Yes, Barbapapa was great - should have been more popular.

The White Horses song makes me cry blush.

I used to put up with The Moomins, if there was nothing else on.

I loved 'Heidi' I wanted nothing more than to live in The Alps with my Grandfather, and Frauline Rottameyer.

Loved bod and guessing which flavour milkshake he would choose...

Does anyone remember Pipkins with Hartley Hare? Hardly anyone I ask does.

ProfYaffle Fri 18-Jul-08 20:53:26

shock Hartley Hare - it's no wonder I turned out the way I did!

ProfYaffle Fri 18-Jul-08 20:54:15
