It made you get up early on Saturday mornings!
15 January 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Simply the best children's TV show ever! Every Saturday morning from around 9am to 12pm on BBC.

Gordon the Gopher was a genius - he was only a puppet, and yet, he was able to yawn when a guest was boring - even really famous people!

Double Dare with Peter Simon was an excellent kids quiz show in the middle (with lots of gunge) and who could forget Trevor & Simon - in particular World of the Strange, the Art people, the Barbers stuck in the 70's, the laundrette guys and the amazing Singing Corner (Swing your pants. They got big stars like Sting to act really silly - brilliant!

They should bring it back!
