I used to like Banana Splits on a Saturday morning ...

 

'Me and my mates' used to re-enact 'the Banana Splits are now in Session' or whatever they said, on the Liverpool underground across to the Wirral, with the old stock - slap the seats and it was like somebody had set a smoke bomb off - don't think they'd been cleaned since they were introduced in 1938 or whenever it was!!

Neither can I. I am not sure if I have even heard of it, or not.

I remember watching Tugs, Thomas the tank engine, Rupert the bear, The Hurricanes, Action Man and Mummies Alive! To name just a few off the top of my head. I’m sure there’s loads more I watched. I sometimes rewatch stuff on our favourite video website and reminisce.

S.C. RUFFEY & Co. BALLAST CONTRACTORS TIDMOUTH, SODOR.

Adding to the favourities. A programme called " The Viaduct" which was about an early locomotive bricked up in a railway viaduct arch and a kid who's great grandfather built it. He eventually finds the loco with adult help.

 

Then there's "Come midnight monday", an import series based on the puffing billy line with a loco called "wombat".

 

Who could forget the "flocton flyer based on what is now the west somerset railway.

 

Others include cartoons such as "The wack races", "Dastardly and mutley", "stop the pidgeon", "the funky phantom", "the hair bear bunch", "yogi bear", "huckleberry hound", "deputy dog", "ivor the engine" and "tom and Jerry". Tom and Jerry had to be a fred quimby version to be proper.

Another favourite was the ground breaking Space 1999, a relative did the special effects for it and went onto be special effects guru for films including Alien.     Blakes Seven, Dr Who, Swop shop, Magpie, Casey Jones, land of the giants, voyage to the bottom of the sea, children of the stones, the time tunnel, land of the giants, lost in space, the muppets to mention but a few.

 

Did anyone see the last series of Casey Jones? I swear it was in colour, I went around a friends to see their new state of the art 6 channel colour tv with a remote control and it was showing on their tv.

Should have said wacky races.
