    CAPTAIN KIRK -- What was that witch thing, Grott-bag or Tea-bag? There was a kid in it called T-Shirt, anyone remember?

    There was both... cant remember what Tea-Bag was in exactly but I do recall that name....

    Grott-Bag was in a programme with Rod Hull and Emu (cant remember the name either) and she used to chase after the kids in the audienece and take away some to her dungeon <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Or something like that anyway

    Anyway to answer the original question. my faves were......

    Transformers
    Thundercats
    M.A.S.K (THE best 80's kids cartoon ever)
    Ulysses
    Ghostbusters
    Byker Grove (when Ant & Dec were in it)
    and something I still watch today ..................... THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Going Live! Kicked ass over Live and Kicking anyday.
    I no it wasn't a Kids show but wasn't the broomcuboard fantastic. CBBC went downhill after they left that place. Who remebers the puppets that went with the presenters - Edd the Duck, Wilson the Butler, Bobby the Bannana...ahhh memories.
    I had an argument with a mate about a puppet that used to be on CITV about 10+ years ago. Well in the end i won so does anyone else remember Scally the dog?

    I can remember that, with that little red robot mush and the theme tune was wicked.

    Anyone remember the Amazin Cities of Gold or somthing like that. It had a giant golden condor in it I think.

    I vaguely remember cities of gold and wizzbit! Can anyone remember the cartoon about a Dungeons and Dragons ride? I remember I liked it but not much else!

    Danger Mouse - is probably one of the best 80's cartoons. Extremely funny for both kids and adults. Remember Penfold! LOL

    He-Man - used to crack mw up the way the characters ran.

    Super Ted - with the camp bad guy skeleton

    Pob - the gezzer with sticky out ears and really round cheeks that used to spit on the camera lens at the end of the program and used to write his name in it. Ha quality.

    Bananaman - "This is 29, Acacia Road. And this is Eric, the schoolboy who leads an exciting double life. For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs. Eric is Bananaman. Ever alert for the call to action." the jokes were so shit they were funny! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    I could go on and on as I'm sure many of you could. Kids TV aint nothing compared to them days.

    This is a story about an ordinary teddy-bear. When he was made, they found something wrong with him, and threw him away like a piece of rubbish into an old dark storeroom. Then from outer-space, a spotty man bought him back to life with his cosmic dust. He took him to a magic cloud where Mother Nature gave him special powers. That bear became Super Ted!

    OMG!!!!.. How sad am I!?!

    Bitsa. Wasn't that where they made things out of bog rolls and stuff?

    Insidently. Who remembers the school program Words and Pictures? It had that funky pen that used to draw letters.
    Up, down, round and flick
    or something like that.



    Now, have a big toke on this South African drugs-reefer-style spliff doobie.
