Way back in the dusty recesses of my memory, I seem to have a recollection
that the Simon cartoons were used as a segment on a children's TV show. And
since we didn't get many channels when my children were growing up, I think
it must have been Captain Kangaroo (on CBS?). It would have been sometime
in the late 1970's or early 1980's.

Sorry I can't tell you how to get hold of a Captain Kangaroo video, but
maybe this will give you a place to start.
