Miss Tickle is a high school teacher who has some magical powers, augmented by accessories in her bag. She supervises the Adventurers Club after school hours. Most episodes start with interaction between the club members that defines the theme for the episode. After this theme definition, Rick Springfield (he plays himself) calls on a magic gramophone to ask the Adventurers Club for help with a problem in one of the magical worlds beyond the blackboard. Miss Tickle transforms a statue of a cat into a real one. The cat, Tut-Tut, is the key that allows her to draw a door on the blackboard that opens and allows the club to travel to the magical worlds. The club members, Tut-Tut, and Miss Tickle travel to the world where Rick and his owl Ptolemy are waiting for assistance. At some point during the episode, Rick will sing a song that is relevant to the episode theme in some way, either in subject or word choice. Miss Tickle, the club, the animals, and Rick resolve the problem of the ... Written by MikeVx

Oh, Tut-tut, of the ancient lore, it's time to open the magic door!
3 August 2001 | by richard.fuller1See all my reviews

With these words, the teacher's seemingly ceramic cat statue, Tut-tut, would come to life and the sparkling doorway would appear on the chalkboard. I never knew the performer who later appeared on 'General Hospital' and sang 'Jessie's Girl' was the animated character here, namely Rick Springfield. I could never tell those teenie-bopper singing guys apart.

Can't recall any of the other characters' names, but the students all seemed very cartoon cliches of adolescents.

The only adventure I do recall was when they were all put in jail and they escaped by teacher's spell which made the bars grow very big so they were able to just walk out from between them. Now this wouldn't have worked the way it was depicted in the cartoon, but read that last word: "cartoon." It was all fun.

"Do You believe I believe in magic? Yes I believe that you believe it is true. Do you believe I believe in magic, Mission: Magic is right here for you." or something like that. Not sure about the last line. This was the theme song for the show.

Beleive it or not, I do recall the Friday night preview for this show as well. Some jokers were trying to be quiet so the child could get to sleep and get up Saturday morning to watch the new shows. One by one, the new shows would enter the home in some capacity. Rick Springfield appeared with a stiff dog leash and only a collar on the end, signifying Goober, the dog who when he got scared turned invisible, of "Goober and the Ghost-chasers", another HB offering like Scooby Doo.
