Inspired by Darkmatchjobber's Knightmare thread: Which shows did you love in the past and wish they'd revive?

 

For me it's "Interceptor" Even the theme music rules! It was one of those "helecopter" shows that were big in the 80's/90's. like Treasure Hunt etc. As I remember, two contestants were blindfolded and taken by helicopter to a "secret location" (usually a manor house or national park) and given clues to find a key to the backback they had (one of which contained £1000) and then get back to base. However there was a complication. A black leather trenchcoat clad guy in his own helicopter, armed with an infra red locking device (which if aimed at the backback - secretly deadlocked locked it) was aiming to catch them before they did. (The Interceptor would often sneak up right behind a contestant and zap them without them realising)

 

Here's a look:

This Morning With Richard Not Judy. I grew up on it during a period of feeling alienated by church and wanting something more stimulating. Amazingly daring for a Sunday morning show, and hasn't lost its charm even today. I absolutely loved it but BBC didn't seem to agree.

Does anyone remember Round The Bend? I think it was about some creatures that lived inside a toilet cistern or something. No-one I ask seems to remember it, though...

Does anyone remember a cartoon about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? It was on Channel 4, if I remember correctly, and was only on for about 2 series, possibly just the one series, I can't remember.

 

T'was an awesome, awesome cartoon and I don't know anyone else who watched it.

 

Other than that: Dungeons and Dragons, Pole Position, Visionaries, Transformers, Inspector Gadget, Lost Cities of Gold, Around the World with Phillieas Fogg (he was a lion, I think? :lol), Dogtanian and the Three Muskahounds, Go-Bots, X-Men cartoon, MASK, Buckey O'Hare and Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles all kept me entertained when I was a nipper.

 

Great TV.

 

Cheers!

I watched Pokemon too, but I was, like, 10 or 11 when Pokemon hit, so I think I might have been slightly too old.

 

There was also a program that I LOVED that involved some sort of factory that, I think, made sponges. I think it was Dutch. It was called "Bertha" or something like that.

Yeah I remember a cartoon called "Bertha" but I don't remember what it was about. I remember the theme tune went, "Burrr-urrr-tha!" or something.

 

Talking about ace theme-songs; I also remember Raggy Dolls. What a quality show!

 

Cheers!
