    I was surprised that it was made by TSW - I would have thought as the London Underground was implicated and had the two main stars of Minder, I thought that Thames would have made that series.

    There was another cartoon series called Mr Rossi which I think was Spanish and was seen on Children's ITV.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Is Heathcliff a forgotten / obscure cartoon now? It was shown in the mid 1990s. It could have been on Channel 4.

    I always remember it being on CBBC, the first 2 versions are obscure, but the 3rd with the Catillac Cats is a bit more iconic, probably it's got a bit more a of mid 1980s vibe to it.

    + Wacky Races from '68

    + & the spin-off Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines (or renamed Dastardly and Muttley in the UK) from 1969 to 1970. The iconic song Stop the Pidgeon was the theme song

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    A further spin-off was The Perils of Penelope Pitstop--a play on an old serial The Perils of Pauline. Pitstop was joined by the Ant Hill Mob from Wacky Races plus a new villan The Hooded Claw. Trivia...Frankie Goes To Hollywood's The Power of Love namechecks the villan "I'll protect you from the Hooded Claw..."

    There was a single cartoon with characters called Bunny and Claude, a parody of Bonnnie and Clyde - does anyone remember that?

    There was just one cartoon and it was repeated a few times.

    Anyone remember Aubrey, the orange blobby man who used to have a bell ring over his head when he had an idea.

    The opening titles had him drive a car while it fell to pieces.

    I used to watch "Wait til your father gets home" an American domestic sitcom type cartoon. Used to be on late-ish in the mid 70s.
