Isn’t it funny how something in your day-to-day can instantly remind you of something from your childhood? I was at work today when Crystal had mentioned to me a sushi restaurant in the city called “Zushi Puzzle.” I hadn’t thought about my favorite childhood show since I was probably a kid, but immediately was reminded of The Puzzle Place! I was in love with this show like I loved Sesame Street and something that was really important to me even back then, was seeing another character that looked like me. I didn’t know it then, but I certainly know it now and understand why Julie Wu was my favorite character of them all. Our favorites are always the ones that can identify with us in some way or another. Anyways, I’m not sure if anyone watched this growing up, but looking back I’m impressed with how diverse their characters were. Well done, PBS!
