Ah, I see where you are going with this but it's wrong.

Ah, I Googled it. Its one of those 'cash in' shows made just to sell a line of ropey toys. By the time it came round I'd got a bit bored of most of these and never watched that show at all (I don't even remember it being on).

Except that Star Wars practicaly invented the formula...

Star Wars is quite uniquely Star Wars. The other show you're quoting is just so bland it could be practically any of the other shows of its era, it has so few distinguishing features. And the toys were't really very good.

The only reason I ask is that as a wee lad I used to love the programme, so when I found a complete series for download I grabbed it right away.

I managed to watch about half of the first episode before losing the will to live. Seeing a bunch of kids spend 10 minutes direct another kid towards a doorway may have been enjoyable for us 20 years ago, but now I found it was like watching paint dry.

Now, Bagpuss on the other hand... ;)
Get Sky TV - there's a channel called Challenge TV which fdeatures old game shows including Knightmare

It's a recent kids show, but Lazy Town makes great drunken TV, especially if you watch the episodes 'Lazy Scouts' or 'Rottenbeard'. :lol: :lol:

Can anyone remember "Dodger, Bonzo and the Rest" starring Lee Ross? "Our House" from Madness was used for the title music.

Oh mist filled pits, dark, dank, unclear. Touch all before me with frost fingered fear!

I loved the Visionaries!

Lazy Town is the best show ever.

My four year old son loves it - and therefore so do I.

Yar har fiddle de dee!
A pirate's life is OK with me!
If you like sailing the sea
Then you are a pirate!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

That whole Lazy Town 'You're a pirate!' song is one of the funniest things I've heard for years.

It is truly great but I do prefer Lazy Scouts.

If you wanna be a Lazy Scout
you've got to loaf around
with your hands in your pocket
and your eyes upon the ground.
