Is it any wonder the stories/novels I write can be a bit unusual...

...when this was one of my all time favourite TV shows when I was a kid.

Anyone else remember it?

I'd pay a fortune (well...up to 20 quid anyway) to get my hands on a DVD box set!

Nope never heard of it Calistro. My favourite show was the double deckers but I bet you haven't heard of that either....xx

JJ said...

I've never even heard of that programme.

Somebody else mentioned this the other day, but I don't remember it at all! Mind you, we didn't have a tv growing up. Having said that, I clearly remember Space 1999, which I loved and no-one else can remember!

Boo - it finished just as it got good!
I took a sneaky peek at the Crystal Maze one and all three of us fell about laughing at that :-)

When I was a kid, TV was black and white:-)

Hope you find that box set!

Nope. It doesn't wring any bells. I do remember the double deckers though l-plate.

I only know of this programme because they show this clip of Moira Stuart all the time on programmes like 'Before they were famous'.

There's no children's show better than Button Moon. Fact.

I lOVED this show ~ I have never been able to look an aspidistra with a straight face since, and i sometimes try to talk backwards....

(the above will mean nothing at all to anyone who doesn't remember it!)

I loved it too! Just seeing all those coloured shapes brought back so many happy memories! If you find that box set let me know, I'd buy one...

Calistro said...

LPlate: Nope, not heard of it!

JJ: Really? Mind you it felt like there were TONS of kids TV programmes when we were young so there were lots to choose from.

Karen: Space 1999 doesn't ring a bell but it reminds me of another programme I loved. Number 73 with Sandi Toksvig. I LOVED that!

Tam: I watched some of the Crystal Maze clips too. The outtakes one was very good. The producers basically shout at the contestants and call them imbeciles (just like we did at home!)

Lane: Really?! When I was little I lived in an army base in Germany and we only had TV from 12pm until 11pm (one English channel) and I thought that was bad!

Debs - Nope, can't remember double decker!

A.Writer - Button Moon was my sister's favourite programme too. I bought her one of those whistling mouse things for her birthday once (I think she was 21!)

Kate & KayJay: Yay!!! Two more people who liked it. Brilliant, was starting to think I was the only one!
