    Re: Los Lobos

    Haha. I remember all the girls getting up to dance to La Bamba in the teenagers' disco/club on a caravan site in Blackpool. Summer of '87. Then my mate requested What Have I Done to Deserve This? by...

    Re: Matchstick buildings

    Aye, I got one. As with yours, there was no chance of it getting finished. I think mine was a church. I was severely disgruntled to get it, to be honest. Sure, I glued a few matches on to start it...
  3. Re: What was this late 70s cartoon about a ferocious little bearded man? Tyrone?

    You know, I think you must be right. Well done and thank you.

    Tyrone is not quite as I remember him, but it all fits. A single series. Shown in 77 in America, so probably a couple of years later...
  4. Re: Your most embarrassing celebrity crushes from the past

    Tracey Ullman, Wincey Willis (the breakfast weather 'girl'), the dancing background Goths from the Spirit in the Sky videos and performances. And Ann Diamond, like an earlier poster.
  5. Re: Plllzzzz help me find an old childhood pc game!!!

    Definitely beans? Not eggs? Because it struck me it could sound like the Dizzy games (if you saw the white egg characters as beans). I did wonder about the Mighty Beanz games, but they came later.

  6. What was this late 70s cartoon about a ferocious little bearded man? Tyrone?

    Hello all,

    I've found myself thinking of a cartoon I watched around 1979 or 1980. It featured a little man with a white beard and he was quite ferocious and often scrapping, I think (a bit like...
  7. Re: 1980(ish) television series set 'down under' with kids and a volcano?

    Sixtyten,

    It's come to me. I kept trying things like Children of the Volcano, and suddenly it hit me. Children of Fire Mountain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children_of_Fire_Mountain

    And a...
  8. Re: 1980(ish) television series set 'down under' with kids and a volcano?

    Hmmm. Thank you. I've read the wiki entry and watched some Youtube clips and I'm not so sure it's this. I can see an episode title mentions a volcano, but I don't remember monsters really. Or...
  9. 1980(ish) television series set 'down under' with kids and a volcano?

    Hello all,

    Can anyone remember a series where there was a boy and a girl on an island, I think, and a volcano was threatening to erupt?

    It was live-action, and I think it aired in 1980, and...
  10. Re: Anyone identify this Action Man type figure from early 70s?

    That Matchbox Fighting Furies suggestion is a good one. Looking at their stuff on Google, I do remember it being like them. However, I've not yet found an image of one with a shirt like mine. Is...
  11. Re: Anyone identify this Action Man type figure from early 70s?

    Hello Sixtyten,

    Yes, after studying your links and some images after typing Madelman into Google, I think I agree. Though I don't really remember snow-shoes, the face and the Parka material seem...
  12. Anyone identify this Action Man type figure from early 70s?

    Hello All,

    I loved my Action Men. I only ever had second hand ones (with hard plastic hands) and other 'tribute' figures, like several 'Little Big Men' and the Bionic Man.

    But one I had...
  13. Re: 'Willy's' 80's sausage/rude toys collection.. Do u remember?

    A 'cool' Auntie bought me the Wicked Willy board game when I was about 16 or 17 in 1986 or 87 (must swiftly add that I never asked for it). There was a fair bit of Wicked Willy stuff about. I suppose...

    Re: vague recollection of a 70's cartoon

    We used to play this in the playground. I was Mercury, and my blond pal was Hercules. Shunning girls as much as we could at that young age, we just conveniently ignored Astra even existed. Looking it...
  15. Re: For novel research, what year did you have your first McDonalds thick shake?

    More replies. Thank you everybody. Reading these, Maybe it's just about feasible my character could have got his hands on a thick shake in the summer of 1979. But if most of my readers (if ever...
  16. Re: For novel research, what year did you have your first McDonalds thick shake?

    Hmm. If only there was a website that listed the year each town got its McDonalds. But it's looking like most of us didn't see a thick shake till 84 or so. Too late for my novel. Might have to lose...
  17. Re: For novel research, what year did you have your first McDonalds thick shake?

    I did think of that, but the scene requires it to be about one lad turning up with something 'new'. Wimpies have been around since the 50s, haven't they? Unless they only started doing the...
  18. For novel research, what year did you have your first McDonalds thick shake?

    Hello all,

    I'm just editing a novel I'm writing, and I have a scene where a lad turns up to his gang's den with a McDonalds shake, and it's the first they've ever seen on this rough council...

    Re: hymns

    Our hymns were on huge dangling books or pads that were suspended high up on both sides of the assembly hall in my primary school. Tatty-edged, they seemed so archaic. I can't recall if I ever saw...

    The cousin seems unable to remember the sex or type of main character. But I shall ask if it was a mouse. And see if that jogs a memory.
  21. A 1980s (?) children book where colour is stolen out of the world

    Hello,

    You've all helped me before, and I hope I've done my bit.

    A cousin has asked me about a book, read in school in the early 1980s, where all the colour has been stolen from a world. The...

  23. What were those slip-on shoes called that lads wore in the early 80s?

    Hello,

    In 1981 and 1982, all of us lads wore these small leather slip-on shoes. They'd be leather, and there wasn't much of them. We loved the way they showed off our white sports socks!!! (How...

    Lewis's had a fantastic third floor that had a whole half dedicated to its toy department. And more, in the lead up to Christmas. I loved it as a child. Even ignoriong the pink tedium of the Sindy...
