Unforgettable
17 March 2005 | by redcustardSee all my reviews

Well, what can I say? If you've seen this show you'll certainly know all about it, and if you haven't you ain't likely to now and will never know what you've missed. I don't know whether to be sorry or glad.................... Those in the know will also treasure hallowed memories of the original "Andy Pandy". After that, everything went wrong - television turned colour and abominations such as "The Magic Roundabout" and "Kimba the White Lion" infiltrated our screens. Let's face it, that was the beginning of the end for quality television. Anyone who wasn't brought up on shows of this calibre just hasn't lived.
