One of the program's trademarks was its ending, when King would hold a hand mirror in front of her face and recite in a mellifluous voice the following incantation: "Romper, bomper, stomper, boo, tell me, tell me, tell me do…." After some brief special effects, which consisted mostly of swirling colors, the camera would show King holding the frame of a hand mirror and looking through it to the camera. She would then recite the names of children whom she pretended to see watching ("I see Mary and Tom and Jeff and all you boys and girls out there.")Our version of Miss Mary was Miss Jean.
Wil Wheaton is still upset that his version, Miss Nancy never saw him.
Back in 2001, I replied to Wil:

I was watching that day too! When she said, "I see Steven", I ran into the kitchen to my mother yelling, "She saw me in my pajamas!" I was very upset.
My mother had no idea what I was talking about until I told her that Miss Jean just saw me.
Another time, I was watching Jack LaLane with a friend and we were doing the exercises. Again, we were just little kids. We were having a great time and laughing. At one point he looked into the camera and said, "Hey, you two, stop laughing."
We were amazed and ran into the kitchen to tell my mom.
We really believed it happened!
