You put your trust in companies not to abuse something like that and to use it for the greater good and it's kind of shocking when someone abuses it.
"Cindy Cook" is a Canada/Canadian children's entertainer. A graduate of York University's theatre program (1979), she was hired as a host on the long-running children's series Polka Dot Door in 1981. Cindy became the longest-serving female host in the program's history.
Polka Dot Door was syndicated world-wide, including South Africa during apartheid.
Cindy's proudest memory during those years was having the show air in South Africa.
She received several fan letters saying that it was the only children's series shown in South Africa with black and white performers onscreen together.
When the series ended in 1993, she continued to tour across Canada and U.S. with Polka Dot Door Live until 2010.
Cindy also toured Canada for five years as host of Bananas in Pajamas/Bananas in Pajamas Live.
In 1990, Cindy formed her own production company Time To Read Productions, creating the series Time To Read for Mid-Canada Communications/MCTV and YTV (TV channel)/YTV.
The series ran for five years and 130 episodes - using all Canadian writers and illustrators.
Cindy also released a CD ... Sing and Spell with Cindy Cook.
It was produced and written by Canadian music legend Willie P. Bennett and Kevin Knelman.More Cindy Cook on Wikipedia.
