About this item

Description The Gala Poochie Quiz dominates this 15 minute show, but first Mr. Deetle Dootle stops by in need of assistance with understanding a scrambled Rootie Kazootie-Gram. Rootie uses his trusty Magic Kazootie to unscramble the message from the show’s sponsor, Silvercup bread. After the Gala Poochie Quiz, Big Todd introduces Rootie, Polka Dottie, and Gala Poochie to pay tribute to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II of England. The four on-screen characters sing a song about the occasion.
