Allegra's Window was a children's TV series that aired from 1994 to 1996. Compared to Sesame Street stylistically, the series follows a toddler puppet named Allegra as she common problems in the life of a young person. She, her friends Lindi and Riff, and her brother Rondo all learn about life with the help of those in their neighborhood. At the end of an episode, Allegra would sit at her window and think back on everything she has learned. The show aired 53 episodes over the course of three seasons. Allegra's Window had episodes that dealt with all sorts of dilemmas that children can experience. Episodes talked about being nervous before the first day of school, helping others when they're in need, practicing to improve one's skills, and coping appropriately when things don't go their way. One of the reasons the show was able to be a success with its use of music and songs to engage children. Allegra's Window had a theme that was heavily influenced by music. The characters were named after styles of dance, guitar riffs, and even musical tempos. There were also many songs in the show, which added to the musical theme. Occasionally, a talking bass and tuba showed up in the show. The tuba was the son of the bass and always told by his mother to play classical music, which he did not want to do. The show also continued the musical theme with different sing-alongs. The choice to use Allegra as the name of the main character came after the executive producer, Jan Fleming-Chandler, went to a party of some friends and noticed their daughter, Allegra. Later on the producer told her parents that she would like to use their daughter's name for a project that was being worked on for Nick Jr., which eventually became the show.
