harriet’s magic hats

first of all, my apologies to those of you who didn’t grow up in Canada in the 80’s. I did, and when I was a little boy there was a kid’s show called Harriet’s Magic Hats, about Aunt Harriet and her magic chest of hats. Aunt Harriet’s nieces would always go to the attic to try on the hats, and every time they did, they would be transported away to a place related to the hat they chose. For example, putting on a chef’s hat might transport one to a professional kitchen, putting on a firefighter’s hat would bring one to a firehall, etc. Personally, I credit this show with giving me an odd obsession with hats; as an homage to the show’s lasting effect on my psyche, one of the character attributes in the notorious what’s your pokéname? (yes, I made it) is a “magic chest of hats”. Now friends, thanks to the magic of YouTube, let us relive the glory of those golden days.
