The Elephant Show - Children's TV Show, Canada

February 20, 2013

Graphic design poster for Sharon, Lois & Bram's Elephant Show
My design this week is to honour Sharon, Lois & Bram's Elephant Show, my absolute favourite tv show growing up. It ran in Canada on CBC from 1984-88 and featured three adults and a giant stuffed elephant who sang songs and taught kids what I'm sure were very important life lessons.

You'll notice we're organizing our collaborative design posts a little differently than before as we still get questions about how the designs actually work. As it was my turn to start this week, I did the original design and have posted it here. Then Charlotte will post her South African version, based on my original Canadian design, later on in the week. We hope this will clear up any confusion but please let us know your thoughts!

We're also looking to turn some of our collaborative designs into series. So, if you have any other favourite children's shows please comment and let us know and we'll do more designs for this series based on your suggestions.

For now, I'll leave you with Skinnamarink, the closer for every Elephant Show. I'm not ashamed to admit I can still sing along to every word...


  1. This is so great, but you're making me feel old ;)

    1. I know right?! I was shocked to see it stopped airing in 88.

  2. Love the video! How many times did you see these episodes?!?
