If so I can only think of Big Ted, Little Ted, Jemima, Humpty Dumpty - there might be another but I can't think of it - and neither can my work colleagues - hope that's what you meant! xxx

Do you want us to help you create some questions, or just know our favourite progs. One of my favourites was Mary, Mungo & Midge, so you could ask what were they? Mary was a girl, Mungo was a dof and Midge was a mouse. My other faves were the clangers, and the Herbs(what was the lion's name? - Parsley) oh and the Wombles (who was the cook? - madame cholet!!! I feel I am regressing to a long time ago and could go on all night!! Have fun

weyhey, thanks Lesley, how funny is that. You are the first person ever to tell me you remember it, I almost felt I`d dreamed it all up, lol.
I couldn`t go as far as remember the words to the song though, only the first couple of lines maybe although the tune stays with me
