I was in high school when this came out. It played on PBS here (the US). Out of idle curiosity I tuned in one night and LOVED it! Up till then the only animation I knew was from Walt Disney, Warner Bros. or Hanna-Barbera. I thought animation was just kiddie stuff. Boy was I wrong! The stories here were not aimed at kids (some were but not all). They were aimed at general audiences but didn't speak down to the audience like animation at the time did. It assumed you had a brain and knew how to use it:) The stories were interesting and thought-provoking and it introduced me to all different styles of animation from all over the world. It made me realize that animation could appeal to adults AND children. Also Jean Marsh was a wonderful host. She was a beautiful woman and her voice was very soothing and pleasant to hear. I haven't seen it since it went off the air and don't think I want to. Usually childhood memories DON'T live up to expectations. Still--I have great memories of this show and enjoyed it very much.
