Does anyone remember an old show (I think on PBS) with a witch that has a woman prisoner and makes her make books in a cauldron?

I never saw it myself but I think what you are searching for is titled Once Upon a Time.

I know this show! My mom starred in it as Marion the Librarian! I have a video of it on youtube if you'd like to see, send me a private message on youtube if you have any questions! I've told my mom about all the interest in this show even now years later and she cannot believe it!

I loved Once Upon a Time and have talked about it often to friends/ family who don't seem to remember it - what a great blast from the past to see Marion and the witch again (and I do remember Starlore as well!).

I have been looking for that show, the one with the kid and the exercise bike. I remember just about as much as you do. I thought somewhere that the kid got together with an older man and wore something like a jedi cloak, but then again it could have been the guy in black on the motorcycle. I hope we can find this show.

I watched this show also. Almost every day when I was a kid. I miss that type of show now that I have a little girl.

Wakko22, I think the show you're thinking of may have been Inside Story featuring Mr. Slim Goodbody. He had on the full body suit with bones and internal organs that you described, and the episodes would center around different body parts. He had giant stuffed organ props. The one I most distinctly remember was about the stomach and digestion, and there was a vignette about a scientist who discovered acids in the stomach by tying a string to a piece of meat and putting it in a patient's cut open stomach for a day, then when he pulled it out the meat was digested. It really creeped me out at the time especially because it looked like he was going through the belly button to get to the stomach.

The show with the guy in the bones and organ body suit is Mr. Goodbody.

Okay so you all seem to know your NETV FROM THE 80's. See if you remember this one. I can't remember the name but it was about Nebraska agriculture (I think). There was a time traveler named Anree (spelled wrong I'm sure)that looked kind of like a French Ben Franklin. Anyway he ended up meeting a farmer named Hank in Nebraska who took him around the state introducing him to different Nebraska things. I only remember it had alot to do with farming.
