    i watched the whole thing again a couple of years ago and thought it was still mint even as a adult, it was probably a bit over the top for a childrens show actually.

    As if! I was about 12 when it first came on so there's no way you were 18.

    Anyway mine was The Raccoons.

    Supposedly Mysterious Cities of Gold, despite being made in France, had some character design done uncredited by Myazaki (he of Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away fame) - which gives some sense of why it has such a strong feel - mind you it also has a flying gold bird, so gotta love that.

    As to my favourite - can't beat the frankly bizarre Chorlton and the Wheelies

    bloody hell, i just looked and it started in 1992, i thought it were more recent than that, i didnt watch it anyway but i remember it being on.

    Racoons was class on a saturday morning before Going Live.

    Now this is a serious discussion...

    I remember Racoons during Going Live / Live and Kicking - not before it. I may be wrong though

    I can't remember the names of my favourite childhood TV shows, they were all on ITV after school but I was too young to remember the names.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Before about the age of 7 I loved Fireman Sam, Playdays, Wizadora, Rugrats.. From then onwards it was Sister Sister, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Kenan and Kel, The Story of Tracy Beaker etc..
    Lol kids TV was crap when I was young(er!!) :p
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'd say any marvel cartoon, ren and stimpy and roccos modern life.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i had completely forgotten the mysterious cities of gold til this thread!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles for me.

    As for the mods, don't believe you. TV didn't exist back in the Victorian age. ;)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I loved mysterious cities of gold too :heart: and dungeons and dragons and Knightmare
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    im not sure if anyone can remember or is going to be able to help me but...
    it was a programme on itv after school. it was on when i was 5 so year...93/94. from what i remember it was a maze and there was a knight or something and he couldnt see and the contestants (kids) would have to get past him without him gathering your position????

    (probably the worst description ever)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Saved by the bell. Except the college years. And Jr. high kind of sucked too.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Knightmare was awesome.

    Also, Prince Valiant, Count Duckula, the Raggy Dolls, Penny Crayon and Bucky O'Hare (I have the whole thing on DVD)

    Seem to remember it was the Racoons and The Flintstones before Going Live (which always, always started at dead on 9.25am for some reason)

    Jimbo the Jet Set, Brum, and The Family Ness are worth a shout too :thumb:
