Exploding Lemons - I remember that much

Whenever I reminisce with friends about childhood television (Great Space Coaster, 3-2-1 Contact, etc) there is one show that nobody remembers. Hell, I barely remember it but perhaps someone here has better memories of this than I do.

It was a puppet show that took place at a hotel. There was an older puppet that ran the hotel and the show mainly revolved around his son. There was also a bad guy (at least I think he was bad) who threw exploding lemons. Lemon grenades played a fairly large role and everyone seemed to throw them at some point.
I happened to be living in Topeka, Kansas at the time, so it is possible that it was a locally produced children's show. (The same way none of my friends remember Uncle Al since they're not from southwest Ohio.) It would have been airing around 1978, perhaps a little before or after.
Someone's got to remember the exploding lemons!
