Thanks Mr. Foot, but that's definitely not the one I'm thinking of. My one was a lot more childish-looking. Been meaning to see Time Masters for ages now, it's from the same people who did Fantastic Planet, right? Looks wonderful, a bit.

Now, Ox Tales! There's something I loved! (no English DVD releases afaik i think there is a french dub :( There are eps on Youtube though!)

Vikki the Viking (I remember it!) You are not the only one! That Really Big Club and that she was very tomboy in apperaence, almost like Bobby from D&D You will enjoy this http://chokocat.blogspot.com/2009/11/18 ... do-ds.html Nintendo DS game!!

Galaxy High TV AM favourite, well good

Time Masters is by the guys who did Heavy Metal iirc.. Its bloody Brilliant and would seriously recommend it to everyone.. its very sad. Not Plague Dogs sad, but may need hankies all the same

Vicky the Vinking on the DS???
Is there anything that ISN'T on the DS?

Just looked up Time Masters, it is by the Fantastic Planet guy... Rene Laloux is his name.
Heavy Metal, oddly enough, was made by the folks who brought you Care Bears and The Racoons!

Dunno if it's been mentioned yet but how about a 90's kids show called 'Reboot'? The bad guy was a robot thing called Megabyte. Sure it was a CITV thing.

Glad that people remember it then :) . I only have hazy memories of it myself (think I sent you a few pogs that had Reboot images on them THB) so I'll have to look it up online sometime.

See, I was on about Moebius who wrote both.. rather than Laloux (RIP) who was Director,

I liked Potsworth & Co, and Diplodo looks strangely familiar... Did Burger King ever do anything with Diplodo?
As for Voltron, I was crazy about that for ages. Used to endlessly draw pictures of many robots forming one big robot. Voltron was king, until I saw the Megazord for the first time - which rendered Voltron stupid, ho ho!

How about the Dreamstone? Remember that one? Used to draw many pictures of the main villain from Dreamstone as well.
Here he is, not my drawing (obviously):

As a kid Star Fleet was by far my favourite show...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Bomber

(Called X Bomber in Japan)

It was set in space, tons of battles, there was also this old skool 'ship' like a galleon which was the ghost ship

Great series back then.

Another old skool program i loved - Noggin the Nog

Down at the bottom of the garden, amongst the birds and the bees, there live a lot of little people, called the Poddington Peas!

No Idea re Burger King and Diplodo?
Mega Zord better than Vehicle Volton.. pffft I couldnt stand Lion Voltron for some reason. So would be happy with that!

Dreamstone.. Blimey thats going back some
