I know, the Sat morning TV is often really unsuitable for target audience. Plus there's far too much of it; my sister sits there like a lemon from 7am till 11am each weekend.

They should bring back Thunderbirds.I've never met anyone who thinks Thunderbirds is bad. Children and adults like it.

Oh, forget Thunderbirds, they should bring back SESAME STREET this instant!! Oh I loved Sesame Street. I learnt everything I ever needed to know from Sesame Street- the alphabet, how to be nice to people, the difference between 'WALK' and 'DON'T WALK', how to count, why people have different religions, how snakes shed their skins, and how everyone should love each other.
I have no idea why they don't show this funny, warmhearted, engrossing, educational programme in place of such infantile rubbish as the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and 5 see fit to schedule.

Never mind Sesame Street "Can you tell me how to get....how to get to Sesame streeeet" (you'll be humming that all night now). What about The Muppet Show (no, not the Bush administration). Kermit,Miss Piggy,Gonzo,the 2 old critics in the opera box. That was a great show.

I also used to like Fraggle Rock "Down at fraggle rock..boom boom". There is a kids show on in the mornings like Sesame Street nowadays. I think it's called Barney or something. Somebig purple dinosaur thing. The show always ends on an incredibly cheesy song (using the old melody "Nick nack paddy wack give a dog a bone", which was a song about beating Irish people, in England's past). The song's lyrics now on barney are something like - "I love you....you love me....we're best friends as friends can be...with a great big kiss, and a hug from me to you. Dont you know you love me too?". Excruitiatingly cheesy, but betetr than watching news about Hostages in Iraq being threatened with murder and things liket that. Not long ago i was working earlier mornings, and watched Barney instead.

'way back when, there was another kids show with adult appeal -- "Do Not Adjust Your Set".
