    Default Crackerjack is back!

    I remember this show all the way back to Eamon andrews in the 60s...now it's back on CBBC but will kids today still go for the madcap antics that used to prevail in earlier versions?....guess time will tell.

    I hope it's on Fridays at 5.00 pm, otherwise it wouldn't work.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Wasn't it on at 4:55pm?

    I always thought they said "It's Friday! It's five to five! It's Crackerjack!"

    I guess the stacking cabbage game will be a lot easier now, piling the kids with a music player, TV, calculator, game player...... oh it's a smart phone!

    I am certain that it was on at 5.00 pm originally back in the 1950s, but was later moved five minutes earlier to 4.55 pm due to some scheduling difficulties? I am certain I read that somewhere.

    When old kids shows come back i worry if it will be a success will kids have the attention span what with all the technology they have been it phones internet etc.

    Will kids now think the same of it as we did.

    Can’t see many being happy to get a crackerjack pencil as a prize ... they’d be expecting an iPad
