This brings back memories
11 January 2020 | by mikeadrianoSee all my reviews

I used to watch this as a kid in South Africa, it aired weekdays from 15.30 till 16.00. I never missed an episode and remember how I wished that I had friends like these three. Looking at the show with nostaglic glasses now, 23 years later, its still a wholesome, feel good show. We need more shows like this for today's youth. Yeah its corny, badly acted and predictable but its also very much lovable. Give it chance, you wont be disappointed.
