Kids Are People Too was a popular American children's show that aired on ABC every Sunday morning from 1978 to 1982. The show was successful and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Entertainment Series in 1978. It featured cartoons, music, and even interviews with celebrities.
The show was hosted by Bob McAllister, a television personality from the 1950s to 1980s. Before Kids Are People Too, McAllister hosted another children's series, Wonderama, until it was taken off the air in 1977. McAllister sang a song at the end of every episode of Wonderama titled "Kids Are People Too." When ABC offered McAllister the hosting position for a new children's series, they decided to name it after the famous closing theme song in order to capitalize on Wonderama's success.
