That’s my childhood in a nutshell. Just swap the flashing blade for Hogans Heroes.

Yep great list, loved Weissmuller's Tarzan with Cheetah and boy. Also loved the filmation tarzan series we were treated too (and read on the web that it is probably the most faithful adaptation?)

Still waiting for Tarzan to emerge as a great franchise if done right. Great action hero and we finally have the technology to do wrestling animals/alligators properly.

So much great stuff. CFF I used to watch at saturday morning pics, paired with things like the dreadful Batman b&w series where they are just in suits driving a normal car.

The Flashing Blade was great ( watching as a kid ) as was Littlest Hobo and The Red Hand Gang ( with the boy from Little House On The Prairie ). I also have fond memories of the TV version of The Incredible Hulk.

But nothing will ever top the greatness and genius that was .... Dogtanian And The Three Muskahounds

I see you Dogtanian and raise you Ulysses 31, nothing beats Ulysses 31 80's cartoonwise as far as I'm concerned (you'd have to go down the manga videos released in the last 80s to try, but they weren't on telly)

Sport Billy, Doctor Snuggles, Why Don’t You, Runaround, Chorlton and the Wheelies, many classics, we were spoilt in the 70/80s

Don't know why it suddenly occurred to me last night, must be all the football. But I really used to enjoy "Murphy's Mob". Had a killer theme tune too.

I hated the animation for Dogtanion (though it was probably the English dub that made it feel wrong).

Anyway, Saturday lunchtime's World of Sport wrestling. Now that was entertainment.

Another for Ulysses 31 probably the best animation I saw when I was a nipper.

Around the World with Willy Fog
Mysterious Cities of Gold (That series seemed to go on forever)
Captain Scarlet

TV back then seemed to treat children better than it does today. Phillip Schofield and Andy Crane in the broom cupboard didn't pretend to act like kids (if you get my drift) The likes of Mr Maker and the rest just make me cringe
