  • I remembered another two shows for this list... the Tripods, and also the Narnia shows from the late '80s. I have no Tripods to watch now though I liked it then (and had read the books), but I do have those Narnia DVDs that were free with some newspaper.

  • In some American comics readers could send in clothing designs and see their names in print... didn't they ever do that with Bunty or Twinkle, or not think of it? I remember gluing some paper dolls to heavier card paper before cutting them out (but not the clothes). They had slots and extra bits so...

  • I forgot about Rupert Bear! I just got the first set on DVD not so long ago. There are three volumes but one was good enough for scratching the nostalgia itch; very well made puppets show, Mary Turner and Christine Glanford who had worked on the Anderson 'Supermarionation' shows worked on Rupert....

    My Gran always had salt & vinegar around but I could only take one or two as the vinegar on them would make my mouth sort of burn (never liked it on chips either). There are modern chips I will avoid because they load the salt on too heavy, will but the low salt ones if I see them. I usually like...

  • Have Codename Icarus and Moondial on DVD, also a compilation of Basil Brush. Heard of a couple of others but most in the long list are definitely obscure to me! They seem to be arranged by dates.

  • I remember having a toy that had little plastic records very much the same as those with the doll but it was a red plastic toy telephone.

  • Favorite non-U.S. live-action children's drama series

    Another inventory of shows I remember fondly, some of which I have available to watch now, some I'd love to be able to see again. Wonder what I may've forgotten here?

    Perhaps others might contribute their own lists?

  • Favorite non-U.S. puppets and animated children's series

    Made up a sort of inventory of shows I remember fondly, some of which I have available to watch now, some I'd love to be able to see again. I wonder if I've forgotten any?

    Perhaps others might contribute their own lists?

    I was more not geographically located to have been around a Northern Soul 'scene', though we did experience the fringes of the Mod with scooters revival of the early '80s, and it's definitely true they brought some overlooked gems to deserved attention both U.S. and UK recorded. Quality DJs are definitely...

    He was a major talent, Canada was very proud of him. Like many comedians he could also do straight dramatic characters extremely well. Wish he was still around.

    Some great music from the '60s before my time. I have a few CD collections with Northern Soul in their title of various artists; a few real killers but always some real dogs you wonder why they included them. That would've been my scene had I been around back then... soul and mod, but I'd be listening...

  • I'm not sure if I ever had just one. I went all in for the 2-Tone ska in my teens, wore checkerboard patterns, and I would've picked The Bodysnatchers over all, but they weren't around long and didn't record as much as others. Maybe The Beat took second place back then; most likely to wear their t-shirt...

    I used to love the series, watched it avidly, but don't think they ever ended it with that amnesty or in any other way.
