Wow, this page has brought back several unexpected memories. I remember almost all of these! ARG! I can't remember seeing any episodes of The Get Along Gang or the Wuzzels, thought I did have a couple of books about them. I think my sister had a couple of things about that sort of stuff too  smile

Stuff not yet mentioned that I watched was most of the Gerry Anderson shows. I loved Thunderbirds the most. Stingray was great though slightly cheesy, and Captain Scarlet was good but way too dark for me - at the time.
Never saw Fireball XL5 and didn't really like Joe90 that much.
I was watching some of Captian Scarlet reruns a couple of months ago and I thought: "Now, they could really redo this series only with perhaps computer animation and much more dark and interesting plots" and apparently that's now exactly what Gerry is doing.  smile

The Gerry Anderson stuff was cool, except Terrahawks.  Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds were the best, Stingray was rubbish.  Be interesting to see who the Thunderbirds movie turns out.

Star Fleet knocks the socks of any of them.

Fireball XL5 had one of the best theme tunes ever.  But no-one will show it these days because it's B&W.

Anyway, I used to have a sticker of that purple elephant Wuzzle on my door, that I couldn't get off. I always wondered what the hell he was from, and now I know. Thanks PEEL.

I never liked Gummi Bears. It was a far cry from the candy.

Does anyone remember the Mad Balls cartoon? What about Rude Dog? He wasn't rude enough, if you ask me.

Wizbit...I remember that well, have a book of it somewhere. I remember Care Bears, I had a green one with a shamrock on it and a pink one with a rainbow on it. I have a video tape of Gummi Bears and Slyvanian Familes somewhere as well  smile I also remember a CITV show called Wizadora...

I remember Bananaman well, I loved that show.
"This is 29, Acacia Road. And this is Eric, the schoolboy who leads an exciting double life. For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs. Eric is Bananaman!"

The Family Ness was another show I remember, it had an awesome theme tune!

A little research on my part led me to an old (2001) Top Ten Of Everything book which says that the equal eighth highest ever UK television audience (tied with a Frazier/Ali boxing match from 8 March 1971) is the 22 November 1980 episode of Dallas which revealed who shot J.R. with a viewing figure of 27 million.

So I don't know what this site is on about:

The 1984 run of [The A-Team] remains the only U.S. import ever shown on British television to break the 15-million audience barrier.

Maybe it means to consistantly break the barrier?

I also remember some weird shows like "widget" and "super ted" and "Jem"

I loved Thunderbirds too. The movie looks cool but without the puppets and strings it may lack the heart of the original series.

I loved the GummiBears as a kid. Me and my sister would watch it every Saturday moring. Back when there was a decent Disneyclub show on ITV. In recent years they have become shallow, soulless, and lack that sense of Disney magic.

The animated series of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was one of my favourite cartoons. I also remember the TV animated version of Back To The Future.



 Sharky And George was always shown at around 7am. And Hammerman! Those were the days...

C Bear and Jamal was also another favourite. There also used to be a show called The Hurricanes all about a football team. I can hear the theme tune now. Oh and 'Zero To Hero' in which Michael Owen came to life out of a boy's bedroom poster!

Bugger that reminds me of several more cartoons I used to love - horray for Juli!

I loved Victor & Hugo! I even remember that Danger Mouse themed episode. I really liked David Jasons seeming impersonation of Peter Seller's "Bluebottle" character from The Goon Show (You have to be really old or really knowledgeable to know what I'm talking about though) when he played Hugo.  big grin
Of course it goes without saying I loved Dangermouse and Count Dukula as well  wink

I remember all these crappy cartoons but no-one ever says I'm their hero!

And the best cartoon was Batfink.
