If there’s one thing I used to love when I was little, it was watching cartoons. At the risk of sounding like an old lady, “they just don’t make kids TV like they used to.”
In the Night Garden and Waybuloo? Um, no. THIS is what they should be watching. They just don’t know what they’re missing out on.
Mr Benn. Used to live in Festival Road, and regularly visit his local fancy dress shop where he sloped off into the dressing rooms and disappeared into far off lands. Where he went depended on what costume he was wearing.
Inspector Gadget. “Go go gadget arms!” I always wanted the gadget helicopter hat thing myself. “Go go gadget helicopter!” Nope, it never worked for my hat. Pah.
“I’ll get you next time Gadget. Mwahahaha. He never did. Clever, that Gadget man.
Dangermouse. Secret agent mouse and his little sidekick, Penfold.
The vegetarian Count – Count Duckula. “From the heart of Translyvania, in the hall of vampire fame, yeah…”
The cartoon world has lost its voice somewhat these past few weeks with the death of one half of Cosgrove Hall creators, Mark Hall, who created Count Duckula and Dangermouse. RIP :-(
Jamie and The Magic Torch. A contender for best children’s cartoon theme tune EVER.
