Here's another one for you:
In the late 70's/early 80's I watched a TV show about a bear named Jeremy. He had this suitcase that could turn into all sorts of different things -- a car, a bike, a windsurfer, etc.
I distinctly remember that he fell through a hole in the ice and spent several TV weeks swimming around under water trying to get out so he could go home.
I can't remember what the show was called, have never been able to find information about it and no one else I talk to ever seems to remember it. I know it was real, though!
