The Letter People were created in 1972 by a group in Waterbury, Connecticut called New Dimensions in Education. The principles were simple: This was an educational show that taught children in kindergarten through first grade how to read using characters to represent letters of the alphabet. Theme Song: Come and meet the Letter People Come and visit in the family Words are made of Letter People A, B, C, D, Follow me The original Letter People were shaped in a quickly-identifiable fashion. All the consonants were called "Letter Boys," and the vowels were "Letter Girls." It was a perfect compliment to Title IX that Letter Girls had to be in every word the Letter People made. The Letter People television series was produced 1975-76 in the facilities of KETC in St. Louis. That station held TV distribution rights for the series, even after a "new generation" of Letter People came about in 1997. (By this tim

S01E08 What's the Catch? 00/00/0000 A new television station is starting up in Letter People Land. All sorts of dreams fill the heads of the Letter People, as they try songs, jokes, and juggling. But their truest talent is in their sounds, and how their sounds blend together. There's only one catch: Miss A has to be in all the ""sound catches"" for the time being.
S01E09 The Tryout 00/00/0000 All the Letter People show up at the new TV station to try their sound catches on Monty Swell. For the first time, all six Letter Boys make their sounds catch with Miss A. At Monty's suggestion, another Letter Boy stands on the other side of Miss A, and they make a word. It's the inspiration for a game show called The Catching Game.

They clutter their add-ons to Mr. S's super socks. Not all of them will come off, though. Mr. Z grants Mr. S the right to use the ""zipping zippers"" sound sometimes.
S01E21 The Squoosh 00/00/0000 Mr. V goes to the set of The Catching Game to explain his restriction (see Episode 20) to Monty Swell. He and other Letter People try to make the word ""vest,"" which is not easy to do in a clue box built for one. Mr. S and Mr. T are forced to share the ending clue box to make the word.

S01E26 The Story of Mr. C and Mr. K 00/00/0000 All the other Letter People discover what Mr. C knew all along: he and Mr. K have the same sound.
