I loved anything by Gerry Anderson. Even the early stuff like Four Feather Falls, Torchy the Battery Boy and Twizzle. But Thunderbirds was my favourite of all. :laugh:

If only it were true. It was Tom the Cabin boy and there wasn't a Seaman Stanes! Funny how the collective memory comes up with these things.

I hate those bloody smurfs! :twisted:
They are pretty bad.

My younger brother used to bring his buddy home from school when MTV first came out and they were always thwarted by...

FRAGGLE ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I must admit, if I were a teenage boy, I probably would have preferred the scantily clad young sluttily dressed women and raucous music over some little fuzzy orange builders who supposedly lived underground in a house where a professor and his Sheep Dog lived. BUT, my baby sister was like two or three and she ruled with an Iron Screech. :laugh: :twisted: :laugh:

Wasn't he a lighthouse keeper? Or was he a professor who lived in lighthouse? Or have I completely imagined the lighthouse? o_O

I really loved the Doozers :oops:
