Childhood TV Takeover

15th October 2013

Simon Grundy in the morning                                                                              

Here’s what you missed........ 

It has been revealed that 'The Clangers' will be returning to our screens in 2015! Yes, the little pink, long-nosed mouse-like creatures will be making a return to a TV near you. Simon was so happy about this piece of news that he rummaged around to find his penny whistle........why does he keep one at work you ask???? 

However, because of this revelation, we decided to ask on Facebook and Twitter what TV programme from your childhood would you want to see return to our TV screens? There was an amazing response not only online but also with people phoning in. It definitely brought back some very fond memories of peoples’ childhoods. I for one remembered starting the day off watching The Smurfs and Top Cat before school (re-runs obviously......I’m far too young to remember the originals being aired) Then after school I’d rush home to catch Animals of Farthing Wood. Weekends usually consisted of The Raccoons, Duck Tales and Inspector Gadget!!

I must admit I hadn’t even heard of some of the shows people mentioned online.....Pink Windmill, Mary Mungo & Midge, Itsy & Bitsy and The Flumps??? Simons favourite seemed to be Jamie and the Magic Torch, considering he would not stop singing the theme song.....yet again, another one I didn’t know.

Overall I’d say the majority of people agreed that they should bring back Bagpuss and The Banana Splits. To be honest as much as I’d love them to bring back all the classics from my childhood you know that if they did, they’d all be re-mastered and digitally enhanced which just takes all the “classic” away from it. There's nothing better than watching an old cartoon which was hand drawn and makes a lovely crackle sound in the background......that's just my personal opinion.

Get yourselves on Facebook and add to the ever growing list of childhood favourites!

Catch you all tomorrow.
