When I was a child, there was nothing better than turning the television on on a Saturday morning and being entertained by dedicated children’s TV.
Which, is why I have turned on this week and been baffled by the lack of ANYTHING that would remotely be interesting to little kids.
If you have a child that loves cooking programmes or ingesting the current affairs and the state of the world over their bowl of Cornflakes, then fair enough. You’re probably happy enough chatting about Ebola panics over pancakes.
For the rest of us though? Bring back something the kids can watch for fun.
It’s not Saturday morning without any of these.
Trev and Simon on Going Live.
“Swing your pants now….”
Or there was Live and Kicking.

What I had for lunch yesterday will slip out of my head. A phone number from approximately 20 years ago is apparently still up there intact in jingle form.
Wacaday Mallet’s Mallet.
“Look at each other and shout “BLEEEURGH!”
We have a foam Mallet’s Mallet Pinky Punky here. It’s strangely satisfying to bop each other over the head with it.
Bring back Saturday morning telly!
