So, most of you (who watched Treehouse TV as a kid) probably remember "Crazy Quilt". It's the show with the lady and the raccoon making crafts while telling stories. It was a cool little show that originally aired from 1997 to 1999, with reruns until 2011. There's like 6 or 7 episodes on the YouTube channel Kaylor Blakley.
What most people don't remember though is that when the show launched in 1997, it instead had a different host and a full body costumed tiger. It was really weird and didn't feel like Crazy Quilt. The ones with Maggie & Jackson had a much darker atmosphere than this one it seems. Travis Doucette uploaded YouTube video of an original Treehouse promo from 1997 of this original version (it was uploaded around 2013). Here it is.
I have no specific memory of it but I'm sure I would have watched it since I would have been 6 in 1997. One thing I do remember is an earlier version of Freaky Stories where the cockroach was white instead of blue. That isn't relevant to this thread but that show's mostly lost too and I don't think there's any of the original version surviving so I sometimes wonder if my brain just made it up. I think he was hosting in a graveyard instead of a diner.
Anyway, I did watch Crazy Quilt as a kid and I'm sure I would have seen the original version at the time, but I don't remember it.
