Count Duckula

To a small child vampires are a scary thing. Well they were to me anyway. So, if a children’s cartoon was to be made about this very subject, what could they do to tame the horrific topic. Hmmm, first of all, let’s make it not a bat, but a duck. Alright, yes a duck is […]

Button Moon

Let’s face it, the 80s was a very scary place to be, especially as far as kids TV was concerned. You may not have thought it then as you plonked yourself infront of the TV to watch your favourite programmes, but looking back on it now… Eek! No wonder I have grown up to be […]

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

Once again this cartoon truly shows that the 1980s was the pinnacle of cartoons for kids. Jayce & the Wheeled Warriors has time and again been voted the best cartoon intro ever and I find it hard for anyone to disagree. The cartoon wasnt to bad either. This has to be my joint favourite cartoon […]

M.A.S.K.

I was first introduced to M.A.S.K at the age of about 5 and instantly found a great attraction to it. I cannot say why I liked it, but I still watch it now even at the age of 32, although it helps by having great theme music for the amazing introduction sequence. Now for a […]

On Safari

Safari? Sa Goodie! Never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day working hard at school. (Or […]

Bullseye

For me, Bullseye WAS Sunday evening TV. Sunday in general was “visiting relatives” day for my family, so from about 3pm on Sunday afternoon we used to be at my Grandads. We would run around the garden for an hour or so, explore his huge house for a bit, but come 5:30 I was glued […]

The Adventure Game

Gronda, Gronda! Come say hello to Uncle, the vibrating aspidistra! The Adventure Game was a gameshow set on a distant planet, called Arg, in which celebrities had to solve puzzles in order to get back home. They also had to speak to a teapot, (or an aspidistra, depending on what Uncle had transformed in to […]

Storybook International

I’m the Storyteller, and my stories must be told… I have many stories, tales for both the young and old… I used to watch this every single week. I have no idea how many episodes were made, but I must have watched them all. I remember it being one of the programmes I used to […]

Grange Hill

Grange Hill is a British television drama series originally made by the BBC. The show began in 1978 on BBC1 and was one of the longest running programmes on British television. It was created by Phil Redmond who is also responsible for the Channel 4 dramas Brookside and Hollyoaks; other notable production team members down […]

Knightmare

“Where am I?” “You’re in a room. There is a table in front of you and a sleeping orc on the right.” Don’t worry, you’ve not accidentally clicked to go to the chatroom. This is the audio-descriptive world of Knightmare! Knightmare was a TV show in which children had to remotely navigate a blindfolded, (or […]
