As a child of the Eighties, I’ve been left feeling a bit giddy that one of my favourites, Dangermouse is being brought back to life and to a new generation of children.
Originally voiced by Sir David Jason, the new version sees Pointless game show host Alexander Armstrong taking on the voice of the super mouse, and the late Terry Scott (his sidekick Penfold) is to be replaced too.
Apparently Superted and the Clangers are to make a return as well.
There’s always the worry that ‘new fangled’ versions of old favourites will be messed around with too much, so it will be good to see what the new episodes bring.
The 80’s had a glut of brilliant children’s programmes, and here’s just a few more I’d bring back!
Remember any of these?!
A saggy old cloth cat, but Emily loved him.
“Dance your cares away, worries for another day…”
“It’s not much of a pretty life, when you’re just a pretty face, just to be whoever you are is no disgrace…”
“When Eric eats a banana…”
These were just a few of my favourites, and would love to see these brought back to the screen. Not necessarily re-made, just brought back in all their original glory!
What was your favourite children’s show, and are you in favour of them making a comeback or should they stay in our memories?
