Lol, I guess nobody is as sad as me!! I was sitting here going "oooh ahhhhh I cant beleive I can remember Ludwig.....and this..... and that...". Of course USC hubby didn't know what the hell I was going on about (except for the Banan splits and Arabian Knights) - so I thought Id share with you guys.

Perhaps I need to get out more

Affer a long illness...when I was a child.....my nan thought it was a good idea that I spent a lot of time relearning English by watching kids TV.....Bill and Ben comes to mind...LOL!

By the time I went back to school 2 years later...with 3 old French ladies and Bill & Ben as teachers.....I had no hope.....

[QUOTE=dragonflydoes anyone remember The Doubledeckers I think that was the shows name. [/QUOTE]Where they the kids that were sort of stage schooley but in a downmarket London way and went round on a bus? It brings back vague memories.

This is the best site I found on this subject, spent a half day on there strolling down memory lane when I came across it ;

http://tv.cream.org/

The guys descriptions are quit wry and witty, very English and funny.

The Double Deckers is listed under D, I remember Doughnut was the fat kid, Brains had glasses and there was a young girl called Tiger??

You could see the doubledeckers at the pictures Saturday morning....along with Buck Rogers......sixpence to get in from what I remember........

I had to go look up the song...

Get on board! Get on board!
Come and join the Double Deckers.
Take a ticket for a journey,
On our double decker London bus.
Ring the bell (ding! ding!),
Toot the horn (honk! honk!),
When you ride with the Double Deckers.
Fun and laughter is what we're after,
On our double double double decker bus.

You're aboard! You're aboard!
You're aboard with the Double Deckers.
Fun and laughter is what we're after,
On our double double double decker bus.
La la la! La la la!
La la la la la la la la.
La la la la la la la la,
On our double decker London bus.

That sounds like my era too; looking back, no wonder we turned out the way we did.

I also see "The hungry catepillar" - one of my favourite books as a child - is to be made into a film.

That has to be one of the all time best kids books "The Hungry Catepillar", bought it for my Daughter who is now 21, and not long ago bought it againe for my young Son.

Another link to a site devoted to childrens tv ...
http://www.jedisparadise.co.uk/index..._Details.htm&1

For me the cream of the crop ...
Bananaman
Captain Pugwash
Catweazle
Chorlton and the Wheelies
Deputy Dawg
Henry's Cat
Michael Bentine's Potty Time
Roobarb
Tiswas

Nothing too serious and nothing educational (yes I know it shows )

Last point , did anybody actually like Scrappy Doo ?

The lead singer with Aswad was also in Double Deckers, with melvyn hayes as the token adult. ( Aka Gloria in It ain't half hot Mum. )
