The Friendly Giant (1980)

For your viewing and listening pleasure. Oh, that melody.


  1. This is the first time that I've ever heard of this show.Did you watch it often? What other type of characters were on it? The giraffe is cute. I liked the furniture in the castle, it makes me wish that I had something like this to play with when I was a kid. Can't wait to see your other posts.

  2. Hi Lara: The Friendly Giant was a popular Canadian children's program that aired on CBC (TV network) from 1958 through to 1985. I watched it when I was really young. I only remember the giant and the giraffe more than anything and those wee chairs. But most of all I remember the theme song. It's magical. :)

    I was born in 1961 and remember the Friendly Giant as far back as I can think. We lived in Buffalo and watched a lot of Canadian broadcasts. The Giant was on the air long enough for my children to see him. I hear the Giant in my head when I re-arrange furniture ("and a rocking chair for someone who likes to rock...")and that boot! "Look up, way up". What a great show! It was intelligent and quirky and the cats had a jazz ensemble and it wasn't at all like the mindless childrens'programming today. Oh, I miss the Friendly Giant!
