The Shoe People was a bizarre childrens TV show made in the 1980s. It centered around an old shoe mender's shop (although the shop itself doesnt feature much). The story goes like this: people bring shoes to the shop to be repaired. However, some people "forget" to pick up their mended shoes, or the shoes are too worn out to be repaired. In some kind of sentimental shoe love however, the shoe mender cannot bring himself to throw out the shoes. Instead, he puts the shoes into the back room of the shop.

The door to the back room does not fit very well. At night when he closes the door, the shoe mender has to slam the door shut. Unknowingly, when he does this, he kicks up a load of magic dust which brings the shoes to life. The wall of the back room disappears and the Shoe People go down to Shoe Town.

The lyrics to the theme music:

Every time you're skipping down the street
Think about the shoes upon your feet, today
It's a magic world when your toes uncurl

Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people

Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people

What've you got between you and the ground
When you want to dance of simply run around
There's some friends down there to take you everywhere

Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
Sh-sh-sh-shoe people
