Bloody annoying show too. They had to change his name because they thought children couldn't handle Phileas :roll:

I used to love the Raccoons, me and a friend had an ongoing story we would write and Cryil Sneer was the baddie, we named our hero Sephals Snake. This was in 1996, we were 12.

I used to love going to the Saturday Morning Pictures at the local cinema, watching such classics as "The Lone Ranger", "Flash Gordon", etc. The atmosphere was great with us kids cheering and stamping our feet. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

The biggest Irish pub owners name is Charlie Chalk so it always gives me a chuckle. :lol:

You old git! :twisted:

Actually, so did I. I remember there was one story a bit like Indie Jones (probably why I liked Indie Jones) and every week the hero was going to die so you had to go next week to see what happened :D

And speaking of Batman, wasn't that brilliant? The Adam West Batman was on from Monday to Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday he was always caught and going to die, but on Friday he (and Robin) had a big punch up with the bad guys with "pows" and "kersplats" etc etc. :P

I still like Spongebob. Watched a lot of the Angry Beavers on youtube not that long ago too and it still made me giggle, though it was mostly nostalgia.

Anyone else remember Pocket Dragons? Street Sharks? Thundercats!

An awful lot of these programmes seemed to be designed with merchandise in mind. Transformers springs to mind, although that was at least quite good.

Anyone remember MASK?

What about The Get Along Gang? I remember taking my kids to a department store where there were people dressed the characters. I think the kids were somewhat traumatised. :lol:

I remember MASK and Get Along Gang, though more the names rather than the memory of watching them. And yeah, I didn't think I needed to say Thundercats. ;)
