I grew up with this, and I loved it!
23 May 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Some of my first great memories of TV were from shows just like this! It was all in good fun and very basic and dodgy, but that's what made it so watchable.

I grew up with this show and other childrens shows like You Can't Do That On Television, Double Dare, Agro's Cartoon Connection and The Girl From Tomorrow, and I'll never forget it! I might be reaching my mid 20's now (ooh where's my walking stick) but accidentally stumbling across this page through other links brought back a few good memories.

I do remember that one of the girls in the show seemed to have developed really fast up front, but I was too young to notice in that way. I just thought she was unusually big.

You have to wonder where these people are now. Simone Buchanan went on to have a successful career for a while and Max Cullen has had a lot of roles in his life, but you don't hear much about the rest. They probably went on with their lives and we probably pass them on the street more than we realize and we don't even notice them.

If anyone does know what any of these people are doing now (including Simone Buchanan), please make a post about it. I'm interested to know. It would be nice if the ABC threw a few shows on here and there just for nostalgia.
