The Programmes:

L
From Lassie to Ludwig

Lassie : The all-american dog that could talk to the humans. Spin-off films and plenty of series later we also had skippy the talking kangaroo and flipper the talking dolphin. Ah well, I suppose some people liked them.


The Legend Of Tim Tyler : Tim Tyler, he of the infectious laugh [see first episode where he knocked over an old biddy's fruit basket and laughed in her face?!] who sold his laugh to THE BARON the richest man in the world and owner of some nifty black Kaftans. He conveniently lacked a sense of humour and so traded the ability to make any bet come true for Tims laugh.

Like the Midas touch though Tim realised his mistake and ended up wandering all over the world trying to get his laugh back with the aid of a drunken sailor and a nun? Why he didn't just bet he could get his laugh back bythe end of the day and save us all the endless episodes nobody knows, but basically it was v.poor


Let's Pretend : Dancing and singing and a worm on a stick.

LET'S PRETEND IS AT AN END,
CAN YOU PLAY AT LET'S PRETEND?
JUST PRETENDING, JUST PRETENDING.
LET'S PRETEND, LET'S PRETEND (REPEAT UNTIL ILL).


Little Blue : An elephant who played with his Mum's biro in the bath and got stained blue. The theme tune was classic but I can only remember bits.

LITTLE BLUE
LITTLE BLUE
WHY DO THEY CALL HIM LITTLE BLUE?
PLAYING IN HIS LITTLE BATH AS SOME OF US DO
HE BIT HIS MUMMY'S FOUNTAIN PEN AND BROKE IT IN TWO
THE INK IT SQUIRTED IN THE WATER..WOW!
HIS MUMMY'S GOT A BLUE BOY NOO-OO-OO-OOW


Littlest Hobo : Remembered more for the theme tune than anything else, the littlest hobo made his way across America helping people out before leaving for his next adventure.

THERE'S A VOICE,
KEEPS ON CALLING ME.
DOWN THE ROAD,
THAT'S WHERE I'LL ALWAYS BE.
EVERY STOP I MAKE,
I'LL MAKE A NEW FRIEND.
BUT I'LL KEEP MOVING ON AGAIN,
THAT'S HOBBO STYLE.
MAYBE TOMORROW, I'LL WANT TO SETTLE DOWN,
UNTIL TOMORROW, I'LL JUST KEEP MOVING ON

Theme Tune - Get your hankies ready for the littlest hobo theme


Look and Read : The best schools programme on the TV which has a dedicated home page which I created.

Website - Kids TV's own shrine to Look and Read - But this is a better one
Theme Tune - The Boy From Outer Space Theme (real audio)


The Lost Islands : We'll let the theme tune tell you all about this Australian fayre.

THERE ONCE WAS A WEALTHY MAN
WHO HAD A WONDERFUL IDEA
TO BRING CHILDREN FROM ALL PLACES
WITH ALL KINDS OF FACES
TOGETHER INTO A SAILING SHIP
THERE WERE FORTY BOYS AND GIRLS
THEY WOULD SAIL THE SHIP AROUND THE GLOBE
SO THEY CALLED IT... THE UNITED WORLD (DUM DE DUM DUM DUM)
THE SHIP WAS JUST THREE WEEKS FROM SHORE
WHEN A HURRICANE POURED DOWN
THE WAVES WERE AS BIG AS MOUNTAINS
THEY FELT THEY WOULD SURELY DROWN
THEY JUMPED INTO A LIFEBOAT
AND ROWED AWAY FROM THE WRECK
THEY DIDN'T COUNT THEM
THEY HADN'T TIME
FIVE CHILDREN WERE LEFT BEHIND (DUM DE DUM DUM DUM)
THE CHILDREN FOUGHT THE STORM ALL NIGHT
THEN FINALLY FELL ASLEEP
THEY DIDN'T REALISE THE SHIP
HAD BEEN BLOWN ACROSS THE REEF
INTO THE LOST ISLANDS
BUT...
HIDING IN THE BUSHES
WERE A WATCHFUL PAIR OF EYES
AND LIVING IN THE VALLEY
WERE PEOPLE LOST IN TIME
RULED OVER BY A TYRANT
WHO'S FACE WAS IN A MASK (THE GUY SANG 'WHO'S FACE WAS IN A MORSK)
THE CHILDREN MUST DEFEAT HIM
SO THEY CAN ESCAPE AT LAST
FROM THE LOST ISLANDS
THE LOST ISLANDS

End Theme:
SO TONY, MARK AND DAVID
ANNA AND SUE-YIN
ARE LEFT THERE ON THE ISLAND
WHO KNOWS WHAT COULD BEGIN?
ADVENTURE LIES BEFORE THEM
DANGER LIES BEHIND
AND AS THEY GO ON SEARCHING
WHAT NEW TROUBLES...
WILL THEY FIND?


Ludwig : Ludwig was a diamond-like egg, and a guy with binoculars who spent all day watching him. Ludwig played a mean fiddle. He seemed to have quite a few people round him?
