Favourite TV Show as a kid?

Nothing brings back our childhood memories than the theme show of our favourite TV Show.   we didn't have the luxury of streaming services, when  it was on it was on! We had to wait until the adverts to go to the loo or get a snack! The Good Old Days. 

We asked our inappropriate FB family what their favourite TV show was and here are the most popular answers. 

1)  Hong Kong Phooey,

Monkey, also commonly referred to as Monkey Magic (the show's title song), is a Japanese television drama based on the 16th century Chinese novel, Journey to the West, by Wu Cheng'en. Filmed in Northwest China and Inner Mongolia, the show was produced by Nippon TV and International Television Films in association with NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation), and broadcast from 1978 to 1980 on Nippon TV.

12) Young Talent time

13) Top of the pops - OMG, I so remember waiting for this to come on a Thursday night... 

14) Dr Who (the Darleks scared the shit out of me #EXTERMINATE) Tom Baker was Dr Who in my era.

16) Champion the Wonder Horse or Black Beauty 

17) The Wombles 

Can you remember their names? 

Elisabeth Beresford hit on the idea of the Wombles after a Boxing Day walk. Her young daughter mispronounced ‘Wimbledon’ as ‘Wombledon’, and the seed of inspiration was planted.
