"Les Chévaliers du Ciel" in original.

The pilots were called Tanguy e Laverdure.

Used to LOVE it.

Over here in the UK it was called "The Aeronauts"

That hardly seems fair. You got jets and Mirage pilots and we got HR PuffnStuff. I wanna do over,

Children's TV in the UK during the 70s was amazing. It was like World Cinema for kids. I really feel sorry for kids today, there isn't even one programme that isn't complete bobbins. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

I agree. But at least now you can buy Battle of The Planets, Fraggle Rock and Dungeons and Dragons on DVD.

Cheers, Spinner

I think the reason Kids TV is so bad is because when a new programme is proposed the first question that get's asked is "What's the Merchandising Angle on This?"... what you end up with is programmes that are little more than promotional material for toys, lunchboxes, t-shirts etc etc.

That said, I'd be quite happy to find a "Les Chévaliers du Ciel" T-Shirt!

But I'd be even happier if they were still making shows as good as Trumpton, Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine and the Singing, Ringing Tree.

In Italy it was good too: we had Hungarian Cartoons (Gustav), British puppets (Stingray), loads of Hanna & Barbera stuff and Pink Panther and after that we got Japanese animation...

Anyone remember "ben and sebastion"?? It had a large dog and a wee boy in it? Or what about the "Flashing Blade"?That was the best thing ever,even the them tune-"youve got to fight for what you want etc.........."Superb!!!
Then there was the russian robinson crusoe,marine boy,screentest and all the rest!!!

Oh happy carefree days of the 70s-apart from my haircut and tanktops!!!!!! Anybody from the UK remember the sweets called "Spangles"?? A whole new thread could start about old sweeties and crisps!!!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
