It was on in the 80's and he had a horse he loved and sometimes a friend with a limp. This old woman kept trying to kill him.

GOSH i remember this, did he live in like a derelict barn and the old woman was like a witch/shrewy type woman?

oh, loved this - really badly dubbed, I think...

hercules Wed 13-Jul-05 21:32:11

Yes, bad dubbing.

There were loads of badly dubbed series weren't there?

Wasn't there one about cinderella?
And one about a tree?

You surely don't mean the Singing Ringing Tree Katymac?

God that programme was scary. Still have nightmares.

And Silas looked like a frog.

Ah, kids today, they miss so much!

I have to admit to really liking Heidi too. Even now I occasionally find myself singing the annoying theme tune... Do do di do do di dodi, la laaaa, la laaaaaah!

I remember a kids programme (not dubbed) about a girl travelling with other people possibly after a disaster/WW3? and there was something wierd going on with the electricity pylons and funny music.

Everytime I mention it people look at me as if I were daft and change the subject....can M/N help?

isn;t it a nice day <cough..refuses to look katymac in the eye>

WigWamBam Thu 14-Jul-05 09:19:49

Is it The Changes , katymac?

I still sometimes find myself humming the tune to Tom Sawyer - another of those went-on-forever, endlessly-repeated-during-school-hols things.

Dee dee de dee dee, de de de dee dee-ee dee
La la la la la l-laaaa, la la la laaaaa

Tom was my 1st crush, aged about 8!

(But Silas was unspeakably crap.)

Wasnt there an even worse badly dubbed one about a boy and his smile or something?

georginars Thu 14-Jul-05 09:57:20

Silas was brilliant! but the top photo on that site looks like Victoria Beckham. I liked his geeky friend

katymac Thu 14-Jul-05 11:17:31

Thanks WWB - I was starting to think I was imagining it, It's a relief that I can defend myself as it does exist
