    Just remembered a few more,......Paulus the(little),woodgnome. I think that was a Dutch import?

    Here come the Double Deckers.

    Follyfoot.

    Rent-a-ghost.

    Ivor the Engine.

    Pardon my Genie.

    Roberts Robots.

    Flashing Blade i think was a French import, as was Belle and Sebastian. They were always on, on a Saturday i think,and always at School holidays! The Owl Service was from the books by Alan Garner.

    I loved Top Cat. Though, when I watched it, it was called Boss Cat.
    Was there a hint of the cat imitating Phil Silvers?

    imdb covers both those points:

    The character Benny the Ball was voiced by Maurice Gosfield. He also played Private Duane Doberman on The Phil Silvers Show (1955), which "Top Cat" was based on. When the cartoon was shown on British television in the 1960s and 1970s the title was changed to Boss Cat because there was a brand of cat food named Top Cat.

    It always bothered me that he only brushes one side of his mouth, not both during the end credits:




    (I probably should get over this - it's been long enough!)

    Before my time, but was Bleep and Booster part of Blue Peter?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
