Cucumber (Canadian TV series)

Cucumber was a TV show produced by TVOntario in the 1970s, and repeated in the 1980s during TVOntario's daytime kids' programming.[1]

The show's title was an acronym for Children's Underground Club of United Moose and Beaver for Enthusiastic Reporters.[2] It featured a human-sized moose (played in costume by Alex Laurier) and beaver (Nikki Tilroe) living in a treehouse, and acting as amateur journalists as they present various educational segments on topics such as science or history.[2]

By sending in a story or some artwork to the show (the mailing address was in Toronto), one could become a member of the Cucumber Club.[2]

Some notable people appeared on the show:
