Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings was produced in the early 1970s by FilmFair London Productions. It concerned the adventures of a small boy who had a magic blackboard in his bedroom. It was magical for one reason only - whatever Simon drew on his blackboard would appear in Chalk Drawing Land. Only Simon knew of this special place and only he could create the drawings for it. Many children have seen Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings on a program called Captain Kangeroo. I do not believe Captain Kangaroo and the Electric Company was actually seen on UK television as Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings had his own five or so minute slot on childrens television around tea time.

Chalk Drawing Land was found just over the fence which Simon normally entered by climbing a ladder. Occasionally the characters of Chalk Drawing Land would wait to meet Simon on the fence itself. Once on top of the fence, Simon was transported to the fantasy world of which everything was a chalk drawing except Simon.

This children's adventure normally lasting about five minutes.

"Well you know my name is Simon,

and the things I draw come true,

Oh pictures take me, take me over,

Climb the ladder with you."
