Wonder of many colours!
9 October 2005 | by (Essex, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I feel I should defend the Multi-Coloured Swap Shop as I feel Theo was a little unfair on it! This was a time of innocence, a time of getting exited when a friend owned a Soda-Stream! You mentioned about a more 'cynical' time now and isn't it good that it wasn't such a cynical time, many kids loved the 'MCSS', myself and my younger brother included. Yes you could watch the mindless Tiswas but for the more erudite and intelligent child, the MCSS offered a lot more! And could anything be funnier than Keith Chegwin, answer me that?! Not forgetting of course, the gorgeous Maggie Philbin and the extremely interesting John Craven. But honestly, I loved MCSS and would love to see it again! Takes me back to Saturday mornings, watching MCSS till 12 and then turning over to watch the footy on ITV presented by Dickie Davies, followed by the wrestling, Big Daddy against Giant Haystacks. It might be fashionable to say you preferred Tiswas but MCSS offered a lot more!

Long live Noel Edmonds!
