More childhood memories …

The other day when I was thinking about my favourite cartoon character I was also reminded of some other childhood favourites who didn’t quite qualify as “cartoons” because they are puppet-like characters rather than being drawn.

Here are some of them that I remembered very fondly. Did any of them play a part in your childhood too?

There is one of them that had a bit of a cult following as late as my university years, and a group of us in my hall of residence used to get up early on a Saturday morning every week to watch. Can you pick which one that was ?

Another bike ride tonight after work, again very windy but at least it was sunny and dry. I was happy with the pace too for a solo, windy ride – 27km @ 29 km/hr.

    I don’t know who some of them are so I am going to guess it’s one of those puppet type ones?? (the third or second last?)

    LOVE basil brush (? hope i am remembering that right) and I used to watch the show that has that cute dog in front of the carousel…but I can’t remember what it’s called??

    We love Basil Brush. Have probably five of the newer series DVDs.
    Boom Boom!

    Answers are easy: just hover the mouse over the picture. I hated it when Noddy went digital.

    Ha – as we’re roughly the same age, they all played apart – Have you seen the latest Magic Roundabout? Dylan is still slow but he appears worse for wear on some substance abuse.

    I’m so pitiful; I don’t recognize any of those characters. Maybe it’s early dementia setting in.

    I met another Haysom from Essendon today – you are not related.

    I loved Andy Pandy, and The Magic Roundabout. I remember them all, but as we are around the same age, and were both born in the UK, it makes sense really doesn’t it 😀

    Andy Pandy’s coming to play, la la la la la laaaa

    Was Douglal on speed? Did Ermintrude eat too many magic mushrooms and if Brian is on downers, what’s the point.
