Mr. Rogers and Reading Rainbow for sure. Also really enjoyed Square One I think it was called. They had a "Mathnet" show within the show, a spoof of Dragnet but with mathmaticians, that I thought was really cool and well put together.

Other than SS and Mr. Roger's...

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. Granted, it was a game show more than just educational.

I never watched the show but a few years earlier I LOVED the computer games

I had all my country and state flags down

I couldn't tell you any now if my life depended on it but at the time I was a master

I used to watch HBO Crashbox, it's for kids really, but I still watched it when it was on.

never saw that but for it’s time, it was a really innovative game for PC. Actually teaching kids to enjoy looking in encyclopedias. Ironically they were learning all about encyclopedias on a machine that would make them extinct but I digress
