PIXANNE
 
Philadelphia Kid Show Host Pixanne

Jane Norman – better known as Philadelphia kid show host Pixanne – was, and is, so much more than just another pretty face. She was one of the brightest, most talented and most popular kid show hosts anywhere, ever.

Jane was born in Philadelphia’s East Oak Lane section and by the age of 3 was a Mozart-like musical prodigy who played classical piano and composed. At the age of 8, she wrote a piece that was performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra. By her mid-teens, she was acting in and directing professional theater.

After graduating from Olney High School and Temple University, Jane became a kindergarten teacher whose innovative musical/theatrical teaching style delighted children and parents alike, and eventually caught the eye of a TV producer. “The Pixanne Show” began in Philadelphia and was later nationally syndicated. At its peak, the show pulled in higher ratings than Captain Kangaroo, the early evening news, and nearly every other show on network television. Children loved the way Pixanne flew through the air at the beginning and end of each show. They loved her songs and her stories. Parents loved the show’s wholesomeness, and teachers happily recognized its educational value.

When “Pixanne” ended its 17-year run, Jane refused to sit around and collect pixie dust. She traveled down not one but many exciting new career paths – author, home repairs guru, producer, motivational speaker, talk show host, and of course musician. Now a successful recording artist and cabaret performer, Philadelphia’s favorite former pixie is showing the world she has plenty of magic in her yet.

OZZARD OF WHIZ: “My dad said he and all his buddies would pack into a bar at 9 AM to watch ‘The Pixanne Show’ – AND IT WAS A KIDS’ TV SHOW! I ‘kid’ you not! I assume they weren’t just interested in seeing what Oggie the Owl and Fliffy the Butterfly were up to in the Magic Forest.”

SON OF SWOOP
SON OF SWOOP: “C’mon, Lib. Pixanne was SO hot in that Pixie outfit. She was way better looking than that sissy boy Peter Pan.”
   
OZZARD OF WHIZ OZZARD OF WHIZ: “Peter Pan wouldn’t last 5 minutes at the corner of 9th and Passyunk.”
   
SON OF SWOOP SON OF SWOOP: “I’d clock him with my Captain Right-Hook— ‘Yo Pete, you dropped your jar of peanut butter… BAM!’ Sissy Boy’s flyin’ back to Neverland!”
   
LIBERTY BELLE LIBERTY BELLE: “I’m sure Pixanne would be impressed. Not.”
