    3rd post in this thread... just remembered WIZBIT (with that fool Paul Daniels), drugs can help create wierd things when involved in childrens tv! What was that witch thing, Grott-bag or Tea-bag? There was a kid in it called T-Shirt, anyone remember?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    And Centurions! Those guys, the blue one was called Ace McCloud and his suit could fly. There was a land and a sea guy too, green and yellow. Some women called Crystal was in it too.

    Anyone mentioned He-Man (and the girl, Shera or something)? Visionaries, were those knights turned into holagrams and animals?

    It's all coming back to me, I must've been raised by my television!

    Anyone remember 'Wack-a-day' with Timmy Mallet? I think the worst thing about it is that I can still remember some of the theme tune:

    We're wide-a-wake
    Its good to know your ready and your wide-a-wake
    Turn off the alarm and get-set-goooo..

    Its wack-a-day
    no school today
    so what you gonna do?


    I'm off to do myself in, lol, thats too sad... I can remember half the other things listed as well... lol... memories!! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    Didn't he have some Cockatoo type thing as a friend... it's name escapes me.

    Timmy M also did that tune that got quite high in the charts (possibly No.1). Something about 'An itsi bitsi teeny weeny yellow poka dot bikini, that she wore for the first time today' or am I just talking bolox?

    I remember he had a little mallet called 'Mr Mallet' that he used to hit people with a lot, seemed to have quite a violent nature too... lol

    I know you know this, no point in covering up.. Yes he had a number 1 hit with it (1987?)

    I suppose it was better than Mr Blobby... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    Does anyone remember Puddle Lane

    I can remember really loving that programme
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I cant believe no one remembered to put FRAGIL ROCK on there list, does no one remember this shite that was on??!! That daft one that went travelling all the time and sent post cards and the cool wee green guy/things that were always on diggers and scaffolding.

    There was also MASK with the flying cars and bikes and stuff. Everything else I watched has already been mentioned. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Change the F with the w and you have got me in one :p
