Hello Mrs. Cherrywinkle was a children's educational television program that aired in 1996. It centered on the adventures of the title character, Mrs. Cherrywinkle (portrayed by Kathy "Babe" Robinson, of Philadelphia, PA), a stout woman full of energy who interacted with a variety of puppets in her home and garden. The puppets used in the show were created by Noreen Young & Matt Ficner.

Songs for the series were written by Randy Vancourt and Tim Burns.

American Public Television picked up the show in 1999 for American distribution; Coscient Group planned to produce more episodes of the show for PBS Kids if it was successful.[1] The show's American run was unsuccessful and the new episodes were instead produced for the French network Télé-Québec.
