    I wouldn't be surprised if Rylan Clark-Neal or someone like that would be hosting.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    And remember it was Crackerjack's Peter Glaze (the straight man to Don Maclean) who invented the "Doh!" catchphrase long before Homer Simpson!

    They could be the two that most people might be thinking of

    Stu Francis is still around - but probably in the theatre and on cruises only.

    Before my time, so I wouldn't know, although I have never heard anyone refer to that.

    I watched Crackerjack in the early 1980s when Stu Francis presented it. The Krankies and the Great Soprendo regularly featured on the programme and Chas & Dave provided the theme tune.

    Same memories as me, also a boy puppet who would do a funny walk to The Entertainer was a common guest.

    Does anyone remember that Stu Francis Children's ITV show Crush a Grape which was on Friday afternoons circa autumn 1988? It was made by Border TV, (no it didn't have Derek Batey in it), and the title was obviously based on Francis' catchphrase.

    I assume that the Crush a Grape was more or less Crackerjack in a similar form.

    As part of the target audience when it was on in the 70's, I always used to think it was rubbish, and hated the sound of all the screaming kids in the audience. So yes, probably.
