I think I cheered when the kids won the mega drive plus games in Fun House. I cheered harder when the kid on the red team throttled his go kart into a wall. Quality viewing.

Plus Beil Buchanan slapping the kids helmets at every opportunity raised a smile. Kids tv was a health and safety nightmare by today's standards :lol:

Some good value in those prizes and yes - I cheered too at the Megadrive!

For me I didnt care much for Press Gang and the later end of the day and admittedly Duckula/Raggy Dolls/Super Gran havent aged well but enjoyed Knightmare even if it was the newer episodes. I will probably tune in tomorrow too for sh1ts and giggles.

Fun House, Finders Keepers, Art Attack, Big Bang, T-Bag, Sooty, Duckula and Knightmare all kept me very entertained today.

Mart there's one that was missing that i really wanted to see and that was Bad Influence!
The square is a great shape, and one that is criminally underused in modern game design. In the push to ever more granular, chaotic environments, games have lost sight of the simple pleasures of right angles and straight lines.

Missing this today, but always wished the channel had a retro block or such every day/week. Would make a change to all those reruns of My Parents Are Aliens.... :roll:

Spatz - urgh, it was a pile of crap 20 years ago and nothing has changed. Then Huxley Pig came on and all was right with the world again.

Was Tony Head in it? Loved seeing How 2 again earlier, I used to love that show. Anyone else think Gaz Top looks like Zippy?
