oh the memories
19 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

There are certain programmes that you remember from your childhood (now I am 32!)... Dangermouse was the ultimate hero, although I always put on the Penfold voice for my own amusement... Jamie and his Magic Torch - I mean how drugged up was that...Trap Door was so damn funny... but then you have a weird dog faced dragon, a witch that lived in a kettle and little weird bloody things with wheels running around. I mean, come on, CATW rates alongside Will'o'the'wisp and the Magic Roundabout for being the ultimate kids show to watch after smoking a spliff! Anyway, the animation was excellent for its age, and the characters so memorable. Shame its not repeated often, but so much fun!
