Without a doubt this show personified the weekends of my childhood. It was the 'only way to start the week end.' I remember when it started in 1993 I was 6. I followed it through the Golden Ages of Andi Peters (who can forget his emotional farewell) and Emma Forbes and then the era of Zoe Ball and Jamie Theakston. Towards the end, the show lost its glow. Fully Booked, SMTV, Go and Live, the Saturady Show and Dic and Dom never reached the heights of entertainment that Live nd Kicking did for me and those of my age group.
Live and Kicking introduced me as a small child to the world of celebrity and marvel cartoons (X-men and Spiderman being the main reason I watched it). Truly children's T.V hasn't been the same since the 90's. I remember the childish comedy of comedy of Trev and Simon that amused me; as well as pointless yet amusing games like Snuffle the Truffle and music shows like hit, miss or maybe. Anyone remember Famous for Five minutes? This was the show that had everything; and the chemistry between the presenters was uncanny. Life has never been the same since...thank goodness it finished though or I don't think I'd have grown up!!!
