think my very earliest were parsley the lion (The Herbs), Bod and champion the wonder horse. I can still picture the scenes in my head but not sure which was actually the earliest memory.

Kylie Minogue’s I should be so lucky music video....I just rewatched it, it’s not as good as I remembered it.

@insancerre - Andy Pandy was originally 1950s. It’s one of my first memories, along with Picture Book, The Flowerpot Men, Rag, Tag and Bobtail and The Woodentops.
