Old Childrens Programmes!!

Recommended Posts

Does anybody remember these: Orm & Cheep, Ludwig, The Giddys, The Ratties, Rub-a-dub dub, Go-bots, Jossy's Giants, Centurions, Simon and the Witch, M.A.S.K, Ovid and my personal favourite (and NOBODY ive asked remembers) The Groovy Ghoulies??

Cartoons are shite now (apart from spongebob) and i think they should all by re-commisioned!!!

Any other faves???

Used to like Jossy's Giants.

Saw Mask again recently and came to the conclusion that it's a load of crap.

How about Muppet Babies?

Pigeon Street was amazing especially the theme tune! What was the guy with the telescopes dog called??

I thought MASK was good, i had one of the cars dune buggys that changed into a plane type thing!! It wasnt real, it was just a toy (dammit).

*raises confused old head from copy of 'Peoples Friend'

I used to like 'Rag, Tag & Bobtail', 'Tales from the Riverbank','Ivor the Engine & the Woodentops'

Moreup-to-date I also enjoyed Trumpton, Pogle's Wood, Bagpuss & the Clangers.

I have vague memories of Muffin the Mule and Mr Turnip :rockon:

teddy ruxbin fan , and around the world with filias fogg. used to like that one.

racoons, gummi bears,

The best thing about old cartoons was the theme tunes, nowadays they are just shite, but back in teh day they really put some thought into the tunes.

bas: dum dum dum dudu dum dum dum ...

gobots? the gobots were utter pish. poor man's transformers

of course the best will always be the ubiquitous thundercats.

I don't remember many of the programmes from this thread, but Jayce and co. is one of my early memories and the cartoon that holds the warmest spot in my heart :)

Ruxbin was ace, but the toy was for babies!! Was there things that looked like Boglins in it?? Loved the theme tunes for gummi bears, 80 days around the world(we'll find a pot of gold) and mysterious cities of gold and ullyses!! Racoons was ok but a bit sappy, although Cyril Sneer was a coll muthafucka!!!

Gobots was shit, i agree, but it was ace back then!! Cant remember Paw Paw bears, what were they??

I'm famous for my nostalgia fests about old kids tv programming, video's and dvds include - Transformers season 1, and the movie, GI Joe the movie, the clangers, the complete bagpuss, the complete Mr Benn (tho they've just rekleased this on DVD with a NEW episode :o), the complete flumps, button moon, Ed the duck the video, and many more.

My flat is famous as a shrine to the God of Bagpuss, with several cuddly toys (4 i think), mugs, t-shirts,posters, wallets, and anything else I can think of...

If you want obscure shows:

The Space Sentinels, Mooncat, tickle on the tum (with the legendary Ralph McTell), and Godzilla (not so obscure but it did have the great Godzooky...).

Cheers

Stuart

Hmm, i think my favourite was probably "simon and the witch". But the two mad serials ("dark season" and "century falls") were also ace though quite recent in the scheme of things. Maybe also "alfonzo bonzo" and "archer's goon"? Anyone else remember these then?

After some research i should also mention "moondial", "the way to satin shore", "the moomins" and "bertha". Whatever happened to creepy serials on the bbc after newsround anyway? I pity the poor kids nowadays with all the shite they have to sit through.
