I find it quite sad that my kids will never know how great Saturday morning TV used to be, and they'll never know how fantastic 'Going Live....' was.

Forgot already?

My Saturday mornings consisted of a trip to the local picture house (cinema for the younger ones) for the ABC minors matinee.
Starting with a sing song and followed by such treats as episodes from Flash Gordon, Casey Jones, Lone Ranger, Laurel And Hardy, The Three Stooges and Popeye.
With no parental supervision, all hell was let loose for a while when the lights went down with popcorn and other things thrown around.
Occassionally you might get a torch light in your face and asked to leave.
What joy!!
All together now

The only time I was in front of the TV as a toddler was whenever Thomas or those Mr. Men cartoons with Arthur Lowe were on.

Without your pants? Oh, it was the eighties, where anything goes. Hope it wasn't screening on a Sunday.
