The Great Space Coaster




The Great Space Coaster
 1983 | Sunbow Productions

One of the more interesting things that the Peabody Board does during its meetings is to have a look at what is going on in the world of television programs produced for children. This year the Board was captivated by The Great Space Coaster, a mixture of animation, puppets, live action, music, and guest stars that combines to make an appealing and instructive program. Each segment looks at problems which children may encounter and the role-players seek to provide constructive models for children to follow. Others have recognized The Great Space Coaster in a variety of ways. Hasbro Industries and the Kellogg Company have sponsored this exceptional series for more than five seasons. Now, a Peabody Award for quality children’s programming to Sunbow Productions for The Great Space Coaster.
