Whippersnappers. I was too busy holding back the Soviet hordes to be watching children's programs in the '80s.

Don't know any of these programmes. Then again wasn't a "kid" in the 1980's. Didn't you watch Blue Peter, Magpie ? :lol:

None of this looks in the same league as Oliver Postgates stuff.

I acknowledge bias.....

... but you are right in any case. And well done for resisting the urge to post a yt link. This whole thread seems like part of an FSB attempt to overload internet hubbs across the western world ... must check to see whether singingpig are sharing fave episodes of HomesUnderTheHammer. :ph34r:

For foreign dubbed stuff I remember:

The Flashing Blade - THAT had a cracking theme tune

White Horses - nice tune too

The Singing Ringing Tree- a lot of anti-communist metapohrs in there apparently, the only way East European artists could express themselves was through kids' TV. It was a bit weird.

The Water Margin - not strictly kid's TV but I loved it as a teenager

And may I give an honourable mention to Chorlton and the Wheelies? Little old laaady - Fiona the kettle witch.

Edit: looked it up, it was Fenella, not Fiona, sorry. :D

I used to love the tellybots which have either been forgotten by TV history or I've gotten the name wrong because this is all I could find of them on google.

Dude, those are the Telebugs - everyone knows that. Actually, I hadn't even thought about them in more than 25 years!

Shame the last government thought the Bagpuss episode in which the mice have a chocolate biscuit factory as an economic model for the whole country.

In fact, the mice are very reminiscent of New Labour with their monotonous 'we will fix it' chirruping - yeesss you did 'fix' it.

Saw these two in the 60's the first time round..Robinson Crusoe had a fab theme tune too. The Singing Ringing Tree was a seriously scary programme for young kids!

Not 80's but 70's.

Don't watch if you don't want to have nightmares:

That really used to shit me up.
