"Sharky and George, clear up any mystery *duh duh duh*"

I loved Sharky and George. I remember it had quite nice music and that Sharky had a rather nice hat.

There used to be this kids TV program called 'The Riddlers' and by christ was that freaky! I used to hate it! Also, Fraggle Rock used to freak me out as a child. I think it was that big shaggy dog. And dont even get me started on Sesame Street. I have a huge problem with that program! The big yellow perverted bird and that dude that lives in the bin *shudders*
Even as a 20 year old I have issues with that show...

Has no one yet mentioned the body of work by Sid and Marty Krofft?  Their most likely drug-induced shows include HR Pufnstuf, Lidsville, and The Bugaloos.  These were all made totally on the cheap but they made up for lack of money with sheer weirdness.  I'm sure they affected the mental development of many a child from the early 1970s.  Perhaps more disturbing, the Kroffts were also responsible for the Donny and Marie show, as well as the Brady Bunch variety show.

Now Lurrr is a PEELer you can count on.   tongue and not at all rude, like some I could mention :glares in fazey's general direction:

GM: I used to love everything to do with the muppets! Once I got up early to watch Seseme Street, which was a special feat for me, but I fell asleep.   hmpf I really loved that program "The muppets tonight" which used to be on every Friday. Fraggle rock was good too   big grin

The Brady Bunch:   laff   laff  That is the funniest program I have ever seen.

I think I'm still scared of some of the stuff they aired on Goosebumps. Then there was one show that annoyed the hell out of me when I was young. It was the something something World of Richard Scary, I think.

I wasn't born during the 80's so I have no idea what you peopel are talking about,but I do remeber some disturbing kid's shows from the 90's!

One was where there was this monsters under a bed that hd a civilization.It was claymation and the main charactors where a green jerkass monster,a stichy rag doll and a blue liquid monster.

Also,there was a cartoon western with co cowboys.As in the cows walked and talked like humans and all other charactors were cows.

Bananaman - I can understand a "homerjay" level of obsession with bananas, I even expect it from most girls, but Bananaman was and older guy who took it just a bit too far for comfort...

i remember this one Raggedy Ann and Andy movie that involved a jack-o-lantern that cried pumpkin seeds. He was sad cause no one wanted him so the movie centered around the rag dolls finding him a home in time for halloween. I loved it at the time but now looking bad...

@GM:  The Riddlers?  I definitely remember the show and I think I liked it but for the life of me I cannot remember anything about it.  Presumably they made riddles at some point.  Oh and Fraggle Rock was awesome! big grin

@Cat:  Yes, either amazingly or unfortunately (I can't decide), Button Moon was exactly like that.

If you look closely you would realise that Balamory is actually the Scottish island from 'the Wicker Man'. Notice how both groups of people act in the insanely cheerful way? Less sex though.

Na, I can be rude and zany when I want to. I'm just too busy. *plays with yoyo*

I mentioned Time Masters in the anime thread, although it was a french cartoon rather than an anime. I saw it when I was young and I've not got it out of my head since. The design was real arty, and there were giant hornets and some dodgy blokes trying to save a kid from them.

Bananaman was amazing! I remember I used to come home from school and it was the first thing I watched when I got home! Good times  smile



There was this cartoon on when I was little called Katie and Orbie, it used to be shown early on C4 in the mornings. It was about this alien - Orbie - and the girl - Katie - who found and adopted him. The characters never used to speak, it was just a narrator.

Oh god I remember that... It was some kind of island with all these animals on... or something... there was a big white thing i think, and a snake.

And also Sharky And George, that was great... I remember even less about that though... I can just about remember that there was dancing in the credits or something.

I liked Bananaman when it was out.

I wonder if anyone else watched Super-Ted? Tex used to scare me.
    But the thing that scared me the most was Watership Down..... With the ghosts..... and the blood......  eek

I think I've seen an advert for it on another creepy children's video. Is one of them called Jeff?
I  think it's good! It teaches kids important life lessons, like: "it's ok to wear trousers that are tight around the crotch if you are a (suspected) child molestor." and "This is what happens if you drop out of school to get a job in the entertainment industry..."

Gleno: Superted rocked!      love But spotty was a pansy.

Coilette: Tex! I remember him! I saw a wild west episode and he went "Yippie ay oh yee haw" or something. That's the only line I ever remembered from superted.

Bananaman? Never heard of that one.....

Ohhh, GOD I wish I DIDN'T know this, but that was the "Cow Boys of Moo Mesa", it's most memorable aspect being that they rode horses. Think about that. Anthropomorphic cow.. riding photorealistic pony. ....AHHHH. And they loved sasparilla. It was like crack to them!

The previously mentioned 'Bump in the Night' was probably my favourite show for about 3 years, before my mother let me watch The Simpsons. Now that was one damn fine show. I used to have every episode of that on tape. Happy memories   smile....

Count Duckula was a very wierd show with that teleporting castle but I watched it everyday and still love it.

I remember Mutant League was pretty wierd. It was about mutants that competed in sports events and promotions.

Also Aliens in the Family which was about a family of Aliens and humans that lived together.

Someone mentioned Muppets Tonight, I remember George Takei was on an episode of that but at thea time I didn't know who he was.

Speaking of Muppets I also watched the Muppet Babies alot. Gonzo was my favorite, they always called him a wierdo.

And there was also Salty's Lighthouse which was a blantant rip-off of Shining Time Station, just replace trains and railroads with boats and the real life sequences with animation and you got SL.

And finally Shining Time Station, which still remains one of my favorite children's shows of all time, especialy the first season where they had Ringo Starr as Mr.Conductor, he was the best Mr.Conductor. The rest of the season's were ok but they didn't have the feel of the first season that I loved. Mabey because most of the cast was changed.

Salty's lighthouse! I remember that. I watched it at about 5am in the morning once. Something about a boy who had a lighthouse and had a friend who was a boat, or something....

What about that program that's on now? You know, my parents are aliens. That is the biggest load of rubbish that I've ever seen, and I've been on a school trip to a tip.

But the thing I hate about all "wholesome" children's programs is that the characters always have to learn a lesson at the end of an epsiode. Can't they just get drunk and have a wild orgy without regretting it for once?!  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/mad.gif">

Well you need wholesome programs to show just how evil the ones we like are!
We don't want to become desensitized now, do we?
*bats cat in the hat*  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smiley_laughevil.gif">

What was that other show with the lighthouse in it?
It was aussie live action and all about spooky and strange stories that happened to these kids and their dad who lived in a lighthouse.
Scary themesong too...

The lists goes on.

Re: SuperTed

For those who don't read my LJ.  This gives me another chance to share my friend Ryan's late-night drunken random text-message:

"Spotty. If he brought Super Ted to life, why was he Super Ted's sidekick? Why didn't he make loads of Super Teds and get Mother Nature to give them all special powers?"

He goes on:

"It's not a stupid question. If I brought my wardrobe to life, I wouldn't become it's crime-fighting sidekick. That would be fucking daft."

I rest my case.

@GM: How does Sprocket The Dog from Fraggle Rock freak you out?  He was the only thing remotely non-freaky about that show.

Oh! No-one has mentioned Henry's Cat yet! That was an absolutely awesome show.

I actually used to have that book..hours of fun.
And there was a show when I was a little older, probably about 8-10 called Spooks of Bottle Bay that i was probably to old for but used to enjoy nonetheless.

That was kinda freaky, but I remember it clashed with Tailspin and I was the only one in my class who really didn't like that show.  I mean The Jungle Book gang in a plane? Pleeeaase.
