Transformers was very good, probably my favorite at the time. Gummi Bears had an awesome theme song, though. And those cool underground flume cars they used to ride! Duck Tales had a good song as well: "You might solve a mystery, or re-write history. DUCK TALES! A-woo-oo"
Current favorite is Weekenders, though like Futurama, I've seen every episode.

Right now it is! And my favourite show as a kid has to be Knightmare, that incredible virtual reality adventure game. Any denizens of the UK remember this timeless classic?!

Sounds like 150 hours community service and time served if you ask me.

In any event, sit me down, cue up some Eek the cat, and you'll meke me a very happy little boy all over again.

I liked the one where he refused to wear the cow catcher because he thought it wasn't cool, and then he got stuck in the snow. And everyone learned a lesson.

What about Samurai Pizza Cats?  The unreal camp theme song! Characters called Polly Ester, Guido Anchovy, Jerry Atric and Seymour Cheese!  The English dialogue dubbed on top of Japanese animation that bore little relevance to whatever was going on!

And of course, the classic line :
" 'I've got a screenplay' That's all you giant robots say!"

"Leela, there's nothing wrong with anything."

Transformers, Ninja Turtles, and Tiny Toons. Man, Tiny Toons had the best characters. And what was cool was their summer vacation special. I still remember how funny Plucky's trip was with Hampton's family.

My top ten in no particular order

 1. The Clangers
 2. Trap Door
 3. Dangermouse
 4. Magic Roundabout (with the Eric Thompson narration)
 5. Roobarb
 6. Bagpuss
 7. Ivor The Engine
 8. Camberick Green, Trumpton, Chigley
 9. Fingerbobs
10. Chorlton and the Wheelies

All of which is very predictable, so to balance things out, here's five underrated kids programmes that should be remembered more fondly than they were...

1. Victor and Hugo
Cosgrove and Halls tribute to Peter Sellers - Victor and Hugo were two incompetant french criminals - Victor bore an uncanny resemblance to Inspector Clouseau, and Hugo whose voice bore an uncanny resemblance to that of Bluebottle from The Goon Show.

2. The Storyteller - The Jim Henson one I mean, but see below... The first series presented us with a gnome like John Hurt telling his dog Grimm Fairy Tales, that really were grim, with some nice animatronics, mixed with some effective shadow puppetry. The second series had a thespian of similar stature, but this time with tunic and toga for togs, telling Greek myths, apparently to the same dog.

3. Handful Of Songs
Two hippies and a guitar (possibly two guitars). They did requests - call that a format for a television programme? Still I remember this one so vividly and with such fondness. The theme song was funky "We've got a handful of songs to sing you / New songs and blue songs and songs to bring you / Happiness / no more no less." Of course being a kids programme, not once did they sing a blue song, perhaps I'm mistaken about this line. Puff the Magic Dragon was a favourite.

4. Stories From Round The World - Actually this was quite often rubbish, but we were drawn in by the animated titles "I'm the storyteller, and my stories must be told / I have many stories for both the young and for the old" - trite so far, but the next verse holds the genius "In Russia I am Ivan, in England I am John, In Germany I'm Johann in Sweden I am Jan!" Very educational really.

5. The Space Sentinels - Filmation nonsense about three youths blessed with Super Powers, and a big giant head telling them what to do. Big Giant Head? Hey, filmation could probably sue third rock! The youths were named (as unlikely as it sounds) Mercury, Hercules and Athena - Naturally Mercury had speed and Hercules immense strength. Athena could transform into animals, which is a bit baffling as Athena was the Greek Goddess of wisdom, and the other two were named after Roman Gods who had at least something to do with their super power. Diana would have been more appropriate - maybe Filmation didn't want to risk taking on DC, whose own major Superheroine was called Diana (aka Wonder Woman)
