The Banana Splits - the best children's program ever, even if it was made by spaced out hippies!
Fleagle take out the trash and Dear Drooper - hilarious.
Used to love watching that in the summer holidays along with subtitled black and white programs like White Horses and Robinson Crusoe.
Also used to love the Double Deckers.
I see some of you mentioned Corona fizzy drinks. My uncle used to deliver it to people on a milk float in Irthlingborough, Northants back in the 70's.
I used to help him when I stayed at my grandparents in the summer holidays.
Knock down Ginger was a favourite game of the day, knocking on front doors and then legging it. It might be called something different up North?

Must admit I've never heard of 60 seconds!! :shock:

You missed a treat mate :)

It was a filler while you waited for yer mates, when only 4/5 were at the park for a game of footie. One in goal, you had an area, inside you could only score with your head, outside you could only score with a volley, the keeper counted to 60, if you didn't score in that time, someone else went in goal, if you did he'd have to start again from one.

Nana and Grandad's bungalow on Flamborough Head, you could hear the waves in bed at night and the lighthouse shining through the curtains. Tinned salmon Salad with pickled cucumber and pickled spring onions for tea on the Sunday before we drove home.
Fruit salads (didn't like black jacks), Bazooka Joe bubble gum, fry's chocolate cream, Heinz baked beans and sausages, pineapple chunks sweeties, and Spanish shoe laces (liquorice)
Being rubbish as backstop in the school rounders team

No but I have got every episode on DVD!
Got the box set off eBay a few years ago.
My 16 year old daughter thinks I have lost the plot when I sit there creasing up at it.
