It will be a blast from Christmas past!
On December 25, WPIX (PIX11) will present “Magic Garden Christmas,” more than thirty years after the hit children’s special made its debut on the local TV channel.
“Magic Garden,” starring Irvington resident Carole Demas and Paula Janis, aired on WPIX from 1972-1984. The series was a ratings smash for the channel.
The hour-long “Magic Garden Christmas” special, filled with music and fun, aired on December 13, 1981 after a football game. According to WPIX, the master copy was found in a forgotten tape vault in the WPIX building’s basement recently.
Visit “the garden of make-believe” at 6 p.m. on Christmas Day, on television or online at PIX11.com. Demas and Janis, still “friends forever,” will introduce the special.
