The Choo Choo Bob Show, produced right here in Minnesota, has won 3 Emmys!
At the Upper Midwest Emmys this past month, the Choo Choo Bob Show won for Best Children’s Program (12 & Under), Program Writer (Non-News), and Lighting. It was also nominated for Musical Composition/Arrangement, Program Editor (Non-News), and On-Camera Talent-Performer/Narrator.
If you haven’t checked out the show, it airs on channel 45 in the Twin Cities on Saturdays at 2:30pm. My kids love it, especially Thor, my 3-year-old. Here’s their Halloween Spook-tacular, a full episode you can watch right here:
“The Choo Choo Bob Show” beat out other regional children’s programs like “Can-Do Girls” from KARE-TV, Minneapolis; “Draven’s Wish,” from LaCrosse, Wisc.; and “TV9 Storm Team WX Academy” from Cedar Rapids, Ia.
The Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a membership organization dedicated to excellence in television.
“Six nominations is a tremendous honor for all of us ‘The Choo Choo Bob Show,’” says Bob Medcraft, the show’s creator and producer. “We have an incredibly talented cast and crew behind our high-energy, family-friendly programming — so to be recognized for outstanding work by the Emmy’s? We’re over the moon!”
