Me! It was great TV. When my kids were small, I managed to find a VHS of Watch With Mother favourites such as The Woodentops, Andy Pandy and Bill and Ben. They were excruciatingly bad and not a bit like I remembered them. But Tales of the Riverbank was still enchanting.
"Goodness is about what you do. Not what you pray to."
I used to watch Tales of the Riverbank, too, as it was repeated in the '90s. I'm really interested in children's programmes from earlier decades and find the simplicity in a lot of them most charming, and respect the ones that really keep a Britishness to them, or aren't heavily bogged down by political correctness.
I grew up with Andy Pandy, the Wooden Tops, Bill and Ben the Flowerpot men, Muffin the Mule etc. in the 50s when TV for all was a very new thing and broadcasting was limited to sessions during the afternoon and evening on one BBC channel only. They would all be excruciating to watch for a sane adult, but I loved them all. PC-ness hadn't been invented.

Spent the weekend with friends playing board/card games,
After 8pm when the alcohol is in full flow, we play Cards Against Humanity. With much hilarity and immature, silly, crude, risque and dark humour, certain quotes are immortalized. Someone kept a log it seems and I've just read a few
Please do not play the game if you are of a sensitive disposition or easily offended, its billed as a game for horrible people for a reason.
