Hello Mrs. Cherrywinkle was a children's educational television program that aired in 1996. It centered on the adventures of the title character, Mrs. Cherrywinkle (portrayed by Kathy "Babe" Robinson, of Philadelphia, PA), a stout woman full of energy who interacted with a variety of puppets in her home and garden. The puppets used in the show were created by Noreen Young & Matt Ficner.
Songs for the series were written by Randy Vancourt and Tim Burns.
American Public Television picked up the show in 1999 for American distribution; Coscient Group planned to produce more episodes of the show for PBS Kids if it was successful. The show's American run was unsuccessful and the new episodes were instead produced for the French network Télé-Québec.
