Chuckle vision! Those guys were teh shit. My friend actually has a genuine signed picture of them!

What about bodger and badger? That was pretty disturbing. I remember the mouse had a squeaky voice and badger always wanted to eat mashed potatoes.   I went to see bodger and badger live at the Neptune for one of my birthday parties!    <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smiley_love.gif">

T'me! t'you!

There's was always something inherantly disturbing about a father/son 'comedy' team doing seaside childrens humour.

Although, I might add, not in anyway as disturbing as The Crankies.

I can still remember the theme tune for Bodger & Badger: "Bodger and badger, bodger and badger la la la lala, la la la lala...."  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">
The only thing i can remember about the chuckle bothers was their bike/car thing that they drove around in, in fact i think 'chuckle vision' is still on sometimes.

The Crankies are equally annoying too. They give Scots people a bad name, we don't all talk like that..... Jimmy...

Chuckle Vision and Bodger and Badger were great. I grew out of Chuckle Vision first, and unfortunately Bodger and Badger went downhill. Did they start a hotel business or was that something else?

I don't care if you liked it. I was just saying that clay animation is the scarest thing on T.V. I also thought that that old T.V. show with the giant owl was unusal.

In any case....

Does anyone remember Bobobobs (sp???) I have a memory of a video of these pirates sailing around in space, but somehow they could breathe and although they had the technology to survive in space they still used cannons and could only travel verrrry slowly.

I'm pretty sure it was a series, because I had several episodes on tape. Maybe it was all a wonderful drug induced dream.....

Yeah, they were always too runny on Bodger and Badger as well. Mashed potatoes should be more lumpy than that, it always seemed like liquid on that show. Probably for comedy value. That way, they probabaly thought it actually looked funny when Simon ended up with a bowl on his head and it ran all down his face and whatever.

Anyways, great show. And yeah I remember the Raggydolls as well, they were cool.

What?! Sesame street does not suck. I'll have you know that it's the muppets of childrens televison programming, why i have fond memories of watching it at lunchtime during primary school. There was Oscar the grouch, Big bird, Elmo and loads of other crazy characters, bah, you've crushed all of my childhood memories you have...

What age was Sesame Street aimed at?  When I was a young 'un like 3-5, I always remembered thinking "I know how to do a 'p'!".  Maybe this is because I was taught to read and write by my parents at an early age but I always think that these 'tots' programs are somewhat patronising to kids.

Hey, Dinosaurs was great, it had social satire and was funny as hell.

One show I can recall was david the knome, it was about these knomes living in a forest or something. Also I remember a movie called Riki Tiki Tabi, it was about a mongoose I think.

There used to be this show on CITV called Woof!, about a boy who turned into a dog, although you actually never saw the transformation (a bus would go past him and then he'd be a dog!).

Who remembers The Demon Headmaster? Absolute genius  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Nobody answered my question about the creepy lighthouse show...
Remember, it had all strange stuff happening in it, but those kids and their dad just kept on living there?
I remember one episode where it was like Alfred Hitchcocks Birds, except they just shit everywhere instead of pecking people!  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smiley_laff.gif">

It sure does.   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

I always preferred The Electric Company.  Any children's show that steals joke ideas from Monty Python's Flying Circus is okay in my book.

Maybe so, but it was still a funny show.  Dinosaurs did for the Cretaceous period what Futurama did for the 31st century.

The demon headmaster? God, that was freaky. But a few pages ago someone mentioned Goosebumps. That freaked the hell out of me. God I was so scared!   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/eek.gif">

Does anyone remember the ghost hunter? It's probably too recent for most of the oldies on this board (  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">) but that was one screwed up program. It was about a woman who went around hunting ghosts and keeping them in jars and some boy had to save them every single bloody episode! The only scary part of that show was the beginning credits with the spooky hooded figure. :shudders: ergh.

I remember Aquila. It was about these schoolboys who went to an archelogical site one day and found a roman spaceship. They kept it in their garage. The plot line consisted mainly of them flying around in invisible mode and hiding the spaceship from the grown ups, who tried to cramp their "style". And of course, there was the inevitable problem of people bumping into the spaceship whilst it was invisble.

Another program was Bernard's watch. It was about a kid with a magical watch that could stop time. He got it by sitting at the end of a rainbow and wishing he had more time because he forgot to put his trousers on. This postman just randomly came along and gave it to him. He could stop time and cheat on tests and stuff! I hated him. I needed that watch! Bastard!

Ghosthunter! I really liked that. Apart from the Ghosthunter herself, every week you'd hear her say  "I'm gonna get the Shoe-shine BOY!". And then they did the 2nd series when they travelled into the future. That was kinda weird.

Aquila = amazing. There was that next door neighbour that was always suspicious of the boys.

Bernard's Watch - I should be too old to watch this show, but I liked it! It was better at first though when there was just a narrator, the characters didn't talk. They should have made Bernard a teenager. Instead of just doing stuff to help other people, he could have done much cooler, sexier stuff  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

I went to see those guys do a show at a theatre in Oxford when I was smaller. They went around spraying foam on the audience and squawking that terrible "to me, to you" catchphrase.

Anyone remember The Moomins???

The Moomins was always very strange for me, especially some little white stick glowing men that I once saw in it.

Ghost Hunter was ok but hearing that woman say "shoe shine BOY" with such vehemence each week got quite annoying. Chucklevision has always made me laugh and they are still making them (which I only recently found out). Aquilla got a bit annoying as you can only watch some annoying children flying around for so long.

A strange programme I do remember was "To me, to You" a gameshow run by the Chuckle Brothers.

I think that was one of the best children's programmes i've ever seen, the first few seasons were the best, but the latter ones were still reasonable. I think i even saw it in panto or whatever at Bromley Theatre!

Saw it a couple of times, but i was a bit old for it by then, so it wasn't worth watching.

Along with "The Deamon Headmaster" this is one of my childhood favourites! Aswell as TDH, it was much better the first few times, however the latter seasons were much better.

I also remember "The Queen's Nose", another of the classic TV shows. Much better first few times, but then they started strechting it and got rid of the main characters, bah!

Anyone seen the current CBBC lineup? What i see when i get in is rubbish, all very low-grade, cheap, PC programming. The only quality program that i sometimes watch is "Short Change", but since that's not fiction, it doesn't really fit with the category.

Seriously, that program sucks, it's just training another generation of complainers and price freaks.

I remember the queens nose. It did get bad after they put in about 50 million people who knew about the coin thing. It was better when it was a secret and strange unexplainable things happened.....

The first season of The Queen's Nose was brilliant. I loved it so much. But then it got crappy, and when I last checked it didn't even have Harmony in it any more. Something to do with a children's home or something?

Today I got to watch an old childhood film of mine, The Witches. It still freaks me out when the boy turned into a mouse  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smiley_hmpf.gif">

I never really liked the Queen's Nose, but I remember that in the first series the girl's parents were really mean and only her uncle was a nice person. After that was droppped things became boring.

Short Change is quite good I think. Yes it can seem a bit whingey but I've seen shops extort younger children quite well so it isn't all bad.
