The Goodnight Kiwi

...Just for Jay.


  1. That was so cute.....much better than any national anthem. Of course with infomercials and most stations broadcasting for 24 hrs anyway, the days of seeing an old fashioned 'close down' sequence are long gone.

    In NZ is that little cartoon followed by several hours of showing sheep jumping over a fence ?!

  2. It IS cute Silverback. I don't watch TV these days but I don't think they play it any more...
    The sheep idea is great!

  3. Oh! It's TV Kiwi!! Oh!! You found him for me!!

    Gosh, that brings back the memories! Thank you so much!

    Ooh, I can't stop smiling! :D

    But wait ... what do you mean, they don't play it anymore??

  4. Well, I don't watch TV these days... But, even if they do close down - ie TV 'stops', I suspect the goodnight Kiwi is just too innocent and sweet for today's cynical and worldly audiences.

    Glad you enjoyed him.
