Another old telly show I can't remember!

Post by greenberet79 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:37 pm

Right, more ancient TV vaguery!

- It was kids TV, BBC
- It took the 4.35pm slot before Newsround and Blue Peter
- On about 1990-ish
- It was British
- There were puppets in it, but it was mainly real life actors...i think
- Set in - I think, or a hotel, or lighthouse, or both. And there was maybe a magic shop??

Anyone have any ideas??

It wasn't Tricky Business was it? Other than that the only one I can name is Round the Twist. There was a show about two blokes working in a hotel but I can't remember what it was called.

Deffo not Round the Twist, which I used to love (ahhh, summer Fridays....)

I've just looked up Tricky Business - pretty sure it's not that.

Maybe I'm mixing up two different shows. And maybe it wasn't a lighthouse - maybe it was a hotel by the sea??
