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 […]

Knight Rider

Now here we have a classic. Come on, own up now. Who when they were younger wanted their dad to put a flashing KITT-style light on the front of the family car? Yes, I’m looking at YOU. Be a man (I’m gonna have to exclude the girlies here, because I don’t think they were as […]

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 […]

The Hair Bear Bunch

This obviously confirms your thoughts that I am completely sad. But my life would be completely empty without Hair Bear with a hair style that resembles my own, Bubi Bear with his invisible motor cycle (who said that cartoon characters are not on drugs), Square Bear with an obsession with food that also resembles my […]

Hong Kong Phooey

Sit back, relax and clear your mind of everything. I want to paint a mental picture for you. First, imagine your favourite superhero (anyone apart from Hong Kong Phooey obviously). Now imagine that superhero if he had the ability to do Kung Fu. Now imagine that superhero if he didn’t have the ability to do […]
