I love Johnny Depp and think he's a fantastic actor ... before we moved here he was filming and went into a shirt shop to look at shirts. The store owner said: "Hey you're Edward Scissorhands!" and his reply was: "Sssh, don't tell anyone!" wonderful attitude, he just wanted to be a normal person. That's why I love him!

Anyway ... when I have time I will find some links to Duckula and Dangermouse, some are on you.tube!


I can see what you mean but it's still fab! Yes,that is a wonderful attitude! WOW!! Looking forward to Duckula and Dangermouse !! (Goes off singin the theme tune) !!

Anyone remember Maid Marian and her Merry Men? My mum used to use me as an excuse to watch it!
I seem to remember some show called Superbear or Superteddy or something, about a teddy bear with superpowers (surprisingly!) Did anyone else catch it?

Maid Marian and her Merry Men was BRILLIANT! And Tony Robinson never had a better role as the Sheriff :lol: Well the Baldricks maybe but there never was an eviller Sheriff :wink:

I do remember Superted but I was a little too old to watch him and didn't have a small child to use as an excuse to view.... :oops:

I liked Maid Marion as well - Danny John Jules (Cat from Red Dwarf) was in it.

I think you are thinking of Superted:

Image

It was made by a Cardiff-based animation company. Actually they did a road safety advert that used to be shown a lot on TV and in it Superted and Spotty Man (voiced by Derek Griffiths and Jon Pertwee respectively) were crossing the road outside Cardiff Castle. :lol:

Superted

Anyone remember Trapdoor? 8)

Trap Door would appear to be a bit of a bargain!!

Hey, good to see you back Lady V! :D

Rent-a-Ghost was brilliant, plenty of slapstick involving grown-ups :P

Aw shucks, thanks Tony. Winter blues - and busy family life too... but I am back - but still feel a bit dull in the brain. :lol:

Thanks also Dotsie, Chris PH and Sjoerd!
