Make A Wish

1 9 7 1 – 1 9 7 6 (USA)

This quick-moving award-winning ABC series for inquisitive young viewers was built around word-association and hosted by singer Tim Chapin (brother of Harry).

Live-action interviews, animation, historic film clips and film shot around the US as well as abroad, were used to explore the meanings and associations of the key words.

Make a wish, have a ball
Dream a dream, be it all
If you want it, you can get it
But to get it, you’ve got to want it
Anything you want to try
Just let go, fly high . . . and Make a Wish

Tom Chapin
