OMG Chocky, I had totally forgotten that one! That was classic, way too scary for kids TV, even my mum used to sit and watch that. It was a green ethereal pyramid thingy that talked.

[i]Originally posted by Tilli[/]I remember these two shows. Picturebox had that weird revolving box at the beginning and wasn't it like an educational show? I don't remember the talking cushion , thank goodness.

Didn't Let's Pretend have that weird puppet snake thing dancing to the opening credits?
Yeah your right about Picturebox, I'm wondering if I'm getting Humphrey the Cushion from another program 'House on the Hill' or something like that I think it was called.

Yep 'Let's Pretend' did have a big snake thing on the credits. They used to pick a bunch of things out of boxes at the top of the show, and then cobble together a half baked story out of it, I always liked it anyway

I was never into 'Byker Grove' I think I'd just started college when that got going. But did used to love Grange Hill, when Gonch, Ziggy, Zammo, and that guy that was in Londons Burning was in it, and Roland (Row-land as that girl always used to call him ) of course.

Damn, now you're really talking! Fingerbobs, Dangermouse, and Rentaghost

Wasn't Audrey Roberts from Coronation Street in Rentaghost or have I lost the plot? Dangermouse was seriously funny, I'd love to see some of them again as I think a lot of the humour in those were adult orientated.

Hmmmm a few more have just sprung to mind...

Button Moon (featuring Licklebockle - ie Littlebottle), and everything was made from household items, mainly from the kitchen I think.
Playaway (with the legendary Brian Cant, he's still going strong!)
Ivor The Engine (Chercheecoo, Chercheecoo!)
Mr Men (Mr Greedy & Mr Topsy Turvy rocked!)
Whydontyou? (I could never get enough of this)
The Red Hang Gang
The Famous Five
Morph



*Wipes back tears of nostalgia*

I feel sorry for the youth of today, I really do!

Hehe welcome on board Susan!

Captain Pugwash
Can't believe I left this one out! My mum will have a photo of me buried away somewhere at my 4th birthday party wearing my pride and joy... a Captain Pugwash t-shirt.

The whole Seaman Stains, and Master Bates thing that everyone talks about from that show is an urban myth though isn't it? They never really existed did they?

The Herbs is ringing distant bells, I've gotta say, what was that one about?

Dig the book out, dig the book out, more nostalgia!!

I think the Pugwash stuff is a myth i understand, yes!!!! i've heard lots of people debate that whole subject! It's always a big talking point eh!!! gets everybody sniggering anyway! lol.

I'll try&find the book in the next day or 2 - no way i feel like getting it out now so to speak!

The herbs were like animated animals named after herbs like there's a lion called Parsley! Also Dill the dog! It was ace!

Oh Willow the wisp too - with Kenneth Williams voicing!

Ohhh Matron, stop messing about! Willow the Wisp was great, even though I never understood what was happening, a bit like Chorlton and The Wheelie World, what the heck was all that about, the creators must have been doing some serious drugs !

The Herbs is definitely ringing bells, was it a BBC thing circa Rhubarb & Custard - mid 70's? Lol, Rhubarb & Custard, theres another classic! And what a theme tune.

That Aussie kids show Round The Twist had the best theme music ever though.

Hmmmm.... Runaround, Gggggggg Go!!! Remember that?!! With the legendary Mike Reid. Remember the circular table chock full of prizes. You can imagine Mike Reid clipping misbehaving kids round the earhole off camera.

Magpie!!! ITV's Blue Peter, with Tony Barnstaple, Jenny Hanley , and Tommy Boyd who went on to present Childrens ITV. Tony Barnstaples name used to send me into fits of hysterics for some strange reason. I was a disturbed child lol.

She always used to remind me of a deranged Jimmy Hill / Bruce Forsyth with that over pronounced chin

was that the one with the evil guy who wanted to infiltrate them or something, and these kids were so clean cut and upstanding it was rather revolting? there was a fat kid and he was bribed with a big tin of lollies once. they wore blue tee-shirts.

I used to like The Herbs. It was so cute! (In the UK, kids' TV programmes seem to be repeated more often than Cash in the Attic!).

And to be for a second. Blue Peter was good. Diane Louise Jordan is an absolute legend
Plus I remember the whole Richard Bacon cocaine scandal well. They had a broadcast from the BBC's head of children's programming right in the middle of CBBC and everything.

Well that explains a lot. I used to love the Herbs too, Parsley the Lion was my favourite and I vaguely remember the old glory days of Blue Peter with John Noakes, (come here Shep), Peter Purves and Valerie Singleton. Also loved the Magic Roundabout, the Clangers, White Horses, Mr Benn but the best of them all was Tiswas Saturday mornings have never been the same since.
