Favorite Kids Tv when you were growing up?
« on: October 18, 2017, 10:04:04 AM »
Could be Cartoons, might be Kids TV Drama...whatever. Myself....i recall most fondly the Cartoons. Some of my absolute faves were

Hong Kong Phooey
Top Cat (Boss Cat in the USA)
Inch High Private Eye
Captain Caveman
Wait till your Father Gets Home (like an early kids version of Family Guy, but less full on)
Battle Of The Planets
Scooby Doo
Speed Buggy
Ghoober and The Ghost Chasers
The New Schmoo

And doubtlessley more will spring to mind over time. I adore being nostalgic, so would love to hear others input, especially Kids of the 70s and 80s

Lassie, My Friend Flicka, (don't laugh...I'm a girl!), but also Top Cat, Bugs & Daffy, etc.
NOT The Three Stooges!

My folks used to let me watch old reruns of David & Goliath.  I was also able to watch Scooby Doo and Sesame Street.  Never really got into Muppets.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

I am Zippy!

zippy!

the greatest voiced puppet of all time.

as for the shows, I remember a mad series called rent-a-ghost. I reckon it's makers were all off their heads on drugs at the time.  ;D

I remember really enjoying it though, so I dunno what that says about me!

Another one was 'words and pictures'. I think 'dark tower' and 'the boy from outer space' were shown on it. great mini series.

'hello little old lady!'

it's ringing a few bells, I think I may have just been starting off on my 'cartoon consciousness' around then.

others I remember were; the flumps, the wombles, dangermouse, superted, banana man, tickle on the tum, rhubarb and custard, henry's cat, ivor the engine and wilo the wisp.
