TV shows from your country
« on: April 25, 2008, 10:50:42 am »
My boyfriend and I are currently obsessed to a certain degree with Moomins, and he prompted me to share some of the Australian TV shows with you. So post videos of TV shows from your country that you enjoyed as a child.

Bananas in Pyjamas

Part of the opening of Ship to Shore and the start of an episode

Chuck Finn I LOVE CHUCK FINN SO MUCHOMG. </fangirl>

Chuck Finn opening Chuck Finn and Ship to Shore were by the same creators

Escape of the Artful Dodger German. ARG! It's an Aussie show but you seem to be only able to get it in GERMAN. JDVK JBKYH VBGADJYH! Same actor plays Dodger and Chuck Finn. His name is Luke O'Loughlin

Play School

Some old tart watching Smiley Gets A Gun IT WAS EXCURSHINATIN' SARGE!

Round The Twist

Plasmo

The Ferals

Ferals Into  It was eventually replaced by Feral TV, but the original series was the best.

Footrot Flats is a New Zealand comic by Murray Ball about a Border Collie named Dog, his girlfriend Jess, his owner Wal Footrot, Cooch the guy next door, the Murphy's, Rangi, Pongo, etc. It was converted to film yonks ago, and the score was done by Dave Dobbyn (NZ musician).

Footrot Flats - Vernon The Vermin

Footrot Flats - Oughta Be In Love

Dave Dobbyn and the Herbs performing the Footrot Flats theme song Slice Of Heaven  This has clips from the movie, with a lot of the characters in it.

Fucking love this movie/comics/etc.

I still have the full collection of those books. And: Thomas The Tank Engine, Fireman Sam and some other program with wizards who had a book with an old man's face on the front cover which could talk on VHS.

It disturbs me that I actually seem to vaguely remember what show you're talking about.
