Question: Rick Springfield was the voice of a cartoon character I watched as kid. I cannot remember what the show was called. It was about a witch who taught a class and would have to take the kids with her. They would go through the chalkboard to get wherever. I seem to remember Rick's character was always involved. I think he used to sing as well. Could you please help me out? Curtiss N., Seattle, Wash.
Televisionary: That I can. Springfield voiced an animated version of himself on an ABC Saturday-morning cartoon called Mission: Magic, which ran from 1973-75, I believe. On the show, teacher Miss Tickle and her magic cat took the student members of her Adventurers Club through a magic door she drew on the board. Rick and his owl guided them on their adventures, and Springfield also penned and performed original tunes for the show.
