Metal Mickey. - Unbeknownst to many of his fans, Metal Mickey was actually already a minor showbiz personality before his eponymously titled series was first broadcast. In 1978 he released a novelty record, ‘Lollipop’, on the EMI label and on the back of this started making appearances on some of the most popular television shows of the time: TISWAS, The Generation Game, Jim’ll Fix It and Game for a Laugh to name a few.
Andy Pandy, Teddy and Loobie lou, first aired on British TV in 1950. My brother was frightened of Loobie Lou for some reason and would hide behind the sofa when she came on the tv. I still tease him about it haha!
CLANGERS - I could never understand them but the programme always seemed to make complete sense! I think I even tried to knit my own Clanger once! #RePin by AT Social Media Marketing - Pinterest Marketing Specialists ATSocialMedia.co.uk
The first episode of Captain Pugwash aired on 22 October 1957. The children's animation was written, illustrated and produced by John Ryan. The bumbling Captain was brought to life by Peter Hawkins, who provided all the voices. The simple but beautifully crafted cartoon, with cut-out figures moved by cardboard levers, contributed to the overall charm of the programme, which is still fondly remembered years after it was last shown.
