 Your friend is wise.

I'd actually forgotten that superted was brought to life by spotty. Wasn't he thrown out of a bear factory or something?

Juli: I used to LOVE scooby doo. Sometimes I even got scared by the ghosts, but they always turned out to be Mr. Hargreves, the gamekeeper in a mask, who wanted to scare away the owners of the old castle so they wouldn't discover the gold buried by their most famous ancestor 100 years ago. And he would have gotten away with it to, if it wasn't for those meddling kids and their dumb dog.....

He was indeed.

We did discuss this a few nights later in the pub.  Quite why Spotty didn't choose a less tatty bear to bring to life is beyond us.

Also, surely the power of administering life to the lifeless is a greater power than just being able to fly, don't you think?

You're like the fun vampire, but instead of sucking blood, you just suck...

Look at this classic old joke to see why:
Scooby and Shaggy were always being freaked out by ghosts and ghouls, but no one else saw them before Scoob and Shaggy.
Scooby and Shaggy always had the munchies.
Shaggy always thought Scooby was talking and was the only one who could hear him and understand him.
Scooby and Shaggy always fell into the trap that was intended for the monster because they were tripping over themselves and couldn't see where they were going.
They were always deluded and warped by thinking they were dressed up in some costumes and entertained the monster.
Shaggy always said "like" to the extreme, i.e. "like ZOIKS, Scoob, let's get outta here!!" What's a ZOIK?
Scooby and Shaggy were always the ones in the back of the van (doing who knows what).
They drove around in the MYSTERY MACHINE, which had that weird trippy design on it's side.
Shaggy and Scooby were always giddy and laughing.
Look at Shaggy; the way he dressed, his goatee, etc., 'nuff said.


Hmm, I have been told I look like Shaggy before, when i am unshaven and scruffy.

In many ways spotty was an idiot. I suppose he was scared of going the superhero thing alone.
But it's a backwards show really. The superhero is meant to be tall and the sidekick is meant to be small. Plus, the superhero is always the one who rescued the sidekick, who, eternally grateful, agrees to help them in their fight against baddies. It's madness!   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

Thats cool that you've even heard of them. Whenever I mention them, nobody seems to know or remember them. And I can't quite really remember what it was about either. These 2 puppets that shared a house with this woman, and they got up to adventures and whatnot. Something like that. But I used to hate it. And the theme music used to freak me out...

I sucessfully forgot about most of these shows [ie Bump In The Night, after seeing that one pic I remembered the whole opening sequence and that blue squooshy guy in it] until you all mentioned them. THANKS XD
I remember the only disturbing thing about Heathcliff was that his owner seemed to think he was a girl and named him Sonja.

I have three little cousins. One is 3, one's 2, and the other is 1 1/2, and they all LOVE "The Wiggles" and "Wiggles Network", or whatever it's called. When I baby-sit them, I have to sit through the whole thing...

 For those who have never seen it, it's everything that Venus said, plus one guy (Jeff) always falls asleep, there's a green dinosaur that eats roses, a clueless pirate, a dancing dog, and a purple octopus. I have been scarred for life by these four Australian men in spandex.

I used to have a Rhubarb and Custard annual which I really liked but only saw the show once or twice, so I have fonder memories of Henry's Cat.  Aww, sitting on the living room floor with my mummy sitting on the chair by me, I have candy and am watching Henry's Cat.  One of my earliest memories.
I think I liked the Riddlers even though I can't really remember it...but then I used to like the weird shows as a kid.  I had a Magic Roundabout video and loved it.
I think my favorite show as a young child 2-5 was The Little Miss and Mr. Men though.  I absolutely adored that.

I remember the Riddlers but I didn't watch it often. I remember they were those weird puppets dressed like gypsies or something.

Anyone remember Hector's House? I didn't see it until I was in my teens but that was just weird. It probably didn't help that it was translated from French, and neither did that frog (Kiki?).

In a similar vein, did anyone watch Parsley the Lion? I loved that one as Parsley had that book he conjoured up out of thin air. I also got nicknamed Parsley by my Mum (Me=Peter, Parsley= Peterzili. My mum's a gardner, can't you tell?)

And on the subject of The Magic Roundabout, I've also been nicknamed Dylan by a few people. Any wonder why?

Parsley the Lion! Did he live in a big garden place or something? I think I had a big video with an episode of that on it. I wish I still had it.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/frown.gif">

The raggy dolls?!

I remember them! Even though my memory of them is confined to a single episode of them going off in a plane to have a picnic in a field. I also remember there was a french one who was forever saying "Oh dear".

I think it's still on now actually, of course, it isn't as good as it was in the old days....

Ooh, I have a video of that! There's a great episode on there where the owner of the toy factory goes on holiday to the seaside and the raggy dolls go with him! He wears a knotted handkerchief and all sorts of old things. It's great! It's all the more funny because he's northern, and those accents are a laugh!

Does anyone remember The Dreamstone? That was creepy! The noops were weird.

My friend lent that to me! Pity I wasn't paying attention when I watched it. All I can remember is about some race of weird things dying out, and there were only two of them left.

Some quick googling bring up this:
Another planet, another time. 1000 years ago the Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began. Now the time of the great conjunction of the three suns is near. If the crystal is not healed now the control of the evil Skekses will last forever. Jen the last of the Gelfings nearly exterminated by monsters controlled by the Skekses starts his dangerous journey to find the missing shard of the crystal. Will he be able to heal the crystal and restore order on the planet?

My favorite show when I was little was also the favorite of almost every Canadian/American boy (as well as some girls) born in the mid-80's, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not sure if it qualifies as a children's TV show, but it deserves a mention.

Anyone think clay animation is freaky? I find it horrifying. Dunno why. For example:

Wallace & Grumet scares the living shit out of me

Whatever one the best short-animation at the Acadamey Awards this year scared the crap out of me (and worst I had the lights out which scared me more).

It's very scarey for me. I really don't know why. My poor pitaful life.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smiley_cry.gif">

Jan Svankmajer or the brothers Quay are pretty scary.  And Fred Stuhr's Tool videos, which are pretty much ripoffs of the brothers Quay.  It's not claymation per se, but it's stop-motion animation.  Not at all for childrens, I would guess.  All the clockwork toys, thread, and meat make for a distinctly nauseating atmosphere.

Alas for you, spacedal. Wallace and Gromit are awesome. I wouldn't really qualify it exclusively as a kids show though.

And I believe the film you're thinking of is Harvey Krumpet, which definately isn't a kids show.

In any case....

Meeeeeeeeooooooooooow.
Ah, Henry's Cat. Best themesong ever. Both of them.

Anyone remember You Can't Do that on Television? Possibly the grottiest kids show ever... but now that I think of it, I'm not even sure that it was a kids show...    <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/confused.gif">

Fazeshift: You mentioned a show with a lighthouse that was Australian. I think you were refering to 'Round the Twist'. Most of the stories are based on books by Paul Jennings, a successful Australian author.

I just realized another strange kids show: Corneil and Bernie. It's a cartoon with a smart dog with a British accent owned by a stupid high-schooler. But it vaguely reminds me of Pokemon.
Also, I feel like another picture of 'Bump in the Night'

 One of the few shows containing a Yorkshire accented dog. Hmmm.
Certain things that these shows have in common:
1. Hallucinating children (Esp. in the case of Mona the Vampire)
2. Possessed toys
3. Possessed animals
