

Thank you for posting this video. This show was not a blast from my past, since I grew up in the opposite corner of the U.X in the Seattle area, but it was still kind of nostalgic, seeing the cigarette machine prop around the 5:15 mark. How times change!
