Thanks. A couple of these I had never heard of before, but they all appear to be well-received and well-liked. I want to make sure that all of the items on the list are ones that bring back specific memories for people who did watch them. Were these some of your favorites?

C Park,

I enjoyed watching all of these (along with many currently on your list) with my daughters when they were young.

For your bemusement.
"The Song that Never Ends" (From Lamb Chop's Play-Along (1992–1997) )

Oh, I remember well "The Song that Never Ends"! I thought it pre-dated this, though. That's good trivia.

Thanks. This is my first poll, so I'm still learning a lot about the process. As far as I know, there is no way to add items after a poll goes live, right? It seems like that would skew results.

C Park,

Your poll currently has 15 choices. Polls may have up to 35 choices.

Once a poll has gone live, you can add choices to the end of your list and ask for a re-push so long as the list does not exceed 35 choices.

Please read the first post in this thread for the details:
FAQ: Poll Authors - Re-Push Requests

Make certain you do not change the order of your list or delete choices.

You can post a re-push request at the end of this thread.

You are correct it could skew the results, it is used mostly for new releases that debuted after the poll went live. It is best put the date the new option was added in answer option's notes, so it clear it was added after the fact. Some poll makers add options regularly, others never add them; it depends on how they view balancing the currency and completeness of a poll with integrity of the voting results.

Thank you. I think I normally would not want to skew the results, but I might as well use this poll as a learning opportunity to learn about as much of the process as possible. I have gone ahead and added Zoom as well as several other popular PBS shows and requested a re-push.
