Love Radishes? Enjoy the Kids’ Point of View with Ricky Schroeder

radish-ricky

This 1983 video starring Ricky Schroeder instructs parents how to plant a garden with their kids. It is an odd video, especially when it gets strangely specific, like when Ricky tells you that you should plant radishes. That’s just what a parent wants, their kids bringing them a radish freshly plucked from the earth that they have to pretend to enjoy. Can’t kids learn to plant a sweeter treat? How about a carrot? Or a tomato? Why so pro-radish Ricky?
