Sunshine Factory was a Christian children's show that aired originally in 1984 and was syndicated nationally. The children who starred in the show would leave the real world and visit the Sunshine Factory by traveling through a psychedelic portal located behind a bookcase in P.J.'s fix-it shop; the Factory was inhabited by hand puppets who would teach religious lessons through experiences.
