The Wonderful Stories of Professor Kitzel was an educational animated series
that ran from 1972 to 1976 in Canada and lived on in reruns for many years
after. Produced by Shamus Culhane for Krantz Films, the program combined film
clips, animation, and narrative to teach the viewers about historic and
events. It was "hosted" by the eccentric scientist Professor Kitzel (whose
voice was provided by Paul Soles) with occasional appearances by his
grandfather or his parrot.
