Help remembering a kids show...

So today I watched the first episode of Square One TV for the first time in years. That show is amazing.

Anyway, it reminded me of a similar show (maybe it was even later episodes of Square One... but I doubt it). All I can remember about it is that the had a giant canvas, and every episode (I think...) they would draw on it, adding to the overall drawing. I want to say it was a white canvas, and they only used black sharpies, but I'm probably wrong about that.

Any ideas?

Nope. Wasn't a game show. More of a kids-focused edu-tainment kind of thing. The canvas that they drew on was 'permanent' and became more and more detailed as they added do it. At least, that's how I remember it.

Thanks!

Oh man, I haven't thought of Square One in decades. Mathman, Oops, Mathnet...I loved that show. That and 3-2-1 Contact were common viewing for me.

If I remember right he would say something like, "Draw, draw, draw, 15 or 20 minutes a day" at the end of the show too.

I loved SquareOne and MathNet too. Probably the only reason I remember the Fibonacci sequence.

Square One was great. Had Reg E. Cathey in it as well.

^ that dude is legendary.

After watching three episodes of Square One TV today, I have to say that most of the skits are pretty weak, but the Mathnet stuff is fantastic. Seriously, I strongly recommend rewatching those, if nothing else. There's some hilarious humor in those scenes.
