Hi-5 Original Cast Reunion!
This petition had 209 supporters
In 1998, Helena Harris and Posie Graeme-Evans decided to create a revolutionary new preschool series. The show would centre around five young presenters who would entertain kids and adults alike with their fun and educational skits, hilarious stories and energetic song and dance routines. They decided to call the series Hi-5.
In 1999 the show went to air, with the cast consisting of:
- Charli Robinson, who did the Body Move segment.
- Nathan Foley, who did the Shapes in Space segment.
- Kellie Crawford, who did the Word Play segment (with her puppet friend Chatterbox.)
- Tim Harding, who did the Making Music segment.
- And Kathleen de Leon Jones, who did the Puzzles and Patterns segment (with a purple alien named Jup Jup.)
Instantly the show became a hit and went on to spawn various albums, DVDs, international spin-offs (including UK and US versions) and merchandise galore. The group also toured a lot, and live shows sold out fast.
However, in 2007 Kathleen decided to leave the group to have her baby Mikayla. Sun Park replaced her, with Tim following her and being replaced with Stevie Nicholson. Eventually by 2009 the original cast was entirely phased out and replaced by a new, younger cast.
As Hi-5's 20th Anniversary is coming in 2019, it would be a good idea to have an over 16's reunion concert from the original group! As well as performing in their native Australia, they could also tour in Singapore, New Zealand and the UK.
If you agree with my idea, please sign the petition and maybe Nathan, Charli, Tim, Kellie and Kathleen could return!
