If my high school german is accurate, he is a burned piece of bread. Possibly a sandwich.

Man, those shows ruled when we were young, but when we see the reruns now, they suck.

I don't remember Ullysses 31, but I used to love Battle of the Planets.  I had quite a few episodes recorded on audio cassette (in the dark ages before VCRs).

I was a big fan of Sesame Street as a little one.  Used to love 3-2-1 Contact, too, when it came out.  Of course, I watched the obligatory Road Runner, Bugs Bunny, Scooby Doo, and Superfriends.

Anybody remember a series called "Space Academy"?  I think it only lasted 1 season, but I loved it.

When Nickelodeon first started they ran episodes of the Canadian TV show "You Can't Do That On Television" and BBC's "The Tomorrow People", both which I loved.  About that time, the local PBS station ran Doctor Who late on friday nights and I'd stay up after midnight watching it.

I've never seen 3-2-1 Contact, but I agree. Their David Letterman parody was awesome. And even today, I occassionally give my friends the "Mathnet" high-five.

Shows I remember from the Golden Days

  David the Gnome (Nick Jr.)
  Fred (the guy in the woods with the guitar) (Nick Jr.)
  The Adventures of Tin Tin (Nick Jr.)
  Eureka's Castle (Nick Jr.)
  The Reading Rainbow (PBS)
  Story Time (Nick Jr.)
  You Can't Do That On Television (Nickelodeon)
  Roundhouse (Nickelodeon - Snick)
  Are You Afraid of the Dark? (Nickelodeon - Snick)
  Noozles (Nick Jr.)
  Wild & Crazy Kids (Nickelodeon)

I'll probably remember more later...  I remember one with different colored talking bear-cubs, or maybe koalas... and an episode about one of the bears (or koalas) being sick... and one of their elders showed them how colors could effect physical feelings.  He showed them a red balloon and the bear (or koala) became more sick, he showed them a light blue colored balloon and he felt at ease.

Other shows that I remembered but felt weren't old enough yet were Alex Mack, The Tomorrow People, Space Cases... and Clarissa Explains It All, but that one IS rather old, so add it to the list for me.

And I remember Puddle lane, Danger Mouse, Bangers and Mash, Bananaman, that show with that woman named tea bag, Strawberry shortcake and other shows I watched as a child like Dr.who and Monkey magic. Oh yeah, and captain planet and widget. And Dino, the last dinosaur. I've always been an addict, I guess.

Edit : oh god, 'GUTS'. I remember that. My grandmother got satellite and therefore got nickelodeon. I was a clarissa explains it all girl, too.

Knightmare was greaaaaaaaaat, in fact, they're repeating that on Sky at the moment.

However, Mike and Angelo was cringe-ingly awful. Shame on you, PCC!

Teehee, I love those crappy old Nickelodeon gameshows! Mike O'Malley was the man. Sure, Mo the referee would always scoff at his dorkiness, but you could tell they were doing it behind the scenes.

Double Dare is also a classic. A few months ago I was channel surfing and I saw "Double Dare 2000". Maaan, what the hell is that? It's crap, that's what it is. It didn't even have Mark Summers. It just had some other weirdo, who probably didn't even have OCD.

Also, does anyone remember Nick Arcade? That show was pretty awful. And the host was such a fruit. I'd watch it all the time, in awe of his fruitiness.

And the winners would be put "inside" of a videogame! I bet the contestants would hear that, and they'd get all excited before realizing it's just some crappy blue-screen crap, where they have to stare at a monitor and clumsily wave their arms around so they can avoid some cheesy animations coming their way.

And the prizes were horrible, too. Being a videogame-related show, you'd think the kids would win videogames. But nooo, they just win encyclopedia sets and stuff. Good job, Nickelodeon!

The only good part, was when the kids actually got to play real videogames. It was fun to laugh at all the girls who couldn't play. Sigh...good times.

My all time favourite is Bagpuss (Bagpuss dear Bagpuss old fat furry cat puss ...) it remains a classic because they only ever made 13 (like Mr Benn). 
Along with Knightmare, Sky are also showing the totally bizarre The Adventure Game - I used to love this as a kid, can't think why.

Yes, I remember Nick Arcade like it was yester-80s...  I was always in awe of how they put humans inside the video game... and then I grew up and found out, 4 hours later sleeping pills were being pumped from my jejunum... *stares blankly off into space... space filled with flying carpets and goblins throwing fireballs whilst you try to grab gold coins...*

Damn goblins...

Bagpuss was great, I didn't realise that there were so few episodes, another favourite of mine was The Clangers.

They're still shown on Channel 5 (UK) - be it in a slightly different form to the original version (it's now in extremely dodgy CGI that makes shows like Roly Polly Ollie look good).

What? No way! My dad was a writer for that show - I've still got the scripts at home, and I got to visit the set and actually meet mike (and angelo. of course).

I think the big problem with M&A was that they used canned laughter, so if you (as a young kid) missed a joke, you'd be like "what? what's so funny?".

If you're interested, my dad also wrote that three part series on the BBC last December about a world in which chocolate was banned (if you're interested. You probably weren't).

Yeah! That was cool! Like everything on the channel "Tele 5".
Tele 5, started in 1984, the best cartoon channel ever was killed by corrupt Bavarian TV-guys (namely: Kiiiiirch!) and replaced by a crappy Sport-Channel just showing odd sport-shows from Japan and ... naughty things late at night  frown ...
But now Tele 5 is back to rule!
And with Tele 5 they all come back: Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, Galaxy Rangers, Odysseus 31, the Raccoons ( big grin), the Smurfs ( big grin), and the fantastic, cool, sexy ... "Queen Millenia"   love  smile

I missed about 4 years of US TV as a kid while living in Germany.  Had to survive on old reruns on the Armed Forces Network (The US Forces English TV Station).  Our US-spec TV couldn't pick up German stations.  When we came back to the States, the big thing was something called "MTV", along with "Knight Rider" and "Magnum PI".
