My secret valley, my secret valley...
8 December 2004 | by (WA, Australia) – See all my reviews

What a great show. My sister and I used to be addicted to this show - I think it was part of the ABC's Arvo Show with James Valentine (later hosted by Michael Tunn during the Degrassi years). If I remember correctly, the lineup included Astroboy, Monkey Magic, The Goodies, Dr Who and Starblazers. Then, at 5:30pm it was time to turn over for the more grown-up Family Ties.

However, I can't really remember much about the show these days - it would have been on over 20 years ago. The only line I can still remember was when Spider turned to Cribby and said "Things Cribby. Things like...that." What exactly the things were I can't quite remember. Water bombs no doubt.

I believe Simone Bucchanan showed up in Pacific Drive playing two characters who were twins. One was evil and the other was good and the good one had to keep covering for the evil one. Nice!
