I've been thinking lately about how crap kids tv is at the moment and how great it was when I was a kid.
I remember those good old days and I feel sorry for kids nowadays that they don't get to see these classic programmes.
I made a list of those I used to watch and think fondly of (these are mostly Australian):
Ship to Shore- Only the first series...Hermes rules
Round the Twist- Only the first couple of series..."Without my pants"
Lift Off- Mr Fish was always funny "No *blank* in the foyer"
Bananaman- "When Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs"...it got me to eats bananas
Bananas in Pyjamas- To continue the banana related shows..."Trrust me, I'm a rat"
Johnson and Friends- Toys coming to life has been done since but no one has done the talking waterbottle (Alfred) again
Tintin - I have watched it since, it's timeless
Superted- I still want to know his secret word
The Trap Door
Blinky Bill - Longest intro song ever
Victor and Hugo: Bunglers in Crime
Widget the World Watcher
The Ferals/ Feral TV - "Are you Joe King?"
The Wayne Manifesto- I remember the rubber hammers and the one where Squocka eats the chicken and pretends they're witchetty grubs
Amazing! - The maze run was the best
Vidiot - My older brother remembers this better than I do...Oh Eden Gaha, where are you now?
Art Attack - It was fun watching the big art attacks and guessing what they'd be
Couch Potato- Bring back Grant Piro, he was so funny
These shows were great when I was growing up and I think they should bring them back.
Surely I'm not the only one who thinks this...am I?
