Roobarb And Custard

We all remember this one, don’t we, if only for the fact of the drawings that bounce all over the place, not to mention the theme music that everyone at one stage or another, whether they be drunk or sober has yelled along to at the top of their voices trying to emulate the instruments. […]

Roland Rat : The Series

Up from the depths, thirty stories high, breathing fire, his head in the sky, ROLA… oh, hang on, that was Godzilla… Roland Rat was the first 80s non-human character who originated from the UK, and rose up to become an International Megastar. Now, I know what you’re thinking…. What about Basil Brush – He wasn’t […]


Up above the streets and houses, rainbow climbing high, Everyone can see it smiling, all over the sky. Paint the whole world with a rainbow. You know how your mind works when you’re a child, and how you pick up on the slightest thing? Well, I remember that I got really annoyed whenever I heard […]

Orm And Cheep

If you want to throw a sicky from work, but feel guilty about not actually being sick, Orm and Cheep is the answer. This program will make you physically want to vomit. I can’t really put into words how “nice” this show is. Eeek! I’m sure this program is the reason there is so much […]

Mysterious Cities Of Gold

It is the 16th century. From all over Europe great ships sale west to conquer the new world, the Americas. These men eager to seek their fortune, to find new adventures in new lands. They long to cross uncharted seas and discover unknown countries. To find secret gold on a mountain trail high in the […]

Jossys Giants

Glipton Grasshoppers are a struggling boys’ football team who are going nowhere fast – until one day a Geordie ex-football pro called Jossy Blair comes into their lives and turns them into…Jossy’s Giants! So begins Sid ”TV’s Mr Darts” Waddell’s classic kids footballing comedy, which ran for two series on BBC1 between 1986 and 87. […]

Jimbo And The Jetset

Surrealism at it’s best! It’s a good job that children don’t think too much about what they see on TV, otherwise this simple kids show would really screw their brains. Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a new aircraft is being built. The new aircraft doesn’t really turn out how […]

Jamie And The Magic Torch

Here’s one even my mum remembers. And who could forget it? For years I search for Jamie and the Magic Torch on video, and then along came the Gods know as Pearson TV, who released it on video. Bless their cotton socks! To be honest, I couldn’t remember much about this program other than Jamie […]

James The Cat

This is going to put a few backs up, but here goes. I have always thought that cats are the most selfish, self-centred, egotistical animals on the face of this Earth. They only want to know you if they want something, the rest of the time they don’t want anything to do with you because […]
