I remember watching the Josh Kirby series one Chrismas. Each morning, one of the films was unceremoniously slipped into the early morning schedule, and so it was that every morning for one week of the Christmas period, before I got dressed and went downstairs to eat the food, and play with my new toys, I would be transported to god knows where by one of these awesome adventures. Unfortunately I haven't managed to find a copy since, so I can't vouch for how well they stand up if you watch them a decade later, but for what its worth, my memories of this series are very fond indeed. Believing that I was the only kid in the world who caught the films as they were shown, I was never able to talk about it with my friends... until a few years afterwards, a mate of mine casually asked if I remembered a program called 'Josh Kirby'. To which I was obviously very delighted! I must find a copy again to re-watch, as I think it must be quite special if I remember it so well. I think it was a great blend of comedy, sci-fi, and adventure - in much the same way that the 'Back to the Future' films were... only slightly more fantastical! So, if the opinion of me and my friend Michael is anything to go on, I would suggest this series for any children who are looking to be transported to interesting places for a few hours of each day, preferably if its the Christmas holidays!
