    Roobarb & Custard

    Possibly the best theme tune of any kids' TV programme.


    A lot of people think the show was called "Roobarb & Custard" but it was just "Roobarb".

    Our Friends in the North was a very good drama series with Daniel Craig and Christopher Eccleston. No one ever seems to remember it when i mention it.

    And Id like to watch it again but I remember Jake's Progress was good.

    Two excellent shows

    Our Friends In The North seems to be better remembered by critics than than the public for some reason (even though it has Doctor Who and James Bond in it together)

    Dusty’s Trail. It used to be on RTÉ on Saturday mornings. Used to love it.
    Yes great show. Was shown on one of the TV stations in the last year.
    Apple's Way.

    Holmes and Yoyo.

    Me and the chimp ( I always wanted a pet monkey after watching it.)

    The Electric Company -like Sesame Street but less animation.

    Electric company was good.

    Anyone remember The Swiss Family Robinson shown on TV late 70s.

    Space 1999 was my number 1 favourite TV show as a Sci Fi loving kid, even more so than Star Trek OS.
    Especialy loved the Eagle ships.

    I was in college in 1999 and one of the lads got the class hooked on that, presumably it was shown again purely because of the year it was.

    Our Friends In The North is top class. Great use of Don't Look Back In Anger.

    Jake's Progress is decent, although not watched it in about 12/13 days.

    Spent many a night watching crap on tv when everyone else went to bed.

    Night Stand With Dick Dietrick - Spoof of Jerry Springer et al



    Herman's Head - Like the numbskulls in The Beano and Inside Out (Pixar movie)



    I loved Herman's Head, it used to be on Channel 4 mid 90s

    Also, Dream Team on Sky 1 but I think others will remember that programme.

    When I was younger I watched Beverly Hills Teens (cartoon version of 90210).

    Ah I remember this. Wasn’t there also a talking yellow robot of some sort in it? I think it was the prince’s sidekick of some sort.

    Speaking of Sidekicks, there was a short lived kids tv series of the same name. It starred Gil Gerard (who’d played Buck Rogers before that) and some Asian kid who was really good at martial arts.

    Wait till your father gets home.

    The next door neighbor had his own private army:)

    I found out years later that there were lots of edgy political satirical commentaries on the 1970s in it, apparently the guy with the private army was supposed to be Nixon, at the time it all went over my head:o

    Great cartoon though.

    I just started watching "Quantum Leap" I asked peoiple where I work if they ever watched it and most people have not. I was kind of shocked with that. I loved that show as a child.
